“Kele Kalikimaka!” Just in time for the holidays, Kele Kanahele of the Island of Ni`ihau returns to teach the authentic creation of Ni`ihau shell jewelry at the Lyman Museum! Visit his acclaimed workshop twice in December, this is the first time Kele will be introducing this style:

Friday, December 11 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.

Saturday, December 12 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.

On either day you may learn how to make a 22-inch necklace/lei ($300 for Museum members, $310 nonmembers) or pair of earrings ($85 members, $95 nonmembers), in the single crown flower (pua kalaunu) style, using your choice of off-white (keokeo) or yellow (lenalena) momi shells. Choose your colors when making your reservation! You may, of course, create more than one piece, as long as you sign up for specific pieces in advance.

Space is limited to 24 persons per day; only people who have registered can be permitted in the classroom.

***Reservations must be made, pieces and colors specified, and the workshop fee(s) paid by Friday, December 4, to ensure your place and the availability of shells.***

Learn to create these treasures of Ni`ihau—and elegant Christmas gifts—from a master! For more information, please call 935-5021 ext. 101 or stop by the Museum’s Admissions desk.
