2009 Jewelry Fair

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.

Updated Scripting

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.

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.

Wonderful reviews

With Jewelry Expo and Glamour Expo at the same time, the ~flirt~ jewellery got a lot of exposure. I would like to share the recent reviews.

Freyja Nemeth combined both the Tiffany and the Fragile sets with some stunning red lingerie, showing the sublime sex appeal of diamonds on a female skin.

The Fragile series is quite a contrast to the classic elegance of the Tiffany series. It too is elegant, absolutely, but it is also very modern, designed to look like it is crafted from sterling silver and glass. The glass, in particular, is a very innovative look that I don’t think I have seen before on SL, and I also think the end result is quite striking. There is, I think, something architectural about it.

Phoebe Petrov of Fashionality combines the Hearts & Diamonds series with a variation of the Little Black Dress and a focus on sheer stockings.

If you haven’t been by to visit ~flirt~, I definitely recommend a visit, Skinkie Winkler’s designs are gorgeous!

~flirt~ Hearts & DiamondsDorothy Willis has reviewed ~flirt~ jewellery in the past and shows Hearts & Diamonds on a wonderful Last Call outfit.

Phoenix Chapman of “Be less stupid” was rather critical of Jewelry Expo this year. All the more reason to be proud that she liked the Tiffany Set.

I loitered in front of Flirt’s booth for quite a while, looking at the gorgeous posters with the fancy jewelry, and I couldn’t decide what I wanted for the life of me! […] My absolute favourite was the Tiffany set in Ruby, and I put it right on. […] They’re well-done and the bling is non-existent (yay!) and besides ruby, they come in several other gemstone types, so even if rubies aren’t your thing, there’s plenty else to choose from.

Thank you all for those kind and nice reviews!

We celebrate this year’s Jewelry Expo with over ten new releases. See the new Hearts & Diamonds series either in semi-precious stones, metals or a mixture of both. All versions come wth a resize and texture change script, so you can adjust them to your avatar and match them with your clothing. This is also the first time Version 2 of the Simple Interactions series is being released to the public. Version 2 features texture change scripts and new, more realistic and eye-catching gem textures, to compliment your avatar’s beauty and accessorize your look to your hearts’ content. These new releases will be shown exclusively at the Jewelry Expo and will not be available anywhere else until the Grand Reopening of the ~flirt~ mainstore.
