Meet Maria. She just made a big deal on Shark Tank and you’ll definitely want her product.

Coming up with chic ways to accessorise your outfit every day can be hard to do at the best of times, especially when you’re on a budget.

Enter the 10 Way Necklace, a unique design by Australian business woman, Maria Nicola.

Appearing on Wednesday night's episode of Shark Tank, Nicola presented the life-changing impressive creation to the panel, seeking a $75,000 investment for a 20 per cent stake in the small business.

The investment, Nicola said, was primarily to be spent on PR, online marketing, social media and SEO improvement.

While all five sharks were impressed with the product, all three males unsurprisingly bowed out within minutes, recognising the female jewellery market was not any of their strong points.

Knowing they had a strong product and savvy business woman on their hands, sharks Janine Allis and Naomi Simson battled it out with competitive counter offers for higher stakes than Nicola had originally offered up.

But realising the worth of her invention and the investing power, Nicola eventually settled with Naomi Simson, shaking on a $75,000 for a 40% stake.

"I know what I'm going to bring to this business, I can see it clearly," Simson said.

Thank you, Nicola. All our future mother's day, birthday and Christmas gift ideas are sorted!
