Here Are the 3 Recipients of Boma’s BIPOC Jewelry Designer Grants
They will receive $500 each in sample production resources as well as mentorship and business incubation.
The Seattle-based fashion jewelry brand created the grant last year amid the calls for racial justice and increased diversity in the jewelry industry, with the intention of making it a one-year thing.
The program since has grown to be a mentorship and incubator, shifting from one large grant to three smaller grants to help more designers.
The recipients of Boma Jewelry’s spring 2021 grant are:
--Morgan Johnson of Leigh NY;
--Gwen Beloti of Gwen Beloti; and
--Heather David of One More Again Jewelry.
The grant provides the three with $500 each in sample production resources as well as mentorship and business incubation.
“We believe that our grant program can be a stepping stone for emerging designers to grow and scale their business,” Boma CEO Suzanne Vetillart said, providing the opportunity to test out new designs in the market before expanding production to minimize risk.
