What does your business do?

I make handcrafted, wine-inspired jewelry out of repurposed wine corks, reproductions of my wine-themed paintings paired with chandelier crystals, and other related pieces.

How would you use the grant money?

I would use the grant money to purchase jewelry supplies, improve marketing efforts, and help pay for miscellaneous business and administrative costs.

What would the grant enable you to do that you can't now?

Since I've just recently started my business, I'm not making much money yet. I'm using personal savings to pay for most business expenses, so having a little extra cash would help.

If Idea Cafe's Grant helps your biz reach greater success, how will you "pay it forward" to help others in some way?

I would offer advice on branding, since that's one of my strengths beyond the creative aspects of my business. Having a cohesive image is vital for building brand recognition and getting people to remember who you are and what you do.
