Lyman Museum to host Ni'ihau shell jewelry workshop
Just in time to help you create your own spectacular Ni‘ihau shell Christmas gifts, Kele Kanahele, master shell lei maker from the island of Ni‘ihau, returns to the Lyman Museum to teach this authentic art of Hawaii 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 13-14.
Necklaces (lei), bracelets and earrings created in the pikake style can be made using momi ke‘oke‘o shells (white), momi lenalena shells (yellow) or momi ‘onikiniki shells (white with dark specks).
Choose your color when making your reservation. On either day you can learn how to make an 18-inch necklace ($205), a bracelet ($85) or a pair of earrings ($65) — or more than one piece, as long as you sign up for specific pieces in advance. Space is limited to 25 persons per day; only people who registered can be permitted in the classroom.
Reservations must be made, pieces and colors specified and the workshop fee(s) paid by today (Friday, Nov. 29) to ensure your place and the availability of shells. Give someone you love (yourself, perhaps?) a very special gift this holiday season.
For more information, please call 935-5021, ext. 101, or stop by the museum’s admissions desk.
