Hala At Me

Lei ChicUm, I think that they're… No, wait I know they must be… You know, I may have left them at…  

Click. You hang up the phone in annoyance.

Your sister borrowed your favorite pair of earrings. Without asking. Again. And now that you’re trying to collect in time for your big date, she’s weaving yet another tall tale about their whereabouts.

This time around, don’t get mad. Get weave-n. And snag yourself a few pieces from Misa Jewelry’s brand new Lauhala collection. 

Lei ChicNow based out of L.A., local designer Misa Hamamoto was inspired by a beautiful lauhala gift box sent from her friends back home. The collection mimics the traditional interlacing technique used to make lauhala, entwining hand-sculpted metal strips with thin wisps of 14K gold-fill and sterling silver chain.

Slip on the stylish Disc Ring in 14K gold vermeil and a pair of the sterling silver Chain Earrings for a sleek touch of flash. Or go for the bold with the 14K gold vermeil Statement Necklace, which looks just as gorgeous with a drapey tee and skinny jeans as it does with a little black dress.    

Now if you could only get your sis to make like a Hala tree,
and leave your jewelry box alone.  

Misa Jewelry’s new Lauaha collection is available at Riches, Kahala Mall, 4211 Waialae Ave., 808.737.3303.
