SALISBURY — A Brazilian-born jewelry designer will be in Salisbury this weekend to show, among other things, her signature hoop earrings.

Sheila Fajl (pronounced “fah-jewel”), who lives in California, will be at Caniche, 200 S. Main St., from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. Fajl will bring her extensive collection of earrings, bracelets, necklaces, rings and more for a trunk show. The first 25 customers to spend $150 will receive a free gift from Fajl, according to Missie Alcorn and Lesleigh Drye, Caniche’s co-owners.

“The hoop earrings put her on the map,” Drye said. “That was her signature piece. We started carrying her line after someone gave my daughter Alexandra a pair for high school graduation.”

Alexandra Drye loved the earrings. So much so, that the college senior will drive five hours to attend the trunk show.

Fajl uses 14-karat gold plate over brass in her designs, as well as sterling plated over brass. She incorporates other metals such as dark graphic gunmetal, all of which has been tested by her for color and durability.

Fajl has said, “I want my jewelry to not only make a woman look special; I want her to feel special. Every time someone wearing one of my pieces receives a compliment and gets that warm glow inside, I know I’ve done my job.”

The trunk show will showcase a number of Fajl’s designs throughout the day, Drye says.

Fajl’s designs can be found in boutiques throughout the Southeast, Alcorn says.

Alcorn and Drye have developed an extensive menu of refreshments: ham biscuits, Moravian sugar cake, bloody marys and mimosas in the morning; cucumber sandwiches, pimento cheese sandwiches and chicken salad at lunchtime; and wine and cheese being served about 3 p.m.

“We’ll also be sampling Hot Ruby, a cranberry-citrus ready-to-serve cider, which you can serve with or without alcohol,” Alcorn said.

Alcorn and Drye are also gearing up for their annual open house on Dec. 1. The first 50 customers who spend at least $50 will receive a “swag bag” filled with more than $100 in products.
