To Be Fae, Or Not To Be Fae, That Is The Question

I just couldn't make up my mind in what order to put these photos.  I was really going for an elf/fairy theme to start with, but then I drifted off to the jewelry emphasis--which I suppose is appropriate for this blog.  I really like this set of jewelry, so I finally decided to move this photo to the top so you could get a good view--it's a close up shot of the new Sylvain Necklace & Earrings in gold with aquamarine stones.  There are two sets, both of which change textures to give you gold or silver, and a choice of 4 gemstones.  The aquamarine is in set #1, which also includes a green turquoise, amethyst (shown at the bottom), and a lovely coral.  Set #2 includes amber (shown in photo 2 and 3), a pretty blue abalone, gold agate, and jade.  See...I did start off with fairies and elves on my mind--even as I was building.

You can find both Sylvain sets at the ELEMENTAL JEWELRY mainshop:
And, set #2 is on sale!

Yes, I have already started making adjustments so that it will be available for petite mesh avatars.  So, patience my little friends, just a few more tweeks and it will be out next week!  Petite me is very anxious to wear this one, so I'm sure there will be blog photos!

Petite Celeste

This is a small post about some very tiny jewelry.  HeHe.  I really like chainmaille jewelry, although I imagine that the real thing might get rather heavy.  In SL, of course, weight is not an issue, so I've made this lovely set that I named after my friend Celeste.  I flew over to Fairyland to snap some pics.  I looked at several spots, but I just can't find many petite places that I think are more lovely than Fairyland.  Above, I am wearing a dress I purchased at ThatChick Petites some time ago, but I just never found a set of jewelry to match it.  I think this fits the bill.  This is the new Petite Celeste set in Dark Aurora Borealis.  It changes texture between silver and gold, and 4 different "dark" stones.  There is also a Light Aurora Borealis set, pictured below.

I'm wearing:
Jewelry:  PETITE ELEMENTAL JEWELRY--Petite Celeste Necklace & Earrings, available in Dark or Light Aurora Borealis, texture changing.  Here's a slurl to take you to the inworld shop--
Hair:  Emo-tions--Dina, naturals.  Purchased full price.
Blue Fairy:  Kastle Rock Petites--Woodland Fairy Petite, aqua.  Hunt gift.
Red Dress:  ThatChick's Petites--Morgana Gown, dark wine.  Purchased on sale.

All White And Glowy

Merry Christmas!  My day has wound down, and my belly is full of good holiday food, so I've taken some time to relax and snap some photos in SL.  This month at PurpleMoon, there is a fantastic group gift--a beautiful poufy white dress.  It has a lovely white fur stole to wear around your shoulders.  I thought it looked great with a set of jewelry I've been working on for some time--the Celeste Necklace & Earrings.  The Celeste pieces are chainmaille, so they really catch the light in interesting ways.  There are three sets from which to choose--two sets have aurora borealis stones in 4 texture changing choices.  Here you see the Light Aurora Borealis set, but there is also a Dark Aurora Borealis set and a Semi-Precious set with Turquoise, Opal, Peridot, Purple Agate, Lapis, and Red Coral stones.  There is also a special edition set in silver and black onyx.  It doesn't change textures, but it is sold as a set, so it's a really good bargain.

Here's a slurl to the ELEMENTAL JEWELRY mainshop in SL:

Hurry on over.  There is a Group Christmas Gift under the tree that will be there until the tree is taken down.  The gift is a set of texture changing holiday earrings in red, green, and gold, but they can be worn at other times of the year as well.

I'm wearing:
Jewelry:  ELEMENTAL JEWELRY--Celeste Necklace & Earrings, in light aurora borealis, texture changing.  Available in many other colors. 
Dress:  PurpleMoon--Winter Queen in Ice.  Group gift.
Hair:  Truth Hair--Enisa in gingers.  Purchased full price.
Location:  The Looking Glass.

I'm Already Tired Of Snow!

You know, it's Christmas time, so I guess I should be posting some winter scenes for the season.  But, all I need to do is look out my rl window to see the white stuff, and I do like green places the best.  So, let's just close our eyes and pretend that I've taken a trip south for my holiday vacation!  HeHe.  Besides that, winter clothes don't really offer the opportunity to show off a fabulous pendant.  I picked up this great mesh top over at ColdLogic.  I don't really like mesh dresses, but I do like mesh tops if I can find one that really fits.  You have to adjust the placement of your jewelry just a bit or it will sink into the mesh, but I think it's worth it.  Here, let me give you a close up:

This is the Astra Pendant & Earrings from ELEMENTAL JEWELRY.  The one shown above is the turquoise from the "Blues" set, silver or gold with 3 blue stone choices--it's texture changing, so no need to buy three.  There's also lapis lazuli and larimar in this one.  Below is the "Reds" set, shown with gold & coral, but also including ruby and rose quartz.  You will also find a "Greens" set with peridot, malachite, and a green turquoise, and a "Neutrals" set with moonstone, tiger eye, and slowflake obsidian.  Oh, and there's a slightly modified version available for my petite friends @ PETITE ELEMENTAL JEWELRY!

Well, I'm off to finish wrapping some gifts.  Hop on over to ELEMENTAL to have a look at some of the new, and old, designs.  You're sure to find something to add bling to your holiday!



I'm wearing:
Jewelry:  ELEMENTAL JEWELRY--Astra Pendant & Earrings, available in texture changing sets of blue, red, green, and neutrals.
Top:  ColdLogic--Breeze in coal.  Purchased on sale.
Hair:  Truth--Enisa--gingers.  Purchased full price.
Skin:  Curio--Pout 2.  Purchased full price.
Jeans:  Zaara--classic blue jeans.  Purchased full price.
Location:  My friend Tucker's house.  Sorry, he's moved.

Tessa's Traditional Holiday

Don't you think that Christmas is a time for tradition and classics?  I'm at my friend Celeste's house admiring her Christmas tree and wondering whether any of those pretty gifts are for me.  Hmm.  Should I shake the largest one, or the smallest...

I'm wearing a very festive, red dress just right for my traditional holiday color scheme, and the Victoria Necklace & Earrings from ELEMENTAL JEWELRY--a very classic design.  This jewelry comes in 4 color packs, the one above being the "Royals", which includes this vibrant red garnet and green tsavorite--perfect for my traditional holiday garb!  You can mix and match the stones--choose two colors, or go with all the same stone.  There are 4 stone choices in each pack, as well as gold and silver metal.  The other packs include "Pastels" (shown below), "Bolds", and "Neutrals".  All are available at the mainshop, as well as next door at the PETITE ELEMENTAL JEWELRY shop.

Here are slurls to pop you right over to the shops:

The Petite Princess Council Is In Session

If you drop into either ELEMENTAL or PETITE ELEMENTAL JEWELRY right now, you will find a bunch of new crowns and tiaras.  What can I say?  I've been feeling like a princess, and evidently so have my friends.  Here you see me in the purple and my friend Princess Celeste in blue, and we are both wearing the new Petite Snow Queen Tiara, which  is available in 3 color sets--Bold colors, Light colors, and Opals.  They are all three silver because, well, snowflakes aren't supposed to be gold.  You can adjust the sizing for various brands of petite mesh avatars, and you can adjust the glow, shine, and full bright to your liking.
There is also a series of golden petite tiaras--the Petite Queen of Hearts tiaras, all of which feature a sparkly faceted gem shaped like a heart.  (You couldn't guess that, right?)  Below, I'm wearing the heart tiara as well as the Jehan Necklace & Earrings in blue.

Below is the Petite Queen of Hearts tiara in pink topaz along with the new Sasha necklace & earrings.

All of these tiaras are also available in standard sizing, but you'll have to go next door to the "big" ELEMENTAL JEWELRY shop for those.  There you will also find The Queen Eleanor and King Henry crowns.  If you are into royal role play, you will want to have a look at these.  And, that's right, I did make one to fit the gentlemen!  Actually, that was the first one I made.  Surprise!
