Mary Lynn Podiluk was selected as a finalist in the 2016 NICHE Awards for her handcrafted engagement ring, 'Entwine' in the Jewelry: Wedding category. 

The NICHE Awards program recognizes the outstanding creative achievements of American and Canadian fine craft artists in both professional and student divisions; this year, only 180 entries out of over 1600 from across North America were named as finalists.

Judging is based on three main criteria:

  • Technical excellence, both in surface design and form
  • Market viability
  • A distinct quality of unique, original and creative thought
