Vancouver artist Karyn Chopik has explored the accessory industry for over two decades. Graduating from the University of Alberta with a background in fine arts, she soon became partner in a successful jewelry company with handmade product sold in stores across North America.
When the industry shifted to mass-produced work, Chopik’s business sense led her to explore sales, forming an accessory agency, representing top designers such as Karl Lagerfeld. Longing for hands-on creativity, she returned to her passion with the birth of Karyn Chopik Studio.
Chopik’s free spirit creates a new look each season reflecting her inner essence. Her sculptural work explores a variety of materials from 30,000-year-old wooly mammoth ivory, to hand-forged metal, chunks of semi-precious stone, antique beads, and her own unique carved sterling silver and bronze castings.
