Lucina K. About Us / FAQ
Who is Lucian K.?
Lucina K. Geiser is the grandmother of Artist, Lori Strickland. The line is named as a tribute to her faith and creative spirit. The idea that you can try and accomplish anything were part of Lucina K.’s teaching – along with a healthy dose of cooking, sewing, painting and all manner of crafts. Lucina K. passed away shortly before we launched the line, but she will always be present in spirit.
Every piece in our line is made by hand, just the way Lucina would have done. We believe that handmade items bring the spirit of the maker with them wherever they are. We are happy to share the Lucina K. spirit of Love and Creativity with you.
How and Where are the Pieces Made?
All pieces in the Lucina K. line begin with a wax sculpture carved by Artist, Lori Strickland. Pieces are “lost wax cast” into either sterling silver or lead-free pewter. Some pieces are then turned into mold masters to reproduce the design. Other pieces, such as the Peas in a Pod, are handmade, one at a time, and each one is an original. After casting, each piece is hand finished by our team of talented artists. All pieces in the Lucina K. line are made in our studio located in Historic Quincy, Florida.
Are Chains, Story cards and Gift Packaging included?
Yes! See descriptions for chain type, length and material for each piece. Each piece comes with story card/artist bios. These cards are unique to the piece and the wording on the card is listed in the description for each piece. Bios let people know that the items are handmade and MADE IN USA. Story cards are fun insights to the inspiration for the piece. See the item’s description for a picture of the packaging for each item.
