De'Nyle was introduced to the adult film industry by Selena Steele.[7] New Sensations signed De'Nyle to an exclusive two-year contract within her first month in the industry.[7] She did her first scene with Peter North.[7] In 2000, she made her directorial debut with XXXtreme Fantasies of Jewel De'Nyle for New Sensations before parting ways with the studio.[8] Later that year, she co-wrote and co-produced Bound by Blood for Extreme Associates and started a series for Jill Kelly Productions titled Sluts of the Nyle.[8]

De'Nyle has directed over 80 films.[2]

Her mother was also a pornographic actress going by the name De'Bella.[2][9] She was involved in a dispute with her mother as to her proceedings on camera and using Jewel's name to gather fame in the industry.[10] By the start of the 2008 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo they had reconciled their differences, with De'Nyle saying that the biggest part of their reconciliation came when De'Bella left Platinum X Pictures.[11]

In January 2003, she became a founding part-owner of the porn studio Platinum X Pictures, located in the San Fernando Valley of California. De'Nyle left Platinum X in June 2006.[12]

Personal life[edit]

She was born to Debbie Schwarz, who had her when she was 19.[9] De'Nyle was later adopted by Larry Jack Schwarz, a former Republican Colorado state legislator.[13] De'Nyle was the co-owner of Platinum X Productions while her mother Debbie was the sales director.[14][15][16]

She started a two-year long relationship with colleague Peter North in 1998, after entering the adult business.[7]

She married Michael Stefano in 2002 (since divorced).[3] In September 2005, she was reported to be "newly married" in New York.[17] She identifies as a pagan and does not believe in God.[18]
