Spinning fuses earrings and necklace

These necklaces and earrings glow, and the elements inside them spin around, giving a somewhat pulsing effect. I will probably only be offering one colour at the Jewelry Exposition (I'm leaning towards the blue, although I'm still on the fence about the metal. Probably the copper, it is more traditional), due to prim limits and all, but they are all available directly from me- just IM Allegory Malaprop if you would like some, or to see an in-world demonstration of the movement. Please let me know whether you would prefer modify/transfer/no copy, or modify/copy/no transfer. Separately, earrings and necklaces are L$50 each, or get a necklace and matching earrings for L$80. I shall figure some sort of bulk pricing for you if you are interested in full sets of colours.

Current colour selection: Metal choice of silver or copper, and element choice of blue, green, pink, red, or violet. Custom colours available on request.

Copper and blue is available in stores (La Reina, Area 51, and Le Cadre'). The rest of the choices are at OnRez.

Ring boxes

My rings come with a lot of instructions, because while you can just wear them and everything works, you can also make them work better for you particularly by doing a few things of gradually increasing complexity. The getting your hands dirty instructions are included in the rings themselves, because that's where you need to be to do those things. But you can also make it fit better just by editing it the way you normally would, in a particular way. So for that, I figured I should add it on the same level as the ring itself so people who are daunted easily would find it, since it isn't hard. This meant I needed ring boxes!

Now, I largely blame my RL friend E for this. She has a ring box collection, and the two of us ended up finding elephants and penguins and all sorts of adorable little velour boxes this one place (and she walked out with 10, I think it was). Secondly, I blame this great big peach room:
that had been in my sandbox for a couple of days. The back of the peach slid around to close it the door as well. It's gone now, but it was there when I made my first ring box:

which I still don't know what I'm going to use for, and I'm sure I'm going to change the texture (this was just a free thingie I had handy for a placeholder), but not only does it include my script and instructions, it also opens and closes on touch. Because, well, I had to. It isn't particularly of the style of the two sets that I really needed boxes for (I have other rings, but I haven't gotten the full sets together yet, and besides, Helios needed to be sent off), so after some thought, I went with these for Helios and Astraios:

Yes, they do have the rings sitting in the boxes themselves as well. Max made me stop when I started talking about making a pose to be able to hold them as well though, since really, that's the height of silliness. Also, they'd never get done.

Helios and Astraios

The first things I'm actually getting ads and such together with are for the Jewelry Exposition, since I have the impetus for it. I need to get all the little details on the scripting for the rings (they've got a script that makes educated guesses as to your hand position, and moves the ring accordingly, instead of having them just stick out like they tend to otherwise) for Helios done so I can send them off, and I also want to send Miriel the pictures for the webpage.

Helios is what I am going to contribute to the treasure hunt. It's an Art Deco sunburst design, that comes in quite a few pieces. For her, one of the aforementioned scripted rings, a bracelet, broach, hair pin, necklace, and 3 sets of earrings- one set with drops, one set with fairly small studs, and one set that has both as well as some hoops further up the ear for those who prefer to wear multiple earrings. For him, a set of cufflinks, and a more intricate ring
Astraios is a set that is quite similar to Helios, coming in the same variety of pieces (and got the ads done at the same time since they had to be similar). It is a 6 pointed star instead of the sunburst, and in silver and black instead of gold and white. Because I'm not really someone who wears gold (or white), myself. Some day I'm going to have to figure out what to price everything. I really don't know.
