December blog roundup

Skinkie and myself are absolutely amazed about the love the blogs showed for ~flirt~ during December. Naturally, the nsowflake-inspired Esprit de Neige got a lot of attention, for example from Nissa Nightfire:

Esprit-de-Neige-by-Flirt

I can’t do justice here to the amazing non-bling sparkle of these gems. You have to see them in-world to appreciate the beauty of a twinkling snowflake. Fortunately — you can do that! Skinkie offers free demos in her store. And, as with all her jewelry, this set is easy to resize, and has a low ARC.

Freyja Nemeth combined Esprit de Neige with a gown from SF Designs and managed yet again a stunning combination:

The most striking feature of this jewellery is perhaps the delicacy of the prims, which really echoes the frail beauty of a snowflake. This is further emphasized by the texturing, which does a great job of getting across the feel and appearance of cold, crystalline snow. The earrings, in particular, are very lovely.

Dorothy “Dot” Willis is especially impressed by the traditional primwork of the choker:

Many unique snowflakes comprise each piece and I love the snowflake design as it’s very pretty and, it’s winter after all. I especially like the choker and the bracelet, and wow, i just looked at how many prims the choker has – 240!

My friend Laleeta Xue mentioned the ~flirt~ gift for the Peace on Earth hunt on her collaborative blog “Baking Cupcakes“:

This set looks so delicate, I simply adore it! While there have a look around at the new releases, I personally bought the new Bloom Ring. It never leaves my hand anymore!

And finally we know what Willis is talking about (clever pun, eh?) – Willow Zander showed her love not only for Esprit de Neige but also for the Bloom ring series:

I absolutely love this Choker, it comes with 2 options, glow and non glow and with 2 body attachment places too, so no more fiddling about effing it all up. […]It’s an adorable mesh of snowflake type prims and exquisite workmanship and I for one am happy I have a copy!

The Bloom rings also got reviewed by wonderful Alicia Chenaux:

Review - ~flirt~ Bloom rings

Something that I know a lot of partnered women will love is that rings for the right and left hands have been included, so there won’t be any fussing about having a partnership ring knocked off, or having to reattach to the other hand and move around. Let’s face it, sometimes you just don’t have time to do that! There is a resizer script included as well, which is a feature I love in prim jewelry since often the prims are too tiny to be reduced with a plain Stretch.

The Bloom ring in Onyx was also seen on one of Cajsa Lilliehook’s wonderful outfit combinations.

A big ~flirt~ Amythyst in Platinum Tiffany Ring pulls in another dash of purple to round out the look. Having fun with a dash of colour makes me oh so very happy.

Achariya Rezak chose the Hearts & Diamonds choker to complete one of her “Dress me up” challenges:

Second, and contrasting with the toughness of the hat, is this choker from ~flirt~. I really like the quality and color-changing ability of the choker, too.

And finally one of the Wedding bands was featured on one of Second Life’s best known male fashion blogs – SL Men – by fashion blogger icon Ben Vanguard.

A warm thank you for all those wonderful reviews!

Esprit de Neige jewellery line released

The Esprit de Neige (Spirit of Snow) jewellery was created by Skinkie Winkler for the Peace on Earth hunt in December 2008. The special hunt gift is available until December 31 in the ~flirt~ mainstore:

Esprit De Neige comprises many tiny snowflakes formed from the inner core of twisted and tortured prims. Within the entire set there are no two snowflakes the same, each one is unque, individual, beautiful in it’s own right, moreso when joined with others in structured symbiosis. Nature reflecting human nature? Human nature reflecting nature?

Today, the full range of Esprit de Neige is released, adding a bracelet, a choker, earrings and a ring. All are build with hundreds of regular, tiny tortured prims. The items are available with or without subtle glow effects and look different at any given time depending on the athmospheric settings in your viewer.

“Esprit de Neige” male and female gift for the “Peace on Earth” hunt

The Esprit De Neige (Spirit of Snow) jewellery range by ~flirt~ is based on a concept by Skinkie Winkler. Whilst planning her gift for the “Peace on Earth Hunt 2008” she was mulling over the theme, goodwill in a multicultural world. Wanting to represent “beauty in diversity”, one morning when awaking to find her home sim covered in snow, Skinkie was reminded how each and every snowflake is unique, no two are alike, yet they act together to form great beauty.

Esprit De Neige comprises many tiny snowflakes formed from the inner core of twisted and tortured prims. Within the entire set there are no two snowflakes the same, each one is unque, individual, beautiful in it’s own right, moreso when joined with others in structured symbiosis. Nature reflecting human nature? Human nature reflecting nature?

This special set of pendant and earrings is ~flirt~’s gift to you this holiday season. Merry Christmas to you and the world around you.
