Oh look another blog post

Look at me, blogging again. Just more things I like and some of them rediscovered in my inventory (I’m supposed to be cleaning it). Awesome mesh jeans, an excellent texture top, all the other stuff. I find I really like to mix up mesh with texture clothes…also, I can never get an all mesh outfit to work for me! OH! I put all the pics I took on my flickr here.

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.

Etheria2: Painted Ladies – Collaboration & Design!!

Last year, I decided I wanted to do an event that would bring designers of different specialties together in a creative endeavor that would highlight the accessory part of the design equation. I called the event Etheria, and somehow managed to pull it off! Based on the success of the previous event, and after discussing it with some good friends, I decided that the time was ripe for another collaborative event in Second Life. I’m pleased to announce that I’ve managed to convince several designers in SL to join me! What is Etheria? Etheria is a collaborative design event, in which we ask the question, what do jewelers dream? I’ve asked a group of jewelry designers, whose work I greatly admire, to create special pieces just for Etheria. In order to make the event even more interesting, each jewelry designer then in turn asks a clothing designer that they greatly admire, to create an outfit specifically for the jewelry they’ve designed. It requires a collaborative effort on the part of both designers, to work to make the clothing and the jewelry work together! In the last Etheria, I worked with Sienia Trevellion of Lark! I’m pleased to announce that Sienia and I will once again be working together. I’m honored and happy to announce the other paired designers for this event: Caroline’s Jewelry & DCNY, Donna Flora & GizzA Creations, Lolapop! & Schadenfreude, Miao & Somnia, and finally Undefined Lilies & Whippet & Buck.

The six paired designers for this event will be working with a specific theme, which is something that we didn’t exactly do last time round. The theme is, “Painted Ladies.” What is a painted lady? In the American Old West, during the gold rush era, there was a group of men called, the ‘49ers, who swarmed the sierra nevada mountains of California in a reckless search for gold! The truth of this era is that the people who made the most money were the services that supported the gold rush, specifically, those who sold shovels and mules. In addition there was a class of women who also supported the minors, in a rather bold fashion. These woman were labeled by the the minors with names such as “ladies of the line” and “sporting women, while the cowboys dubbed them “soiled doves.” Other nicknames for these women, who were as much a part of the Old West as were the outlaws, cowboys and miners, were “scarlet ladies,” fallen angels,” “frail sisters,” “fair belles,” and “painted ladies,” among dozens of others. In short though these were women who sold their bodies for money. While these woman did indeed sell their bodies, there is a certain boldness and fascination about them, when you look at the old pictures of their dress and style. And that’s what we will focus on for the event.

The event runs from January 1 to 8, 2012. It will be located on the Amira sim, in the middle of the lagoon. I hope you can join us, please keep your eyes open for announcements of the landmarks for the event, they will become available shortly before it opens.
