It’s that time. Dark Mouse Closing.

So I guess I’ve been writing this post in my head for a while now, but it’s finally time to announce that I’ve decided to close my store, Dark Mouse Jewelry & Hair. I’ve gone back and forth on this for a long time, do I really want to give up my established brand? Well, with the advent of mesh, and the extraordinary possibilities for it, I just decided that a clean slate is best for me. I sort of decided a long time ago that if I could not produce jewelry that met my own personal standards, then I would not go forward. While I believe that I do still make a pretty good necklace, the future is mesh and I’m not there yet. At present I’m teaching myself mesh, and being a sort of thick-headed slow type ;-), it’s taking a while. I don’t know what the future holds. I may be back, and I’ll definitely be around (shopping or blogging).

Naturally I’ve marked everything at Dark Mouse down 50% off regular price. I hope you’ll stop by and pick something out that maybe you’ve wanted for a long time, but have not gotten. I will officially close on July 16, 2012. I’ll try to get my stuff marked down on Market Place as quickly as I can but for now, you have to come into the store to get the discount. Here’s a teleport link to the store.

It has been my honor and privilege to be a part of the Second Life community. I appreciate everyone who has ever purchased, worn, blogged or just simply enjoyed my jewelry. It can’t possibly be as much as I enjoyed seeing it worn. Love, hugs and peace. Mouse.

Fresh Spring for Stumblebum

Hi there friends, been a while! I’ve been on sabbatical…or something. Still working out the something. I was invited to be a part of Stumblebum, a great event, I’m very honored! It runs for roughly 2 weeks and features items designed from the same palette of colors. For Dark Mouse, I designed a necklace I call Fresh Spring, just fun wooden beads and flowers on a cord. I hope you like. It will be out from April 15 to the 3oth. The necklace and earrings are available for $149L. I also dressed up and took pretty pictures. Credits at the bottom. Use this link to teleport to the store to pickup my Stumblebum thingy!

Dark Mouse for Project Themeory!

So, yet again, Project Themeory challenges me outside my comfort zone. This time round the theme is “punk.” And so, I made a necklace of buttons, which is something that I would have worn back in the day. I hope you like and enjoy it. The necklace is called, “Sedate Me” and it’s ONLY $75L. Here’s a teleport to the store!

Why it’s just sinful…

Hello there, I am participating in the Festival of Sin and have a exclusive new release for the show! It’s the Avidita Set, a necklace, bangles and earrings set. It’s rather lush, as I was thinking ‘greed’ which is the section of the festival that you’ll find my wee shop in. I’ve put some of my other newer pieces in there too. I hope you’ll visit there are numerous designers there all with exclusive products you’ll ONLY find at the Festival! Here’s a teleport to the show. You arrive at a central TP point, and should enter the section titled, ‘Greed.’ My shop is across from a burning garbage can!

Etheria2: Painted Ladies is Open!

Etheria2 is open!

One of the things that I enjoy most about Second Life is collaboration, I like the opportunity to work with people and to explore the various ideas that come up – sometimes those that are not possible in real life are the most exciting ones of all.

After much effort on the part of many, I can honestly say that I am honored and humbled by the designers who have agreed to participate in my little shindig. I asked 5 jewelry designers to join me in a collaborative effort I like to call Etheria! And they rose magnificently to the occasion. Each jewelry agreed to create a new piece, and then to ask a clothing designer friend of theirs to design an outfit to GO WITH their piece. Frankly, I’m floored. I think that you will be too! I invite you to stop by our old riverboat bordello and check out the collaborative efforts of these fantastic jewelers & clothing designers! I want to personally thank each and everyone of them:

Kesseret Steeplechase, MIAO working with Sanura Snowpaw, Somnia

Caroline Apollo, Caroline’s Jewelry working with Anessa Stine, DCNY

Lola Heinrichs, Lolapop working with Allegory Malaprop, Schadenfreude

Mouse Mimistrobell, Dark Mouse working with Sienia Trevellion, Lark!

Liliana Barrs, Undefined Lilies working with Dakota Buck, Whippet & Buck

I am grateful and delighted by their participation! I invite you to visit their individual blogs for details on their wondrous creations, and here’s an LM to the event so you can visit and see them up close and personal yourself! Click this link to teleport directly to Etheria!

In my own personal collaboration, I worked with Sienia Trevellion of Lark. I designed my own jewelry pieces around the ‘painted ladies’ theme, and it occurred to me that a painted lady would want to draw attention to herself. So I created a necklace that is sure to draw attention! I named it, “My Lady Love, and Sienia designed a dress that would accentuate the piece. The dress is called, “Bedroom Eyes,” and our intent was that the dress could be worn to evoke the feeling of the era, but would also have a modern feel. I hope you like, here’s some pictures of the items!
