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.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
