Contestant's Case to Win

My inspiration for Nature's Gems came while visiting family in Brazil where I found striking jewelry and gemstones at Feira Hippie, a popular outdoor market in Ipanema district of Rio de Janeiro. Building on the beauty I found, I designed and created my own jewelry showcasing these elegant treasures. Combining the simple beauty of the gemstones, my gift for creative design, and with my family's encouragement, I took a chance and began importing Brazilian gemstones. And thus, Nature's Gems was born.
Natureâ€™s Gems is a simple yet elegant line of jewelry created from all natural materials such as semi-precious stones, sterling silver and wooden beads. Each piece is a unique, handcrafted work of art that makes the transition from everyday casual to special occasion with ease. I continue to seek new ideas, designs, and materials as I expand the range of my jewelry collection.
I would like to win the Leading Moms in Business Competition in order to help Natureâ€™s Gems develop into the thriving business I know it can be. With the assistance of StartupNationâ€™s expertise and experience my business can reach itâ€™s full potential.
Please cast your vote for Natureâ€™s Gems!
