About the Ginny and Art McCoy Jewelry Studio

As we continue to bring in jewelry pieces for this year's Jewelry as Fashion event, it's extraordinary to think that just one year ago Hui No`eau celebrated the blessing of the new Ginny and Art McCoy Jewelry Studio. Developed over the course of five years, the project was spearheaded by devoted arts patron Arthur McCoy to honor the memory of his wife Ginny, a talented jewelry artist whose training began in New York in the mid 1950's. The gift of this state-of-the-art workspace offers an invaluable opportunity to students, teaching artists, and open studio users that until now have shared space with printers, photographers and keiki classes- persistently creating quality work in a highly challenging environment. The Jewelry as Fashion event celebrates the work of these individuals and serves to recognize the talent and generosity of Ginny, Arthur and countless others who have helped to realize this program.
Our most sincere thanks are extended to the McCoy Foundation, Barbara Gartner, Carolyn Schaefer Gray, Gage Schubert, and friends of the Hui that have so graciously supported the work of these artists. Please enjoy this sneak peek from Jewelry as Fashion 2009:
