About Jennifer Park:


Jewelry is so much more than just body adornment. An extraordinary piece of art jewelry will make you feel uniquely special simply by wearing it.

My enamels are uncommon because I use vivid, transparent colored enamels on luminous fine silver. I use transparent enamels because I love the intense hues of the glass and the ability to layer colors for unusual effects. Before firing on the enamel, I use a special heat treatment on the surface of the silver to give it a shimmering, reflective quality. Once color is applied to the gleaming surface, the effect is stunning! The textures that I use on the silver are unique to each piece since they are usually combinations of various patterns. The undulating curves of my cloisonné wires capture the movement and energy of the natural world.

All of my enamels are set using the precious metals of gold and silver. The bright white of silver settings allows the colorful enamels to take center stage. High karat gold (22k and 18k) comes in rich buttery yellow tones and complements the riotous colors of the enamels.

I received an MA in Jewelry/Metals from New Jersey City University and a BFA from University of Tennessee. My work has been honored in the Saul Bell Design Awards, Niche Awards, and MJSA Awards, and has been published in Art Jewelry and Lapidary Journal.

The Couples Ring Making Workshop was a great experience. We have a lot of fun making our matching rings, very romantic. We learn a lot about how rings are made, and also a little history of Alexandria and the shop. The class is at a beginner level, so you don't have to have experience in making jewelry before. Some wine was served during class. You can also buy some of their unique jewelry, and take other classes if you are interested in making jewelry (not just rings). There are also many unique shops for you to look around in the area. A coffee place nearby was great and very cozy.
