THANK YOU !!!

I bet you had fun over at the RFL expo – I know I did. So many amazing designs in one place would make anyone go nutty.

Here are ~flirt~ we wanted to say thank you to everyone who bought our designs as it raised over L$43000 for RFL. You are an amazing group of people that always step up to the mark and reach way beyond anything expected –  This money will make such a difference to so many lives !

The stunning  ‘one of ‘  design  from Skinkie and SySy raised L$15100.

100% goes to RFL so a big thank you to all who made bids and congrats to the person who is now  the very proud owner of this stunning dress and jewelry set.

Mandarin Surprise

One item I really wanted as soon as I saw it was this Full Circle set – on the day I saw it was also the day I started  working at ~flirt~  – how lucky was that!

Soft and feminine,  this set is timeless in its design. Something that will never got out of fashion. The metal is colour change so you can set the mood you are after, should it be with a summer dress, a gown or with jeans and T Shirt.

Fashion Expo 2009

The Fashion Expo 2009 opens it’s doors at 9am SLT (PST) today, 8th June 2009, and runs until Sunday 14th June 2009.  Organised by the All Stars Relay For Life team, as well as showing off their regular wears, designers have been invited to get involved in fundraising for American cancer Research, the proceeds from a minimum of two items going directly to charity.

As well as the one-of-a-kind ~flirt~ Gradient Set (blogged here) which will be auctioned in aid of RFL together with the beautiful Mandarin Surprise Gown by SySy Chapman, I have made a special recolour of the soon to be released ~flirt~ Full Circle set. For now, this is only available at the Fashion Expo sim.

~flirt~ Full Circle:RFL Set

As part of the Interactions Series, this set has special significance to me.  Whilst I started out to merely update Interactions, once I began working an entirely new design, still based around the Interactions “wheel”, emerged.  For the Relay For Life set, sculpted Marquise gems of pale amethyst are set in the finest precious metals produce a delicate feminine design which changes hue dependant upon the ambient light, from lavender thro’ the palest of pinks.

The meaning behind Interactions still stands… Full Circle is merely a representation of how special relationships change subtly over time, become different but no less beautiful and perhaps more balanced.

For Sheelagh:One-Of-A-Kind ~flirt~ Gradient Set for RFL

The Fashion Expo 2009 starts this coming Monday and runs for a week (8th thro’ 14th June) with many of Second Life’s most fabulous and talented designers taking part. The main focus of the fair is to raise money for Second Life Relay For Life, with all funds going to the American Cancer Research charity.  We’ve all been touched by the devastating effects of cancer, making this a cause close to many of our hearts.  For me on a personal level, a number of people close to me have either fought or succumbed to this devastating disease, including most recently my dear friend, Sheelagh.

Sheelagh was diagnosed with breast cancer shortly before Christmas and subsequent to a total mastectomy, has this week finished her last dose of chemotherapy.  But that’s not the end of the road for her – she still has radiotherapy to undergo and further follow-up tests.  As I’ve stood with her and tried my best to support her through this I have been humbled by her determination, honesty and …she won’t mind me saying this… sheer bloody-mindedness to fight this thing.  She happens to also be my 4 year old daughter’s nursery school teacher, and has carried on working throughout, gently and compassionately educating her young charges about some of the less pleasant realities of this world, teaching them acceptance of those different to themselves as she lost her hair, laughing with them as they decked her out in an assortment of hats and scarves, showing them through the moments she couldn’t hold back her feelings any longer that it’s ok to cry.

As a friend or relative of someone with cancer it’s all too easy to feel helpless, sometimes worthless. That couldn’t be further from the truth. We can be there to give hugs, to listen, to understand, but also through events like the Fashion Expo and SLRFL, to raise money and awareness, encourage those on their journey, celebrate with those who’ve battled and won, hold hands with those who’ve lost.  So, in playing my small part, I’m pleased to be able to offer this one-of-a-kind version of the ~flirt~ Gradient Set, designed specifically for the gorgeous Mandarin Surprise Dress by SySy Chapman, to be auctioned for SLRFL.  It is dedicated to Sheelagh as a symbol of courage and hope.

~flirt~ Gradient Series:One-Of-A-Kind RFL Set in Antique Gold & Garnet

This special set of ~flirt~ jewellery has been made specifically to compliment the Mandarin Surprise Dress by SySy Designs, and will be auctioned with it, 100% of the proceeds going to Relay For Life in Second Life, 2009 which benefits American Cancer Research.

The set comprises 18 pieces of hand-crafted full prim jewellery made by Skinkie Winkler to the highest standard. Her most challenging creation to date, Skinkie started building The Gradient Series almost a year ago, spending countless hours torturing and twisting prims into place. However, dis-satisfied with initial results it stayed in the depths of her inventory until it was finally completed earlier this month.

The key piece of the series, the ~flirt~ Gradient Drop Necklace, consists of no fewer than 500 prims (over two attachment points – chest and spine) with 250 tortured tiny prim gemstones cascading across the neck base and upper chest. Made from beautiful Mandarin Garnets set in Antique Gold, this set is the perfect adornmet for SySy Designs’ Mandarin Surprise Dress.

Included in the auction are:

*~flirt~ Gradient Drop Necklace – two piece necklace
*~flirt~ Gradient Drop Earrings
*~flirt~ Gradient Necklace – with chest and spine attachment versions
*~flirt~ Gradient Earrings: Grande
*~flirt~ Gradient Earrings: Petite
*~flirt~ Gradient Wrist Cuffs – right and left included
*~flirt~ Gradient Bangles – right and left included
*~flirt~ Gradient Ring – right and left included
*~flirt~ Gradient Dress Rings – right and left included

All items (excluding earrings) are fitted with Resize on Touch and feature the new ~flirt~ Easyfit System. Simply touch your jewellery and choose “reveal” to use the Easyfit prim to perfectly align each piece to your unique avatar shape. When you are done, click again and choose “hide”. If a piece is not visible at all when you first wear it, press Ctrl+Alt+T (to highlight transparent prims) and look for the red highlighted Easyfit Prim to move the attachment out from the avatar mesh, then fit as normal. Press Ctrl+Alt+T again to toggle “show transparent” back off.

Whilst this gem/metal combination will never been available elsewhere, the full set can be purchased in a variety of colours from the Fashion Expo or the (soon to open) new ~flirt~ fine jewellery mainstore in Rigby.

Please show your support and bid as much as you are able for this and the many other auction items at the Fashion Expo 2009.

~flirt~ Bloom Series

How Does Your Garden Grow?

The first set of jewellery I ever bought in Second Life was a pretty colour-change flower set from Coconut Ice which I wore constantly.  Simple and understated, I could match (or clash) the colours to everything in my wardrobe.  The scripting however, was clunky, laggy and text-based, and my love of deleting product notecards meant I quickly forgot the channel number and colour names needed to make it work.  I suspect that this set, in part at least, was what inspired the ~flirt~ Bloom Series, although the flowers themselves evolved from one of my now regular prim-torturing sessions where I just play with tiny prims and see what happens.

Each piece of jewellery, in fact, every single of the non-changeable prims in the enitire series, is hand-painted with homemade textures – literally hundreds of hours of painstaking work – to provide five semi-precious stone varieties: Black Onyx, Jasper, Pearl, Turquoise and Yellow Jasper.  A further set, in beautiful pink Rhodochrosite, is now exclusively available in aid of RFL2009.

The metal and crystal parts of Bloom are texture change, twelve metal and twelve crystals combining to provide over 140 possible varieties! Seriously, try to find me an outfit you CAN’T match these to!  As with all ~flirt~ jewellery each piece is fitted with a “click to resize” function, and multiple attachment point versions are provided.

The ~flirt~ Bloom Series isn’t “cheap”.  It is however incredible value for money, and with ~flirt~’s high build quality and attention to detail it’s an investment every fashionista needs to make.
