Blue Lily

 Well, it's Friday night, and I'm out with my friends for some dancing.  I have on some great new pants from my favorite Sn@tch, and I finally broke down and bought some Slink feet.  I was really having problems fitting the newer mesh items from Sn@tch and even sent a note to the designer asking for fitting tips.  I'm not sure if the sizing is now standardized or what, but suddenly they are just perfect. Yay!  As for my feet--I didn't think I'd ever buy mesh feet.  I always wear shoes in SL, so why bother, right?  Well, I should have known that eventually there would be shoes made to fit your mesh feet rather than having to match up the ones with shoes and feet combined.  These are great, and I am very happy with them.

 My jewelry is the new Lily pendant, earrings, and bracelets from ELEMENTAL JEWELRY.  Here, I am wearing the blue set, which includes 5 metals and 4 blue stones--Blue Jasper (shown here), Sodalite, Sugalite, and Blue Moonstone.  There are three more color sets--Reds (Carnelian, Ruby, Red Jasper, and Rose Quartz), Greens (Chalcedony, Tsavorite, Peridot, and Malachite), and Neutrals (Amber, Abalone, Opal, and Spiderweb Obsidian). 

 Also new from ELEMENTAL is the newest special edition jewelry set--the Bianca Necklace and Earrings in Red Jasper with texture changing metal in either gold or silver.  You can find the Bianca set @ Designer Showcase during the month of March.

Maerwyn Looks At Pixel Art

Once again, I'm behind on my posts--it seems to be the current theme.  On the bright side, I've settled into the new year and am feeling creative.  There's a new shop building in the future for ELEMENTAL, and lots of new jewelry.  I'm sporting a recent release called Maerwyn.  It looks just great with my casual wear, but I can envision it in an elven or fae setting as well.

You know what they say about all work...I took some time out to tour the Paper Observatory and felt like I'd fallen through a rabbit hole--very cool.  There are some amazing artists in SL, and it's truly is a shame that these pixels will vanish at some point without a trace.  What will be put in our art museums?  Seriously.

February is Valentines Day month, and you just have to have some hearts, right?  This month's ELEMENTAL group gift is a pretty onyx filigree heart pendant--just right for your valentine, but it can certainly be worn year round.  Pop over and pick up one for yourself--it's free for group members.  Coming soon:  Three new hunts and much more!
