Humanity Calling's hand-knotted stone and crystal necklaces

Call of the Styled

Humanity Calling

Humanity. It's kind of a big deal. Vital to your well-being and sanity and all. Also, extremely essential to your wardrobe. In fact, it's calling to you right now…

Pay heed to Humanity Calling, a new line of locally made hand-knotted, mala-bead necklaces and bracelets that do double-duty, seamlessly fusing style and elegance with the healing properties of gemstones and crystals. Each one-of-a-kind piece also plays well with others – stunning focal points and eye-catching details compliment everything from posh cocktail dresses to weekend T-shirts and jeans.

We wouldn't expect anything less from designer Derek Sakamoto, who also works for one of the world's top luxury style brands (hint: it rhymes with Temporio Tarmani). He found his calling by wearing his creations on the job and having customers offer to buy them off his neck. His latest collection, Spice Road, channels the exotic with vibrant colors and unique touches: think faceted grey lace agate with blue goldstone and metal tassels or a pristine mix of ombre Czech glass, gold-plated hematite and mother-of-pearl beads.

Stop by Lily Lotus Boutique tomorrow and Sakamoto can find a piece that speaks to you. It'll be a statement you'll want to make 24/7.

Hear, hear.

Prices range from $60-$240. Save 10 percent on one piece, 15 percent on two pieces and 20 percent on three or more pieces at Humanity Calling's trunk show, tomorrow from noon-5 p.m., at Lily Lotus Boutique, 609 Kailua Rd. #102. Coming soon to Photos: Courtesy Humanity Calling.
