Annual Ornament

Each year our juried members vie for the honor of creating the League's Annual Ornament. They submit their work and a selection is made by a specially chosen committee. This tradition began in 1988, and the Annual Ornament has become a must-have holiday treasure.

The League of NH Craftsmen’s annual ornament for 2014 is Whispers of Spring, a hand-formed cast pewter birch branch, made by Kristine Lane and Paulette Werger, both juried in metal. Kristine and Paulette created the ornament to pay homage to the official state tree of New Hampshire. The white birch is one of the first trees to come into leaf, celebrating the emergence of spring. It has a celery-colored ribbon for hanging on a tree or wreath. Whispers of Spring ornaments are sold exclusively by the League of NH Craftsmen Fine Craft Galleries, in the League's online store, and at the Annual League of NH Craftsmen’s Fair, August 2-10, 2014. Each ornament is numbered as one of a limited edition and is signed by the artists. The ornament comes beautifully gift-boxed and sells for $23.
