Christopher Slowinski with winner

(PRESS RELEASE) Rhonda Jacobson of Cumberland Diamond Exchange, Smyrna, GA, won the original artwork titled “New York State of Mind,” painted by Christopher Slowinski, founder and owner of Christopher Designs. In response to her win, Rhonda shared, “In my opinion, when you obtain an original piece of art, you also receive a piece of the artist’s soul – a true treasure. That is the greatest gift of all! I knew Christopher was a talented jewelry designer, but I’m amazed at what a gifted artist he is as well. I can’t wait to hang this gorgeous New York skyline in our store and share the Christopher Designs story with all of our customers that come in.

Original oil painting entitled “New York State of Mind”, is oil on canvas and measures 30” X 30”. The piece was painted by the designer himself, Christopher Slowinski and is an homage to lower Manhattan in New York City. The scene depicts the juxtaposition of the old and new showing the architectural details of the storied Brooklyn Bridge next to the recently completed One World Trade Center. Slowinski used a painterly technique in pastel shades of yellow, pink and blue.

Drawing took place at the Christopher Designs booth at JCK Las Vegas and the painting was shipped to winner in Georgia on Sunday afternoon, June 2, 2019.

Draw was open to all retailers who attended JCK who made and kept their appointment with the designer brand.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
