Among the jewelry companies that JCK spotted on Inc.’s annual list, now in its 37th year:
– Liberty, Mo.–based Nickel and Suede, which makes jewelry and accessories out of leather and started from an Etsy shop, landed at 127, with three-year growth of 3,101 percent and 2017 revenue of $4.1 million. Its founder, a mother of five, also received a separate Inc. profile.

The companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved a three-year average growth rate of 538.2 percent and a median rate of 171.8 percent. Their aggregate 2017 revenue was $206.1 billion.
“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” said James Ledbetter, Inc. editor-in-chief, in a statement. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
