The Downtown Racine Corporation has announced the winner of the pearl pendant that was created by Chris Sklba of Art Metals Studio in honor of the DRC’s 30th Anniversary. 

The winner is Robert Philopulous of Racine. Philopulous, who is a frequent visitor to Downtown Racine, docks his boat along Root Riverduring the summer months. He is also a frequent Downtown shopper and finds the restaurants along Main and Sixth some of his favorites.

The Downtown Racine Corporation partnered with local Downtown jeweler and designer, Chris Sklba, to help promote DRC’s 30thAnniversary during the month of August. Because pearls are the symbol of a 30th anniversary, Sklba created an original-design pearl pendant to commemorate this special occasion. Valued at over $1,100, the pendant is palidium silver with sterling and 18ky mokume-gane and a Tahitian pearl.

The winning name was drawn on Saturday, September 11, during the “Clocks on the Auction Block” public art auction at Monument Square.
