EP #33 Nicole Parker King

By Ward Richmond

“Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men`s blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will never die, but long after we are gone will be a living thing, asserting itself with ever- growing insistency. Remember that our sons and grandsons are going to do things that would stagger us. Let your watchword be order and your beacon beauty.” – Daniel Burnham

Attended the same school 7-12 grades
Sadly her father passed when she was 15, shaking up Nicole’s world
Became a bit of a troubled artist, punk rocker in her mourning years
Self-proclaimed non-conformist, rebelled against the alt scene in college(Rhode Island School of Design) by going back to a full on preppy aesthetic
Lifelong manifester, journaling and dreaming into her current reality since way back
2006-07 was living in New York and made a trip to Sri Lanka, in the search for a cool travel trinket she realized she wanted to start a travel jewelry business. Enter Jet Set Candy
