A Pretty Pickle

Lei Chic A quick glance at the clock—gah! Your date is due to arrive in mere nanoseconds and you’re hobbling around in two different shoes with only half your hair curled.

Breathe. At least you’ve got your hot new dress on and a cute purse picked out. All that’s left really is…the jewelry? Oh crap, you totally forgot about the jewelry—a coordination effort that often requires its own separate date.

The solution to your sticky situation? Padma and Pickles jewelry.

Lei ChicDesigned by local girl Kelsey Nishi, the wear-with-anything line offers up pretty handcrafted creations in sterling silver and 14-karat gold.

Nishi started making the attention-grabbing accessories so that she could direct attention to her true passion—helping orphaned animals. The line itself is named after her own four-legged BFFS (best friends fur-ever). And every piece sold supports the medical treatment and fostering of a creature in need.

The elegant mix includes everything from chic figure-eight and teardrop-shaped wire earrings to stackable hammered metal rings and dainty necklaces strung with cascading chains and richly hued gemstones.

Just the thing to get you out of your accessories pickle looking as cool as a cucumber.

Select Padma and Pickles pieces are available at Shasa Emporium at Kahala Mall, 808.735.5122, and at Lily Lotus, 1127 12th Ave., Honolulu, 808.735.3400. For more info, or to view the entire collection visit
