Cleo Relaxes At The Lake House

 Today, I decided it was time to take a break and just relax a bit.  I've made myself this little house on the lake with a huge porch on which my friends and I can sit and chat--probably my favorite SL activity.  I'm still wearing my new D!VA hair because the soft curls are just fantastic, but a change in makeup was in order.  So, I've gone for a bit more eyeliner than usual, and I think it makes for a good look.  This inspired me to work on some jewelry with a retro twist--I'm calling it Cleo. 

The Cleo Necklace & Earrings are available in 4 color sets, each with 4 metals and 4 stones.  These photos are just a few examples of the possible combinations in each set.  Look closely, and you will see the details on the metal beads.

Drop in to ELEMENTAL JEWELRY and have a look at the huge collection of jewels!  There are always hunt gifts to be found, as well as group gifts, and there is a petite jewelry shop next door.  ELEMENTAL JEWELRY mainshop

Portia In Blue

A while back, I picked up this beautiful cornflower blue dress at ColdLogic, but I just didn't have any accessories and hair that I thought matched.  Recently, I purchased this very 1920's hair and it looks great even if the dress isn't styled after that era.  I love the soft brunette color.  The jewelry is a recent release from ELEMENTAL JEWELRY called Portia, which features a "love knot" type design with a center gemstone.  There are 4 different color sets available, and I found a stone in each set that I thought looked great with the dress.  Of course, the "Blues" set was the best match and is pictured above with a blue agate.  The "Blues" set also includes a classic blue turquoise and a darker blue jasper.

Here is one of the choices in the "Greens" set--an interesting green turquoise, which I paired with the "copper" metal.  Other stone choices include a yellow-green peridot, and a malachite.

The "Neutrals" set includes this moonstone, which has enough blue in it that it looked really nice with the blue dress.  This set also includes a black jasper (You can never get enough black!) and dark amber stone that will look lovely with your autumn styles.  Below, is the "Reds" set with a coral stone--also includes a ruby and a pink opal.
