Jeweller Karyn Chopik’s 2012 fall collection at the Effusion Art Gallery on Saturday, November 10 is called Temptations. Artist Karyn Chopik initially struggled with the name as it is a daring statement, but rather than fight it, she decided to own it.
Temptations is a bold, sultry collection oozing with sex appeal. It has a powerful energy that draws you in. Chopik is passionate about this line and feels it is her strongest collection to date.
The jewelry is alluring, old world and mysterious. The velvety texture of faceted tiger’s-eye feels warm and supple against your skin. It is a tantalizing contrast to the cool teasing touch of the citrine. Tiger’s- eye enhances sexuality and determination. Citrine makes one feel alluring and self confident . It helps the wearer own their power; together they will spellbound you. Be even hotter with the additional layering of other pieces like Ganesh, the Indian symbol for removing obstacles, hanging suspended from smokey sterling silver chains. When you wear Chopik’s jewelry, you will feel luxurious and lush.
Woven throughout the line is a replica of large antique Tibetan key Chopik purchased in her travels. It was used to open temple doors. Let it open the door to your hearts desire and discover the secrets waiting patiently inside. Be prepared to be tempted.
