We are happy to welcome two internationally-acclaimed designers to the exclusive showcase of designers – Lecil Henderson, of the Henderson Collection and LUCA by Lecil, and Conni Mainne.
“We are thrilled to introduce these two exciting designers to our community,” said Dan Schuyler, co-owner of Lily & Co. “They really bring something special to each piece with their fine craftsmanship and talents as jewelry designers.”
Henderson credits Frank Lloyd Wright’s design sense and his mother’s common sense for his comfortable, stylish lines. He has built collections that move and flow with a woman’s form and created a trademark with various shades of gold including brown, black and blue. LUCA by Lecil is his latest collection designed in Italy and considered by many to be fashion forward.
“Beautiful fine jewelry should grace the wearer,” says Mainne, who is inspired by nature. The verdant environment of Mendocino on California’s northern coastline, which she calls home, is especially inspiring to her.
Mainne’s keen sense of grace, line and her affinity with sacred geometry are reflected in the lyrical forms she creates in 18-karat gold and a new blend of silver and 5-percent platinum. The striking shapes found in botanicals, surf, nautilus, clouds, stars and moon infuse Mainne’s jewelry with a mystical quality of the natural world.
“I feel strongly about the positive role artists play in society,” says Mainne, who started her training in jewelry fabrication at the early age of fifteen. “I believe in the importance of bringing beauty into the world.”
