About Us

Our Mission

Lucente Studio curates collections of modern jewelry and design objects highlighting emerging artists. We present these designs in our online shop as well as through custom shopping experiences held in pop-ups, studios and galleries. By sourcing temporary commercial environments we deliver social and personalized events complementing our web offering.

Each collection by Lucente Studio gives design lovers a clear alternative to the mass-produced, mass-marketed products commonly offered by retailers around the web and the world. Each Lucente Studio artist is personally invested in craftsmanship, quality and design through their limited-edition or one-of-a-kind pieces.

Since 2014, Lucente Studio has co-produced STYLE – a show, sale and benefit celebrating independent contemporary design.

Lucente Studio's creators &  partners, Renee Berenson and Laurel Skillman

Attorney Renee Berenson directs Lucente Studio operations from the company's Silicon Valley headquarters. Renee takes great pleasure in traveling the world to discover new design talent and beautiful modern design pieces.

Recently returned to to the U.S. from living in London and Berlin, Laurel Skillman is never more content than when she travels in pursuit of great design. Before co-founding Lucente Studio in 2010, Laurel enjoyed a rewarding career in online and traditional consumer media marketing – most recently with Dwell, the modern architecture and design media company based in San Francisco.

STYLE is Silicon Valley’s premiere independent contemporary design show, sale and benefit. Created by Diane Master in 2005 and co-produced in collaboration with Renee Berenson and Laurel Skillman of Lucente Studio since 2014, STYLE brings distinctive jewelry, fashion, accessories and home goods from the artists’ studios to discerning shoppers in support of a worthy cause.
