12-Year-Old Entrepreneur Starts Online Jewelry Business
By Stephanie Schaefer
Gabrielle Jordan Williams founded her own jewelry company, Jewelz of Jordan, in 2009 when she was only 9 years old.
The young entrepreneur began making jewelry when she was just 7 years old. “I’ve always loved jewelry,” Williams tells JCK. “I used to go through my grandmother and mother’s jewelry boxes.”
After wearing one of her creations to school, she caught the attention of a classmate who asked to purchase the ring. Encouraged by her mother, she started creating more jewelry and turned her line into an online business. “My parents help me out in the business,” Williams says. ”My mom inspired me to create the line.”
Miss Williams has also written and published a book, a guide to achieving success at a young age, entitled The Making Of A Young Entrepreneur: A Kid’s Guide To Developing The Mind-Set For Success.
