Georgetown-based Shannon Koszyk, best known for her eponymous line of religious iconographic jewelry beloved by rock stars and starlets alike (Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’s Rooney Mara are fans), is about to see (or make) her name in lights. This October, the jeweler debuted a lighting collaboration with Atlanta-based home furnishings manufacturer Currey and Company at North Carolina’s famed High Point Market. Koszyk uses wrought iron, aged brass, cut crystal and chain in her designs, which verge on gothic, but would be right at home in a range of décor where a touch of drama is called for. Our pick: the crown-of-thorns chandelier ($3,490) emblazoned with Koszyk’s motto, “Fortune favors the bold” in both Latin and English. We tend to agree.
