I would like to start up Jewelery store that will specialize in sterling silver. I have located suppliers for my common stock items and I am planning on going to my local tech school (MATC) and try to get some up and coming jewerly artist a chance to create custom items to sell and get them some college work credits.
The store will be ran mostly by me until it gets going, with of course a couple of part time students to work on those custome pieces I was talking about. The amount of $10,000 will provide me a location and equipment and supplies for 1 year.
I truly believe in this project and know that the students will enjoy a chance in showing their skill to the public.
So any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.
