Belated realization of unsalable product

I have an unusual product: tiny metal sculpture that is made by prototyping technology. I realize that doesn't convey much, so the site for it is http://microsculpture.com.
I'm at a complete loss on marketing these. They sell when they're in front of people, but apparently there's no way to get them there. Art galleries won't touch them because they're too small to be art. Jewelry boutiques understandably aren't interested because they're not jewelry. I don't have the personality to do craft shows. The prices cannot be brought down; the direct costs on these are about $90 per.
I'm doomed, aren't I. I could come up with any amount of promotional work and front money if it would help, but I'm starting to think that this is simply the impossible product.
