I finished the makeover for my first wood necklace and now moving on to a new design.
All the textures are the same from the older necklace except now added depth with shadows and lighting. Bringing out the wicker was a challenge but I'm content with the outcome for now.

There are no sculpties in this necklace; all are tortured Second Life prims. I'm still getting acquainted with ZBrush. Applying new texture tricks to old work is kind of fun.

Just posting my progress. :)

It's almost fall and I thought I'd re-introduce my over three year old bohemian wood jewelry. Give the old girls a little face lift as well as make some new pieces. We'll see how it goes! This is what I lazily have so far on terms of visual updates on my most popular wood set back then.

If you have your eye on one of my current pieces I urge you to add them to your collection.
Caffeine money is welcomed. :)

A little hello! 

Firstly, hello everyone! It's been a while since I made anything in Second Life. I can't speak for many other content creators, artists or creative souls out there but for a long while I had lost my muse; inspiration had left me dry and my energies seem exhausted. Thankfully that era is history and I'm starting fresh. Have you ever felt this way? In what ever venue you create or are passionate about. Somehow that spark of fire has just died and it takes time for your creative soul to heal. In fact, re-igniting that creativity is the best healing mechanism.

Since Caliah Lyon and Miriel Enfield left Second Life I felt desolate and void as a virtual jeweler. Such great talents leaving for more important or alternative endeavors. I am learning continually that this life (both 1st and 2nd) is about endless growth on so many different levels. -- Plenty of content creators are strictly "business only" and remain professional and impersonal but I want to be personal and intimate. Creating/designing virtual jewelry is one of my favorite past times. -- So what's new? I have three new shell jewelry sets! Please stop by today and try them on!
