Conni Mainne lives and has her studio on the picturesque coastline of Northern California. From her studio, Conni is inspired by the lushness of her surroundings, professionally handcrafting each individual piece.
Brought up in a similarly verdant neighborhood near Seattle, Washington, she has nature in her blood. Having begun her training at age 15, Conni continued her studies when she moved to California. Drawing from universal themes, she connects us to the natural world. It’s easy to trace the inspiration of her decidedly feminine forms, whether the exotic botanical patterns in her signature collection, “Jungle Dreams”, or the subtle woven forms in “Fanfare”.
Conni’s vast experience as a designer/goldsmith stems from 31 years of honing her skills, owning a gallery, to designing and producing her current 18 karat gold, diamond and fine colored gem collections. Brilliant blue moonstones have always been a integral part of her distinctive designs, chosen for their intense color and mystery. Conni says: “I feel strongly about the positive role artists play in society. I believe in the importance of bringing beauty into the world.”
Collections from Conni Mainne Designs appear frequently in national and international industry publications, and in selected fine jewelry stores across the country.
