Let your Beauty Bloom

December, the Northern hemisphere has cold and dark nights. Snow, sleet, rain. Scarves and coats. And yet summer was just around the corner. Memories of warm nights, meetings with friends, taking a Latte Macchiato on the plaza. Take back that summer spirit with the Bloom rings by ~flirt~:

  • Twelve crystal textures
  • Six metal textures
  • Resize script
  • Multi texture change

Available in the ~flirt~ mainstore, Journey (next to the TULI mainstore) and Thistledown.

Bloom comes in five stone colours, denoting the central petals – Red Jasper, Yellow Jasper, Turquoise, Black Onyx and Pearl. Although these stones cannot be changed, the outer petal crystal and the metal comes with a variety of texture options which can be selected by simply clicking on your jewellery.

~flirt~ reviews October / November 2008

Over the past – ahem – “weeks” we got some wonderful reviews of the ~flirt~ jewellery again. A surprisingly large number of fashion blogger combine the creations with lingerie, thus underlining the subtle erotic impression of the pieces.

SL-AnaLutetia-reviews1229-blogSL supermodel Ana Lutetia, who normally does not review jewellery on its own, dedicated a whole post with wonderful photographies to the sensual lingerie by Ornamental Boudoir combined with the whole range of ~flirt~ creations, including the Tiffany Range, Hearts & Diamonds, Fragile, Pearls of Wisdom and the Interactions range. In Ana’s own words:

“Skinkie really did an amazing job creating the pieces and the textures are distinctive.”

Nissa Nightfire posted a wonderful picture, suggesting that the Tiffany Ruby set is perfect for your Holiday wardrobe:

This beautiful set is from ~flirt~ and features about a gazillion tiny prims, tortured into brilliant gems. […] You can’t go wrong with these jewels in your holiday wardrobe.

Efemera Bisiani of “Efemeral Style” uses the newly released Hearts & Diamonds to enhance a more formal outfit.

This really is the sort of “fine” jewelry you expect to find in up-to-date high-end stores, the traditional gentle glimmer of diamonds set against highly polished metalwork, or smoothly shaped gemstones.

Resourceful Gabby Panacek of “Couture Conundrum” has reviewed our items before, but grew especially fond of the new Hearts & Diamonds set:

“Just one more note about ~flirt~ jewelry. I don’t know about you, but often I use jewelry to add a little “shine” to my wardrobe. The challenge, though, is often in finding the little bit of shine and glitz you want without the dreaded bling. Skinkie has solved this challenge for me. Her designs sparkle without being the least bit blinding or ostentatious, and they are so meticulously designed.”

Skinkie Winkler creates the Calla anniversary gift“Baking Cupcakes” author Laleeta Xue praised the free gift for Calla’s second anniversary:

My favorite gift is this gorgeous brooch from Flirt. The brooch has a menu when you click on it that allows you to resize it and change the textures of the flowers and stems separately so you have tons of different ways to wear it!

And Reid Lorefield of “Free Finds for Men” concludes:

Skinkie Winkler of ~flirt~ has included a gift for the guys; this spectacular lily to fit on the lapel of a suit. It is stunning. I look forward to seeing what else she comes out with for men.

Thank you very much all of you, the reviews are wonderful!

P.S. If you reviewed ~flirt~ jewellery in the past and are not featured here, please let us know!

Official Release of Hearts & Diamonds (Version 2)

Back in March 2008, “Hearts & Diamonds” was the first set of jewellery Skinkie Winkler did. Now the completely redone version is back, with better metals, better stones, more variety and smarter scripts. Hearts & Diamonds version 2 contains a multi-script written specifically for ~flirt~ by Tecak Oyen. This allows you to not only resize your jewellery, but also change various texture sets.

Hearts & Diamonds is sold as either Metals, Stones, or Mixed Metal and Stone, the texture change options varying between each version.

Hearts & Diamonds can both be combined with formal outfits, as well with everyday casual wear. The single jewellery items do not impose on any combination, but add a subtle high quality note to whatever you wear.

The earrings are small enough to not hijack your carefully arranged presentations, but are large enough to enhance a stylish apperance, giving you countless options of combining and mixing.

The chokers enhance a beautiful neck in an understatement way, combining the hearts with countless diamonds to present love and appreciation.



The combinations possible with the bracelets are countless. Mix stones and metals, to find the perfect match to every outfit.
