The Artwork   

Three-hundred pieces of precisely sliced paper flowers, vines and leaves cascade down to form Green Piece, veteran printmaker Allyn Bromley’s beautiful, 3-D nod to nature, currently on display as part of the Honolulu Museum of Art’s Natural Unnatural Supernatural contemporary art installation. To create the stunning assemblage, Bromley took an X-acto knife to screenprinted recycled paper and painstakingly removed the white space, leaving behind the prints.

Exhibit runs through November, 900 S. Beretania St., 532-8700.
 

The Dress   

Cut a trim figure in Tiare Hawaii’s cage-back Echo Beach dress. A snippet from North Shore designer Jane Hoskin’s new Dream Catchers collection, the airy, rayon voile frock flashes just enough skin for a look that’s equal parts sexy and sweet.

Available at San Lorenzo Hawaii, Moana Surfrider, 922-0111.
 

The Extras   

Add edge with boldly cropped gold jewelry. Misa Jewelry Crystalline Web 14K vermeil ring, $245, Riches Kahala, Kahala Mall, 737-3303

Beso Beso Collision 18K gold-plated cuff, $160, Odette New York Ojos recycled-brass cuff, $160, and Quatro Ojos bangle, $191, and Serpent Cuff, $160, Fighting Eel, 1133 Bethel St., 738-9300.
