About

Creation is the Meaning of Life

Over a year ago, I started to collect stones and beads because of their healing properties. Wanting to find a way to express my feelings for those I cares for led me to designing necklaces. I gave life to words and emotions through my art. Although I have work in portrait, LED, graphics, perfume, and other forms of art, my necklaces are easiest to display and share with the world.

For years, my friends encouraged me to start a jewelry business. Five years later, on July 2009, I finally started Lucem. A bit turbulent at first, my business has stabilized catering to special markets and even more special people looking for ways to express their care for one another.

I hope my jewelry carries this sense of meaning to each and every one. Creation is the Meaning of Life. Our art lives beyond us, it exists, grows and becomes something else because of us. It endures, until it develops it's own life, it's own stories. What we do is the breadth of our immortality.

    Virtually all my necklace designs are named after someone I know and cared for. Because of these people, I wanted to give them a symbol, a representation of my care for them without using words. My necklaces are like poems being worn and seen.

Aloha, my name is Vincent. I've been creating necklaces for over a decade. It all started with the stones and their healing properties--this interested me the most. I started to make designs for loved ones, for special moments, capturing it in art. My jewelry is made to be genderless, fashionable, with a sense of elegance. My jewelry will not be excessively overpriced, but reasonable fashion statements. As of 2012, I have also started a gummy bear line of products, which I will expand slowly, but steadily. I will also try to bring in my other areas of creativity as time permits.

Note: My necklaces have heavy pendants, please do not run or participate in extreme activity while wearing them. Also, many stones are photosensitive--staying out in bright, direct sunlight, will fade them overtime. It is also advisable not to submerge necklaces in water for prolonged periods, especially salt water.

Additional policies and FAQs
Resizing-
If you wish to re-size the necklace, I do list lengths in the item descriptions. I generally include a picture of myself wearing it (my neck is roughly 15"). All re-sizing will require a necklace to be restrung by hand. I will use the following rate structure:
1) $10 resizing for length reduction.
2) $15 resizing for length increase, includes addition of extra beads.
3) Resizing of Tomas ($20) and Mendoza ($40) necklaces require a great deal of work and time to string, thus the added cost.

Custom orders-
To create a personalized design will cost above $100, also depending on the materials chosen and used. The process generally goes as is:
Step 1) Creating a template for a design personal to the purchaser. This includes sampling and testing different stones, shapes, and sizes and matching them up through digital imaging.
Step 2) Receiving all beads for physical template (may take 2-4 weeks depending on source). Testing of look, function, and design (may need to reorder and sample other choices).
Step 3) Final tests for design fluidity and look. Final product made.
