Despite being unable to spell jewellery correctly, the team organising the 2009 Jewelry Fair have done an amazing job with the set-up and build for this year’s jewellery expo. Themed around the children’s novel “The Secret Garden” by Frances Hodgson Burnett, the fair takes you on a walk past over 120 exhibitors hidden within a high-hedged maze with no chance of getting lost other than in the glorious bling on display. This year the fair is supporting the charity Oxfam, many designers having set up exclusive items with 50% of proceeds going directly to this cause.
~flirt~ The Secret Garden Rings
I have designed a set of rings specifically for the Jewelry Fair, each one depicting a tiny “garden” of seasonal flora hidden within a beautiful solitaire diamond, set high on a latticed texture-change precious metal ring.
For the duration of the 2009 Jewelry fair all four rings are set to one third off the normal price, and additionally, 50% of the proceeds of all sales will go directly to Oxfam.
State-Of-The_Art Sculpted Gemstone Technology
The sculpted gemstones featured have been painstakingly developed by Skip Bernard of Sculptacular with extreme mathematical accuracy. ” Created using the formulars of Marcel Tolkowsky (american standard cut ) and Prof. Eppler (german cut), these diamond sculpts are of extreme precision and realistic appearance”.
Skinkie has also had the opportunity to use Skip’s developmental ray-tracing internal reflection sculpts to add a further dimension to the gems, bringing back the twinkle that sculpted diamonds hereto have missed. Using these, the highest quality sculpted gemstones available in Second Life today, together with Skinkie’s reknowned precision building and texturing skills, we believe we are offering probably the most realistic and beautiful diamond rings available on the grid.
Rings are all scripted with the newest version of the ~flirt~ Multiscript, with the familiar texture-change and resizing options, together with the ~flirt~ Easyfit System. This version also includes new features:
- Glow on/off
- Delete all scripts
There are also some bug-fixes, including eliminating cross-talk between worn items of scripted jewellery.
~flirt~ Tigerlily Hair Barrett
Exclusive to the Jewelry Expo is this gift from ~flirt~. Scripted with the newest version of the ~flirt~ multiscript, over 140 texture combinations are possible, choosing between 12 precious metals and 12 crystals. Versions pre-attached to the mouth and chin are provided, but should these not be suitable, the ~flirt~ Easyfit System will make re-positioning on a new attachment point a breeze.
The 2009 Jewelry Fair runs from today, Friday 18th September, thro until Sunday 27th September 2009.
