Lei Chic To my darling jewels,

As a woman of many words, I feel like lately, you've been sending all the wrong messages.

Don't get me wrong neon green bangle, you're still an attention-grabber, but you're a little loud for the office. And it's not that I don't love you layered chain necklace, but you're kind of weighing me down.

It's time to begin a new chapter in my collection, and I'm starting with found*ling jewelry.

North Carolina-based designers Betsy and Stephen Carr sift through old books, maps and fabrics, reprint them on fade-resistant paper, and encase them in recycled sterling silver. The result: delicate, vintage-inspired jewelry that will stand the test of time.

Lei ChicNote the leather wrap bracelet with a snippet from a mid-century dictionary. Skim through stackable rings and necklaces that use old children's books to spell phrases like "Oh my" or "you & me." Then chart a path around layered bracelets with colorful vintage maps.

Any of these pieces will be a novel way to express my true feelings.

Moving on never felt so write.


found*ling jewelry starts at $27.50 and is available at Cottage by the Sea in Ward Warehouse, 1050 Ala Moana Blvd. Suite 1110, (808) 591-9811, or online at found*ling's Etsy shop.
