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 Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
