Belly button rings!

Okay, so I added this to the shop recently - like, yesterday, technically... and I wanted to share. Thanks to a suggestion from Tamara Kirchnor, I created belly button rings for the Initially Yours line. The initial is scripted, so it's an easy-change, and the package includes one silver ring and one gold ring. Mod/copy/no transfer, so if you'd like to give as a gift just let me know.

I also added a belly button ring to my Charmed Logo set. I forgot to take a picture of it, but it's supercute, free, and can be found in the signature package next to the Delphinus Constellation choker. Here's the new ad (which isn't actually changed much from the old ad, it's just got added text to it).

New pieces from Charmed!

Hey all! I know it's been a loooong while since I've updated, but I actually have a couple of new pieces - and one of them is even free!

First up is another piece in my "Initially Yours" line. Now, instead of selling a package of 26 necklaces - one for every letter of the alphabet - I have one necklace with a lovely script that'll let you change the letter to whatever one you like.

My next set are the constellations of the Zodiac. I tried to relay size and distance of each star within each constellation and even have some sources to cite for my research! I was actually surprised that there are different interpretations of some of the constellations, so I tried to compromise between versions.

They are:
Navigating the Night Sky - Guilherme de Almeida
Constellation Handbook - Antonin Rukl
The Book of COnstellations - Robin Kerrod

And finally, the freebie! I discovered there was a Delphinus Constellation, and since my name is Delfina - well, I knew I just had to share something like that with everyone!



All of these pieces are available at my booth in the Jewelry Expo. Afterwards, they'll be moved to my shop in Flotsam Beach.

All of my jewelry is mod/copy/no transfer. If you would like assistance changing the color of your ribbon or changing your gold necklace to silver, please IM me in-world and I'll get you straightened out in a jiffy. I can also deliver items if you'd like to give a gift! :D

Two new pieces and a free necklace

I have been so caught up in SL (believe it or not!) stuff that I really haven't had time to make jewelry, but I finally managed to finish these two pieces.




and




The first set is the second in my "Initially Yours" line and consists of very fancy characters embedded in a tintable gem.

The second is the same style, but is another birthstone set. I used multiple jewelry calendars as my resources for both sets.

Also, I have an incentive piece: If you purchase 300L or more in Charmed jewelry until the end of May (that'd be May 31, 11:59 p.m. SLT) drop me a notecard or leave a note here and I'll send you an exclusive, limited edition Talisman necklace based off of (what was the inspiration piece) the necklace in Secret of NIMH.

Enjoy!

Chaos Beads Trois

I'm so original with the names, aren't I?

Anyway, here's my latest piece - they come slowly but surely. It's another bead set, and with more silver as requested. Necklace, earrings and bracelet.

Charmed is now open!

Well, I finally got my behind in gear and finished setting up the shop! All of my jewelry (it's a small selection as of yet) is now available in Flotsam Beach. If you're running Second Life you can click here to teleport to my store.

I also have two new jewelry pieces that I created just for this occasion!

The first is the Initially Yours necklaces. I plan to create a whole line of necklaces, I've already got my next piece planned out and ready to be started. It should hopefully be ready in a week or so, barring real life stuff.



My second piece is complimentary to my customers and was created with the help of my friend Jen Shikami! (She's so wonderful.) It's simply my logo - but it's so cute, don't you think?



Anyway, I still have a lot to learn, but I think I've made great strides so far. Enjoy, and please let me know what you think! All of my items are copy/mod, no transfer - you can tint the letters or logo or chain at will.

New shop!

Okay, so I'm going to attempt to put jewelry pieces on their own entries. This is an announcement, though, so it gets its own little slot!

I'm currently selling out of Seven's Selections, which is my friends' the Shikamis' shop, but next week I'll be opening my very own shop! I'm in the process of decorating and setting up right now, and I'm also going to try to finish a couple of pieces to get ready for the launch. I have two key pieces planned - one is actually a giveaway set that I'll have in the shop, but the other piece will be the first in a series I have planned. This piece in particular is something I've been working since I started learning how to use prims, but I just didn't finish it - for various reasons. I will definitely have it finished before I open the shop, though, especially because I need new inventory to open the shop up with - I only have three pieces now! It's a big shop, I feel the need to fill it up, so hopefully I'll finish a few more things before the doors open! (Well, actually, my shop doesn't HAVE doors, but you get the idea.)

A little bit more gushing about my shop - it's actually in a beachy sim that's owned and operated by my friends, Jen and Seven Shikami. It's (the island) based off the beach towns of New England and has an arcade, bumper cars, a wharf and the cutest residential and shopping areas. There are still lots available, commercial and residential, so make sure to ask Jen and Seven about them! They're very well-built, offer a lot of prims and are reasonably priced. In addition - no casinos or strip clubs! It's a family-friendly atmosphere with sand-castle building competitions planned and other fun stuff, so I can't wait til it opens! (Well, I can wait until my shop is done, I should say!) My shop is open on three sides and one side looks out onto the trader's wharf with its colorful tents. From my upper deck I'll get great views of the water - I'm going to put out a little seating area there, I think, just to relax in. Hopefully as I get it closer to completion I'll put a few preview pics up - I just finalized my flooring and walls yesterday! ...well, finalized for the fifth time, I guess. Anyway, I'm very excited to be a small business owner now and I'm a little scared (I'd at least like to sell enough to make rent) but I think I can do it.

Chaos Deux Set

This is my second piece using the chaos beads. Of course it will coordinate well with the other chaos bead set that I've made. I'm learning a lot about making jewelry since I started, and I'm really proud of this piece. Even my husband liked it! (But only in an artistic sense.) It was interesting making this - I had a certain vision of what I wanted, and when I tried to execute that within Second Life, it didn't quite work out the way I'd planned (it was ugly!) so I revised and reworked it and I think I came out with quite a great piece.

Chaos beads set

This is my second piece of jewelry, and I think it's going to be more indicative of other pieces that I'm going to turn out. I really like bright colors, even though I don't wear them that often, and I wanted to translate that love into the jewelry I create. So this piece, and the pieces I have planned to follow it, will be bright and funky! I plan on making a few sets out of these particular beads so that they can be mixed and matched.

My first jewelry sets!

Well, this is my jewelry blog for my foray into the world of Second Life fashion!

Now, I want to create personal pieces, and my first set is indicative of that. It's called the "Dewdrop" set and consists of a package of twelve complete sets of jewelry, which consist of a necklace and matching earrings. The reason why there are twelve? Well, they're actually birthstone sets! There's a little jewel in the leaf on the pendant and on the earrings for each month of the year. Sets are sold in either silver or gold and are moddable, copyable, but not transferrable. Available at Seven's Selections.

The below are my working ads, since I just started I'm still trying to work on my design and my logo, but I know how important it is to get the product out there! If you have any suggestions, by all means, share!
