Hidden Gem

Lei Chic You’ve never been a one-potato chip kind of girl. That box of Valentine’s day chocolates disappeared during a double episode of the Kardashians take New York (you blamed the dog). And last time you cracked open that bottle of custom-blended zin, let’s just say the phrase wine tasting is a gross understatement.

So, when you discovered a delectable jewelry line, you instantly hungered for every piece. Skimming the tiny selections available in stores left you with just one bracelet and a bad taste in your mouth. Lei Chic

Find your craving grace with Noelani Design’s new studio.

Hidden away from the busy highway on the North Shore, the bright and airy showroom displays Noelani Love’s entire jewelry collection in a space that feels like a girlfriend’s shabby chic beach house.

Browse candy-colored, semi-precious stones or mother-of-pearl earrings in displays built from thrift store frames. Branches cut from a friend’s Kaawa Farm, hold a variety of tempting necklaces with gemstones tumbling from dainty chains. Lei Chic And you can pick up designs not sold in stores, such as sleek feather pieces created from splashy orange-and-green plumes shed by a friend’s pet parrot.

Now all you have to worry about is the rush you’ll get from all your sweet buys.

Minus the calories.

Noelani Studio is located across from Sunset Beach Park, below the North Shore Wellness Retreat, 59-142 Kamehameha Hwy. Shopping is by appointment only. Call 808.389.3709.

In celebration of the opening, Noelani Designs is offering 20 percent off its classic leaf earrings. Shop online and enter code ClassicNoelani.
