HONOLULU, HAWAI‘I—Just in time for Mother’s Day, the Honolulu Museum of Art Shop presents an exclusive trunk show by Honolulu jewelry designer Fay Scherr on April 28.
Scherr invites customers to bring their own treasured bead or heirloom jewelry element to the trunk show. The designer will incorporate these personal pieces into a new, contemporary creation. Custom designs will be ready for pick-up on Tuesday, May 8, just in time for Mothers’ Day.
Customers can choose from an inventory of many different kinds of beads, to best fit their style and vision. The price of each work will depend on the elements chosen for inclusion. One-of-a-kind necklaces, bracelets and earrings will also be available for purchase.
To ensure that customers who bring in an heirloom receive individual time with Scherr, reservations are required and can be made by calling 532-8703.
Best known for her signature style of combining a wide variety of beads into stunning creations, Scherr’s bold, one-of-a-kind, versatile pieces are often asymmetrical, and always compelling. She grew up in Hawai‘i, and received a B.S. in Fashion Design and Merchandising from the University of Hawai‘i–Manoa. She began collecting beads on her many trips abroad, and was one of the original “Two Bag Ladies,” creating one-of-a-kind purses from boxes.
