Something curly....

...and something special for the upcoming Vintage Fair; "Nouveau Leaves". A new jewellery range that I've been working on for awhile, which is very very inspired by beautiful Art Nouveau jewellery I saw while visiting Paris's Musee des Arts Decoratifs last year. Swirly leafy designs have been bouncing about in my head, waiting to be sculpted and finally purged!

These would be made from opalescent glass and metal if it weren't for their virtual state.

A jewellery set comprised of neckpiece, earrings and bracelet...

A pair of dress rings...

A barette for your hair, which can be worn on the side or rear of the head, depending on your hairstyle. this also includes a brooch version which sits on the chest. But add it to anything you might like, of course.

And finally, a tiara...

All pieces are texture and colour changeable, with a really flexible set of options. Each set can be menu driven, but also comes with a hud. One hud will control each piece worn, to save you work. It's nigh impossible to show all the combinations possible, but I think you will have fun making your own styles to match your outfits.

These are all copiable, and modifiable, so you can save your favourites and delete scripts.

Make a set for exploring dark gothic crypts...and then one for your fairytale white wedding, and then anything imaginable in between.

The 2012 Vintage Fair will be held from Aug 3rd to Aug 29th, and all Eclectica Nouveau Leaves sets (and demos) will be exclusively available there during the event.

One Voice

If you have been following any Virtual fashion news for the last few months, you may be aware of the One Voice Fundraiser. This is to help Gala Phoenix, the talented Curio skin designer, to fight the theft of her work. Content theft happens all too often, sadly, but this case is extra insidious. The thief not only has stolen the skins of Curio (and others) but also had the gall to copyright Galas work as her own. Better bloggers than me have the story covered much more thoroughly than I'm able to. Check out this SLU thread if you are interested, or if that's too wordy (it is starting to get pretty long winded, yet has a lot of good information in there) you may find these images of interest.
This is me, barefoot and ao-less, as there are necessary limits on scripts allowed on the sim, so whip yours off before you try to tp in...but I'm still able to say yay for everyones efforts here. I have a few Eclectica items at One Voice, and in the Mainstore if you just are passing. The items below are 100% donation to the fund....
And I happily realised that all skins and hairs used in these vendor textures are from Curio. That feels nicely fitting. :)
