Five for Friday: Chicago Gem Queen Jeanette Park
1. Where do you find design inspiration?
JP: Everywhere, sometimes it’s the smallest thing that sparks an idea! But most often I get inspired by architecture and fashion.
JP: Never give up. It’s hard to keep pushing ahead without knowing if success is in your future. But giving up is a sure way to failure.
JP: Get out and meet people in the industry through associations, networking events, and seminars etc. It’s the best way to gain perspective, get advice and feedback, and sometimes make great new friends!
JP: The Amethyst Oval Cocktail ring – I made this for my Grandmother for her birthday. She loves big, bold and colorful jewelry. At 90 this year she is still stylish and enjoying life to the fullest. I can only hope to be like her when I’m her age!
