All in the Wrist

Lei Chic Ah, summer.

You'd give anything to be lounging on the beach; icy, blended cocktail in one hand, trashy beach read in the other.

Instead, you're stuck in a freezing office, with a stack of mind-numbing reports and a cold cup of coffee.

Sun of a...

Whoa, brighten up. We've got just the thing - a.wattz's new summer bracelets, an array of fun, colorful pieces by designer, and former Bead It! instructor, Amanda Watkins.

Lei ChicHere's what you do. Take an early lunch break, make your way down to Fighting Eel, and dive into Watkin's macrame bracelets, intricately knotted with durable nylon cords in playful hues of teal, bright green and hot pink. Make a splash with adjustable friendship bracelets made of neon rainbow satin cord woven through gold chains. And cool off with delicate yet edgy faux suede wrap bracelets in purple, blue or pink with gold plated studs.

Return to the office with refreshing new arm candy.

Then, when you feel the burn of your daily grind, take a deep breath, look at your bling and think of potluck barbecues, beach volleyball matches and fruity popsicles.

Now that's totally hot.

a.wattz bracelets, $44-$66, available at Fighting Eel Downtown, 1133 Bethel St., and Fighting Eel Kailua, 629 Kailua Rd., Suite 130. Other styles available at Owens & Co., 1152 Nuuanu Ave., and Olive Boutique, 43 Kihapai St.
