The Halstead Grant Call for Entries
Halstead is calling for entries to its 9th annual grant competition. The Halstead Grant is awarded each year to a promising new jewelry designer working primarily in silver. The winner receives a $5,000 cash start-up grant plus $1,000 in supplies and recognition in the industry. Deadline June 9, 2014.
Qualified applicants should be US jewelers who recently launched independent studios with the intention of selling to a national audience. To apply, candidates must submit a portfolio and answers to specific business questions. The rigorous application is designed to encourage strategic planning and sound management practices amongst new jewelers in the industry.
“When selecting a winner we weigh the portfolio and business portions of the application equally. We are looking for quality craftsmanship and innovation in design in the jewelry photographs. The application answers should show a holistic approach to developing a brand and managing production to meet changing demand as the business grows,” said Hilary Halstead Scott, the program coordinator.
