PRESCOTT, AZ — ENJI Studio Jewelry owner Niki Grandics of San Diego, CA, is the recipient of the 11th Annual Halstead Grant recognizing jewelry design excellence and business strategy acumen amongst enterprising new jewelers.

Grandics wins $7,500 in cash, $1,000 in supplies, a trip to Prescott, AZ, a signature Grant Finalist trophy made by 2013 winner Rebecca Rose and a cover and feature spread in the new annual grant publication Reveal. That’s in addition to a feature profile and jewelry showcase in the next printed catalog, a blog and video profile, press release assistance and a feedback report from the judging committee.

Grandics trained at San Diego State University and GIA and was a finalist in last year’s Halstead Grant competition.

Halstead President Hilary Halstead Scott said, “Niki took the dream route to prepare for life as a studio artist. She has a marketing education, a metals degree and a GIA Graduate Jeweler certification. She has all the right tools plus a distinct gift for design.”

Grandics said, “It was so helpful just to set aside the time to think about the direction of my business and all of the steps it will take to actually make that happen. That’s definitely something I’ll do going forward.”

Grandics is a member of Ethical Metalsmiths.

Wilkerson Testimonials | MSG Jewelers

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
