Paua, Shell Jewelry Sets

Full Necklace, Earrings and Bracelet Sets.
After I finished making Magik Set I was astounded to discover
a kind of cord I've been dying to use for some shell jewelry.
I love this kind of style. Very natural feel and all trend.
Perhaps I thought of seperating the bracelets but you can have them.
They sets are priced at $L139..
Anyway, I hope you enjoy it too!
Cheers!

EARTHTONES boutique Mainstore is moving!



Our Mainstore at Bushido Bay will be closing and moving to a new location. The palace like floor-plan was scrapped for a smaller more intimate store design carrying more of a boutique feel.

Bushido Bay permanently closes on Tuesday, October 16th


The new store will be revealed this weekend. Some interior and visual decorating is still being fine tuned. -- We also now have a mens boutique tucked in the front corner, so male customers need not wander the store frantically looking for accessories (for themselves, we still want them running around frantically looking for a gift for ther female counterparts and friends hehe)


Join our update group under Search at "EARTHTONES boutique Update Group" to find out about our latest releases on trendy and stylish jewelry, accessories and fashion!

EARTHTONES 411
The buzz at our boutique!

I've been preparing for a heavy store renovation. Re-constructing a new store layout (my current shop feels like a palace and I'm aiming strictly for a boutique feel this time), re-doing all my visual posters and presentation as well as looking at every old product either discontinuing the design to improve it for the future or simply touching it up. I want to keep releasing something nice every week, too. Overall I'm pretty swamped with projects when I'm in-world. I've been a little inactive this past summer with Second Life projects and I want to make up for it by grinding this season. Let's see how it goes.

Also, I've been paying attention to the popularity of certain products we have and I'm very excited to be working on a new collection I'm positive you will all enjoy!

Keep a look out at EARTHTONES activities by visiting our blog here regularly for updates!

You all are loved!

Lucas Lameth's lovely boy lookbook
fashion diary of a second life jeweler & fashioner



Well this is post is about 3 specific things mostly besides saving this look. Ive already worn these outfits, although this time I left out BareRose flamboyant puffs on the top and waist and only kept the hand flairs making the blouse a bit more masculine. -- What I really am excited to share about is the skin from D-Skin. Originally seen on Fashion Victims post by Stephanie Misfit I was curious about its amazing smooth detail and went into the store to try on some DEMO's. D-Skin only offers women's skins and as they are arranged numerically from D-Skin 1-8 I went down the line inspecting if I could pass any off as a boy. D-Skin 07 caught my eye with its bare makeup-less and innocent face. The eyebrows are not too thin, either and could pass simply as groomed. The eye is beautifully almond enough with just a hint of makeup and shading which I love. It would've been nice to have the skin colour modifiable to a more tanner look, but with this much detail its hard to be displeased. The price is steep at 2000L and for that price I better be wearing it for a while (or forever) and I will. Except maybe when I visit beach sims in which case I will switch to FNKY Antonio.


I'm also ecstatic to discover SiniStyle hair. I have seen passing advertisements here and there of people wearing the brand but have not paid much attention since I'm not into the grunge and gore or heavy Gothic scene. I'm wearing SiniStyle's"Petrelli" Hair in Shadow.

Also, even before I started making jewelry in Second Life Jackal Ennui's Lassitude & Ennui has been on of my top favorite jewelry stores and I'm so sad I dint see some of her most timeless pieces worn on the grid. I have been eyeing Rydra, this geometric necklace & earrings set (I'm only wearing the necklace) that's absolutely breathtaking. It was modifiable so I could fit it onto my fat neck, but you women would look stunning in this in a Last Call / Simone gown or something. I chose the rainbow colour and I love how it adds an array of colour to this otherwise colorless look. -- I flew across Nouveau to grab Miriels circlet in black to match my new necklace and boots. Paper Coutures Black Pearl Ring doesn't hurt the look either.

Lucas Lameth's lovely boy lookbook
fashion diary of a second life jeweler & fashioner


"That exquisite side lover that's usually a beautiful Mistress is instead a zealot boy.
If you break his heart he'll pierce your skull."

Well, ever since artilleri's coats have come out I have been dying to work an outfit with them. At first I bought the black one but I felt very Gothic. I couldn't really find a working colour palette for the outfit so It sits comfortably in my inventory. Today I went back and picked up the snow leopard one, too. Thinking I may pull of such a print. Sorry, Lucas Lameth, no animal prints for you! -- Alas, I donned the blood red one and it was a perfect match. I've always been a fan of deep red. Its the colour life blood, passion and all that good stuff. -- I wanted to contrast the pants with the jacket so I'm wearing Estella Chocolate Burnout Pants by Last Call Catwalk Collection, which has a feint hint of red. The boots are Comfy Boots by Shiny Things. I wish they came in a dark red colour but maybe that will take focus away from the coat, so until then, black is a sleek choice. I was excited to get Tete a Pied's new glove set. It's classy and it comes in three size variations and lots of colour choices.

My favorite find today is this beautiful hat called Cecile from Elegance Hats by Morrigan Hyun. I bumped into Celebrity Trollop earlier today at the Jewelry Expo and she was wearing it. I had to have it. Its flexi and sways dreamily. My gold brooch with a white feather is actually Caliah Lyon of MUSE's new choker although it doesn't fit my neck so today it will be my brooch (yesterday I wore it as a hairpiece). I really love her new pieces. They have an air of sophistication and quality that's rare to come by in Second Life.

My favorite find for the Jewelry Expo 2007 is Accessories by Eolande Elvehjem. She has some excellent Nouveau hair combs and other designs and I'm wearing her Peacock Hair Comb.

Lucas Lameth's lovely boy lookbook
fashion diary of a second life jeweler and fashioner
(Part 1 of 2)

First off, yay! In my meager attempt to cope with my emo moments I have consorted to shop therapy. RL and SL. Of course, my dollar is more bountiful in my Second Life. As well as cosmetic surgery and drastic hairstyle change are as easy as a click! click! click! *giggles*
Recently I've been engrossed in a trilogy called Wraeththu by Storm Constantine. I discovered the series thanks to Caliah Lyons many good graces and influence. Heck, even this fashion post is inspired by her own. -- Anyway, Wraeththu is about an alternate reality where humans evolve into a hermaphrodite like race. Most of the characters are effeminate men who carry both male and female characteristics at large. One of my favorite quotes from the book is, "We fight like men, and cry like women!". These looks featured here are inspired by the book with the recipe of masculine and feminine appeal in mind. Hope you enjoy them!


Regal Rider - Mmm. The outfit is Dressage from Last Call. It included a dark plaid jacket but I felt it was a little too dark for my tastes at the moment. The focus of this outfit really comes to the hair and hair accessories. The hair is Brenda from ETD, and its one of my favorites. Its twisted braid is hauntingly stylish. A little mysterious, a little seductive. The two hairpins are both from Miriel. I told myself one is enough and two is overdoing it but I was lying to myself. I deserved two. The earrings are black pearls from MUSE. They really set the elegance of the look worn on both ears. The belt and boots are both from Shiny Things. The boots are part of her new releases and also depicted for womens. If you re a burly guy It may be risky and maybe it will shrink your feet? Good thing she offers DEMOs. I think they are simple and sleek. I was hunting the grid for a heel-less boot and Shiny Things never disappoints! The belt is a pouch belt which I adore. I imagine myself keeping little trinkets and herbs I pick along my travels and storing them in the various pockets.


Royal Messenger - The outfit is Virginie, in Last Calls new womens Catwalk Collection. Although here is proof it makes durable male fashion. The hair is Naoko from ETD, one of the new ones she released with her new store opening. I love its Elven quality with a high forehead, braids and falling hair on both sides of the face. Accessories are delicately finished with a Geisha pin from Miriel (Can you believe they're only 15-30L?. That's like a USD dime.) and MUSE black pearl drop earrings. The heavy floral boots are from Shiny Things, to add a masculine touch to this feminine look. The beautiful sculpty cloack is from the talented Siyu Suen of Illusions.



All hair (Except Jake from Frangipani) s from ETD, All Skin is Entice David from NORA, All Eyes are Purple Eyes from Fashionably Dead (I roll like that) and all poses are from Reel Expression (formerly Reel Movement)
