The recreation of the Texas Capital Building located in Antiquity Texas is a masterful build and well worth a visit just to see it.  If you look real close you can see me standing on the front the steps.  This gives you an indication of the scale of this amazing building.

But what should make Second Life fashionistas all the more interested is what’s hidden within.  Upon arriving at the sim, walk over or teleport to the capital building and enter the main door.  Once inside, continnue straight ahead to the rotunda then turn down the east wing to find the treasure.  What you will see is finely crafted jewelry by one of the principles of Antiquity Texas, Jacon Cortes.

Most of the jewelry, which is finely crafted and very detailed, is sold in the east wing of the Texas Capital building.  Pictured above is the latest set called the Eye of Ra.  This set of red diamonds and platinum includes the necklace, earrings, bracelet and ring shown.  All the jewelryis made of individual tiny prims as all high quality jewelry is and the textures and colors are all very realistic.

:: Genesis :: Eternia Engagement Band

 When I was first asked to write for the blog, I thought I would tackle one of the issues I had the hardest time with in fashion – finding the right accessories – mainly jewelry. I first stumbled upon Ryker Beck on Flickr. Ryker’s photographs quickly stood out in both their quality and creativity. I’m always on the lookout for nice pieces of jewelry, so when I found out she had a jewelry store, called :: Genesis :: , I promptly tped over. Needless to say, I wasn’t disappointed…I got that giddy feeling we all get when we’ve hit paydirt. The first thing that struck me was that the quality workmanship and attention to detail she instills in her photographs, reflected in her jewelry making abilities as well. The second thing that struck me, other than how reasonable the prices were, was the variety – from casual to formal. I’ll be highlting a few of her items:

First off, Genesis has a NEW release this week….the Eternia Engagement Band. Its not only an engagement band, but has the wedding band as well. Two for one! It has a nifty script in it where you touch anywhere on the ring and a menu will appear. During the engagment, just choose “Hide Band.” After the weddding, you can choose “Show Band” to display the wedding band.

Have I already told you that I am taking care of Sebastiaan and Kenny’s plants in their beautiful house in Costa Rica? You’ve probably read their Alpha Male posts and noticed they have a good sense of taste, which is surely reflected in their home! Really fabulous, guys, thanks again for letting me stay here. It is bringing me in a sunny summer mood day to day…

And so does this chain from EarthStones. Abraxxa Anatine gave it to me. I like it a lot, because it can give an extra touch to many different outfits. It makes a jeans outfit with a simple white tank less standard and it can give a spring dress that sunny mood or even completely warm up a winter outfit. Or it can be simply worn with your bikini at a stylish beach. With all the colors of the stones it is not difficult to find a matching outfit!
