April Niihau Jewelry

By popular demand, 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 August:


Friday, August 21                             10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.
Saturday, August 22                                    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) each piece combining both the helikonia and pikake styles, using your choice of off-white or yellow momi shells AND your choice of pink, red, or green kahelelani shells.   Choose your color 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 Saturday, August 15, to ensure your place and the availability of shells.


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