Wearing For Keeps

Today’s uniform: tank top, jean skirt, slippers. And tomorrow’s and the next day’s, too. It’s a convenient everyday outfit, and as long as you don’t see the same person twice, you’re all good.

But you’ll want to wear a piece from Anje Designs’ new fall line every day of the week, not because it’s easy – though her jewels are always classic, simple and wearably trendy – but because you won’t want to part with it.

Constantly evolving, the line incorporates new beads and styles from designer Jessica Crabtree’s and her husband’s travels (they love the silver makers at Bangkok’s Chatuchak Weekend Market). www.leichic.comHer newest collection is still rooted in silver and gemstones but adds thoughtful symbols like Om signs suspended from a silver chain, double and triple circle pendants, amber cluster necklaces, a swirling ring that climbs up your finger, and hand-stamped lotus drop earrings.

And of course, she’s created twists on the design that got her business flowing – disc pendants engraved with your choice of names or words.

They just might give your trusty Hawaiian bracelet a run for its money.

Anje Designs Jewelry is available online and at Global Village , 539 Kailua Rd., Kailua, 808.262.8183
