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.

~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.

~flirt~ easyfit system

All new releases from now on (unless the feedback is negative of course) will include the new ~flirt~ Easyfit System and as some explanation is needed I thought I might throw in some gemeral tips for fitting jewellery to your avatar.  If this is helpful please let me know and I’ll do more of this sort of thing.  But first… Easyfit.

What IS ~flirt~ Easyfit?

Simply put, it’s merely a semi-transparent sphere attached to your jewellery that can:

  • Help you line up the jewellery correctly on your avatar
  • Make finding attached jewellery embedded inside your avatar a breeze – no more needing to cam inside!
  • Be made invisible when not needed
  • Be resized to your preference

Easyfit came about as Lorrie (~flirt~ CSR) and I were talking about how difficult it can be to fit, in particular, ~flirt~ two part necklaces.  Due to the huge variations in avatar size a complaint we kept hearing was that Part 2 of the necklace was hidden inside the chest on attachment. One option was to sell the jewellery attached further out from the body, but then *everyone* would need to re-position it rather than just those.. well, more well-endowed in the chest department 😉 So Easyfit was born. A prim large enough to be at least partially visible outside the avatar mesh, but able to be hidden.

Whilst this system is perhaps most helpful for positioning two-part necklaces and body piercings, as all ~flirt~ jewellery is built and supplied at it’s smallest setting (as minimum size is the limiting factor in SL builds) we have included it with all pieces.  The Easyfit prim is textured with the central axes marked in familiar colours, aiding alignment with whichever body part it is being fitted to.

How do I use ~flirt~ Easyfit?

Before You Start

  1. Make a copy of all pieces of your jewellery PRIOR to making any adjustments.  If the worst comes to the worst you will be able to delete and start again.  I would also suggest storing a copy somewhere safe (inside a storage prim in-world) in case of inventory loss.
  2. USE A POSE STAND. Seriously guys, you can’t make fine adjustments to any attachment whilst your avatar is flailing around being moved by your multi-stand AO. I know, you look like a dork when on a pose stand, but better five minutes doing that than walking around looking like a dork with your earrings poking out of your neck! Besides, it makes the whole debacle so much easier.  Heck, if professional builders need to do it then you do too!
ALWAYS Use A Pose Stand

ALWAYS Use A Pose Stand

Rather than cluttering up your inventory with countless posestands I have started embedding one in the notecard that comes with your jewellery (click the object icon and choose “copy to inventory”). If you still can’t find one, pick one up for free from the store, or from XStreetSL.

~flirt~ Wedding Ring Collection

Stunning high quality rings are something every bride and groom demands in real life, so why not in Second Life?  ~flirt~ fine prim jewellery is able to offer unique engagement and wedding rings of a quality hard to find elsewhere on the grid and customised to your individual taste without a “custom build” price tag.

Heavenly_Rings_Vendor_Poster_512

::Overview::

* Combine any ~flirt~ engagement ring with any* ~flirt~ wedding band to include a hide/reveal script allowing the band to only show at the time of your choosing.
* Your choice of gem(s) and/or metal(s) (maximum of 12 of each texture can be included).

* Add engraving and/or custom message on click.
* Certain modifications to the ring design may be possible upon agreement
* Automated delivery of engagement ring on proposal acceptance  available.with your choice of ring box
* Wide choice of ring boxes available, including animated “proposal” ring boxes (on arrangement).
* Premium fitting service to the individual avatar shapes
* Personalised customer service by the ~flirt~ owner and designer herself
* Advice on wedding jewellery with an option for additional customisation (extra)
* Customised service without a customised price tag

::The Ring Of Your Dreams::

The ~flirt~ Wedding Package allows you to choose from the whole range of ~flirt~ engagement rings and ~flirt~ wedding bands* and combine those of your choice so both rings may be worn on the ring finger using a single attachment. Additionally, the ~flirt~ multiscript allows for the wedding band part of the combination to be hidden until the time of your choosing, such as at your Wedding Ceremony, then revealed with a simple click.

Additionally, your rings may be modified according to your tastes from a wide range of gemstones and precious metals, including up to twelve of each with texture-change scripting. In Second Life the world is our oyster, so why not match your wedding ring to your favourite  outfit during the day, then change  theme for your night out!  Further customisation with engraving and/or custom message on click, and minor structural changes are possible. Please discuss your requirements with Skinkie.

*Please note, due to limits on the number of prims which may be linked, with certain ring combinations some minor modification of design may be required . These will not affect the aesthetic of the rings unduly and full payment will not be taken prior to your approval of the finished piece.

::Perfect Fit Guaranteed:::

Whilst all ~flirt~ jewellery comes fitted with a “re-size on touch” option, the ~flirt~ Wedding Service offers inclusive and individual fitting of your jewellery to your specific body shape (shape must be transferable). If your shape is “no transfer” rings will be made to the hand size you request.Rigby_Wedding_Package_Poster_1024

::Presentation Is Everything::

Every groom imagines how he will propose to his love, planning it in detail, wishing everything to be perfect. Now ~flirt~ can help make your dreams come true with our automated ring delivery system.

Beautifully packaged in the ring box of your choice, when the right moment comes simply wearing the box will animate your avatar to propose, then listen for your future bride’s response.  Once she accepts your ring will be immediately delivered directly to her – no need to fumble in your inventory at that precious moment when your eyes just wish to be on her.

Should you wish to simply have the ring delivered, it will be presented in a box of your choice with any message you wish to add, and delivered at a time of your choosing.

For total peace of mind, should anything go wrong, during delivery or subsequently, as the ring has “copy, no transfer” permissions we will replace it  without question. Please note, ~flirt~ is unable to provide any jewellery with transfer permissions except in very exceptional circumstances.

::Personalised Customer Service::

All ~flirt~ Wedding Package customers receive the highest standard of customer service from the ~flirt~ team, with direct access to our Customer Service Representatives as well as ~flirt~ Owner/Designer, Skinkie Winkler, in-world and via email.  This service doesn’t end on delivery of your rings. You will be automatically sent any updates if/when we make updates to the ~flirt~ scripts, and we will always be on hand should anything unexpected go wrong at any time in the future.

Subscribers to this service will also receive preferential rates for customisation of their wedding jewellery, ensuring the bride and groom look perfect for their special day.

::Superior Low ARC Technology::

With ~flirt~’s reputation for breathtaking unique designs and high quality build technique you can be assured that your high-prim jewellery won’t lag you down. Avatar Rendering Cost of each piece is kept to an absolute minimum (well under 100 for many designs) whilst maintaining aesthetic beauty. No bling scripts are used in ~flirt~ jewellery.

~flirt~ Goes Goth? You’re Kidding… Right??

With the future of the Interactions line uncertain, the Full Circle line rises like a phoenix to shine brightly for all to see. This very special set comes with all sorts of amazing options – you are sure to become enamored of ~flirt~ fine jewelry.

I was amazed at the new textures that Skinkie Winkler, owner and designer of ~flirt~ fine jewelry, had come up with. I had always thought that her textures were top notch, then she came up with these new beauties and knocked my socks off! The sparkle and depth of these gemstone textures will leave you awed and amazed. But wait! There’s more!! She’s also updated the metal textures. And – OMG – there’s pewter!

I had been looking for something to wear at a Goth photo shoot I was involved in. I had decided to wear an outfit from Latex Station – DevilJack in black, designed by Chill3 Mills, but had been despairing over what jewelry to pair with it. I thought at first, no, ~flirt~ jewelry would be too dressy for this. But no! These great new metals allow me options I never had before. I decided to wear Full Circle, and with the assistance of a very user friendly texture script with pop up menus, I chose Pewter metal and Amethyst gemstones. Purrrfect!

This amazing set will become available for purchase when the new Main store opens in Rigby. Right now, we have a target date for the opening of July 11th. The set will be available with all sorts of options, to include an All Color set with all the new metals and all the new gemstones.

What I’m wearing:

Skin::Leather N Latex – Gothica Skin

Shape:: My own

Eyes:: Earthstones – Moss Agate

Hair:: Devient Kitties – Suspiria in black

Dress:: Latex Station – DevilJack in black

And of course, I’m also wearing beautiful ~flirt~ jewelry..  Full Circle in Peweter and Amethyst.
