More polymer niches

A few more Niche Award candidates have surfaced. Sandra McCaw’s work pictured here has been nominated in the fashion jewelry category.

Sandra’s added some newer pieces to her CraftHaus page that you’ll want to catch. Her diamond-studded polymer earrings took top honors at the League of NH Craftsmen’s Fair in the Jewelry with Stone category.


wo of Elise Winter’s pieces were designated Niche 2010 finalists in the sculpture to wear and polymer categories.

Elise is campaigning in earnest for support for the Racine Art Museum’s (RAM) polymer collection. She tells us that a Pier Voulkos’ necklace is featured on the cover of RAM’s current exhibition catalog.

(Scroll down to the donation button in the right hand column here and be sure to note “catalog premium” in the comment box.) The offer is only good through November 30.
