I had to look this up, so I thought info on "bridge" jewelry would be helpful to others. Entrants must have started their business since 2007 and be working in jewelry that bridges the gap between costume and fine jewelry.

This grant is definitely worth pursuing; the exercise of producing the portfolio and business plan will develop great skills, as well as a portfolio and business plan.
