April Niihau Jewelry

To honor the Merrie Monarch Festival, 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 April:


Friday, April 3                             10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.
Saturday, April 4                                    10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.


On either day you may learn how to make a 22-inch necklace/lei ($270 for Museum members, $280 nonmembers) or pair of earrings ($75 members, $85 nonmembers) in the lokelani style, using both momi lenalena shells (yellow) and your choice of pink or red 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, March 28, to ensure your place and the availability of shells.


Celebrate Merrie Monarch with these treasures of Ni`ihau!  For more information, please call 935-5021 ext. 101 or stop by the Museum’s Admissions desk.
