"Dripping in Jewels" by Muse IX"Pearl Lei"

Lynda Caris, designer of Muse IX Designs jewelry, will show her latest collection, inspired by the ocean and lei of the Islands, in a trunk show at Macy’s Ala Moana, Viewpoint Department,  on Saturday, April 30,  from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Always growing and evolving with her work, Caris collects beads, findings and gemstones all around the world.
“Dripping in Jewels,” for example (see above) is woven with vermeil gold chain, aquamarine, lemon topaz biolettes and lolite nuggets, while “Pearl Lei” is fashioned with natural baroque exotic pearls. “Haute Summer Sizzle” is inspired by a woven lei. In this case, the lei is woven with 14k gold fill, the wire capturing turquoise nuggets and baroque pearls. Each piece is one-of-a-kind.
