A former proprietary trader on Wall Street, Hilary Park turned her jewelry-making hobby into a full-time career when she launched her line of handcrafted baubles in 2009. Now, Park makes the transition even more official with the opening of this boutique and workshop in the borough she calls home. Vibrant red walls showcase two of Park’s own black-and-white drawings, while gravel is used to display her jewelry, combining grit and glamour in an effort to reflect the aesthetic of her creations. Cuff fanatics will find complex yet wearable designs, including sterling-silver versions adorned with flowers ($525), love birds ($625) and intricate beadwork ($825) inspired by the Masai tribe in Kenya. Find your sign in Park’s collection of astrological pendants ($450) or pick up sterling-silver agnostic cross earrings ($250). Most items can be special ordered in gold, and custom requests are welcome.
