The General Henry Knox Museum will host a jewelry trunk show at Montpelier Tuesday, Aug. 2 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. featuring one-of-a-kind necklaces, earrings and bracelets by Sissy Yates Designs. Admission to the trunk show is free, and the public is invited to attend.

Sissy Yates’ sophisticated signature style is inspired by her work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, her worldwide adventures and many childhood afternoons spent roaming the Hall of Gems at the Smithsonian.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the General Henry Knox Museum, located  on Route 131 at the beginning of the St. George peninsula. For more information, call the museum at 354-8062.
