Halstead president Hilary Halstead Scott introduced The Halstead Grant in 2006 as a way to bring the business plan concept to the jewelry community and encourage makers to establish clear goals and measurable steps towards self-sufficiency.
"It's amazing to see how much entries have changed in the decade (plus) that we have been sponsoring the grant. New jewelers are using their social media savvy to learn about their customers and engage with them in exciting ways to grow their businesses."
2016 guest judge Cathleen McCarthy of The Jewelry Loupe says, "I was really impressed with the artists. What they've done in such a short amount of time is mind-blowing and their goals are just as impressive."
