I really enjoy looking at vintage jewelry.  I have to say that it's just...better.  The designs always look as though they've taken much time and thought, and yet they are simply elegant.  But, sometimes, it's the simplest designs and materials that catch your eye.  For example, have you ever noticed any of the plastic "moonglow" jewelry?  It's pretty much just simple beads, bangles, and such, and yet the gleaming colors make the jewelry special. 

I've spent a good bit of time recently toying with textures trying to duplicate that "glow" effect.  I've made simple retro beads, classic button earrings and drop earrings in one set, and a single "cuff" bracelet plus a stack of bangles in another set.  Each set is texture changing, with 3 lovely shades in each.  You can mix and match the stack of bangle bracelets--all the same color, or all mixed up.  There is a very glowy set in primary colors--blue, red, and green (above), and a set with summer shades (below).  I like them all, but my favorite is the blue in the photo above.  Pop over to ELEMENTAL and have a closer look, and don't forget to pick up the current group gift and hunt gift for a matching set of jewelry!

Titania Is Ready For Spring

 Well, it's officially spring time, and I think the weather gods are finally smiling on me.  For the past few weeks, I've been cleaning up my rl garden and watching all of the green things burst out of the earth.  The early spring flowers are already blooming for a hint of color.  This has put me in the mood for some jewelry inspired by nature, and Titania is the result.  This leaf motif jewelry can be worn with a casual outfit like the one in the photos, or it would look great in a role play setting--I'm visualizing elves and fairies. There are 4 color sets--one for each season of the year.  Above is the summer set, with bright shades of turquoise, blue, green, and red.  I've mixed up the leaf colors and stones, but you can adjust the textures so that the leaves or stones are all the same color. 

 Above is the spring time set with lighter shades of pink, green, blue, and lavender.  I found a lovely spot to relax over at the Santaurio sim.  This sim is gorgeous!  There are lots of nooks and crannies to explore and plenty of photo ops.  This little pond/garden is hidden in the center of the island, and it would be a fantastic place to hang out with friends...or a significant other.

Above is the autumn set with colors inspired by fall leaves--autumn green, gold, red, and purple.  I like those colors with the copper metal.  The winter set is not shown, but it contains the darker shades of winter--black, scarlet, teal blue, and emerald.

I'm Wearing:
