When you were a kid, you only wore your birthstone ring when tutu came to visit. The thought of that clunky ID bracelet you got from your junior high boyfriend makes you cringe. And although you love love love your name necklace, it made you feel a bit icky when that Members Only jacket-wearing sleaze at the bar started calling you by name.
Let's just say you'd like something personalized that's a little more personal.
Like one of the pieces from jewelry designer Devin Krista. She turns unique fingerprints into wearable art, a one-of-a-kind way to remember a loved one or celebrate yourself. Made of fingerprints cast in clay then dipped in silver, each one is original, individual and all you.
Catch Krista tonight at Olive boutique in Kailua, where she'll cast fingerprints live. The rings, bracelets or necklaces are ready in a week, so you can be sporting your newest piece likety-split. Or, drag your keiki or ku’uipo along to create a permanent keepsake.
It’s a way to make a lasting impression without anyone knowing your name.
Devin Krista will be taking fingerprint casts tonight at Olive boutique, 43 Kihapai Street, from 5 to 8 p.m. Light pupus and drinks will be served. Other pieces from her jewelry line will also be on sale. See the full collection at www.devinkristajewelry.com.
