By Staff | Feb 26, 2020

Lily & Co. Jewelers on Sanibel will mark the return of New York City jewelry designer Charles Krypell to the islands with a show on March 6-8, featuring of his finest craftsmanship.

It will kick off on March 6 from 5 to 8 p.m. with a cocktail reception. Krypell will be present to greet attendees, as well as again on March 7 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on March 8 from noon to 4 p.m.

“This event is the highlight of the winter season and we’re thrilled to welcome back Charles to our balmy islands,” Dan Schuyler, co-owner with Karen Bell, said.

Krypell’s last show at the store took place on Black Friday to kick off the holidays.

“Charles was a huge hit with our clients over the holidays and they’ve clamored for us to bring him back,” Schuyler said. “It wasn’t hard to persuade Charles to come visit us again so soon. Our gorgeous weather, fine beaches and unspoiled nature on Sanibel make it easy to draw the world’s finest jewelry designers for a winter visit.”

Trained as a sculptor, Krypell realized his calling as a designer while attending the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. The New York City native incorporated his passion for three-dimensional designs into jewelry, learning from master jewelers. He launched his first collection 40 years ago to critical acclaim.

“Charles Krypell’s ageless designs and fine craftsmanship transcend time even as his creations blend with the most modern fashions,” Schuyler said. “His works are the perfect match for the casual yet refined ambiance of Sanibel and Captiva.
