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.

JCNY

JD Hansen

This week I am so proud to be writing about one of the absolute best jewelry designers in Second Life.  I have stated before, that when I first came into Second Life, I wanted to find high quality fashion in all fields.  At first it was very hard and as all new people who come to this marvelous world, I was clueless as to where I could find all that I was looking for.  I’m still not sure how I found JCNY, but I can still remember how I felt, when I first walked into the store.

I felt as if I could not get enough of it.  The store was full of beautiful clothing, shoes, diamonds, jewels and all committed to superb craftsmanship.  I am also impressed with the professional manner in which they handle all of their customers.  I made an incorrect purchase once.  I contacted JD Hansen and she made everything right with me in absolute record time.  While this was going on, I happened to be able to talk to her just a little and she was mentioning about how long it takes to design her jewelry.  That her team sometimes work on one piece for weeks to get it just right.  That nothing is released until it is meticulous in every aspect.  I bought the Mariner World Time Zone Watch for my partner, Dolphin Robson as a gift for Christmas.  It is his favorite piece of jewelry.  When looking at it up close, it replicates a real world watch explicitly.  From a distance the quality is still discernable.  There is nothing like fine craftsmanship as far as I am concerned or anyone else for that manner.  I would also like to thank JD Hansen, for giving this absolutely breathtaking jewelry at such affordable prices.  When you think of the time and expense that has gone into developing any of her creations, it is beyond me, how the price still comes in so reasonable.

At JCNY you will also find The Vault.  Inside the vault you will find the Limited Editions.  With such exquisite designs as the Genesis and Nova Collections.  Which are pictured below.  Now these two pieces have had only 30 of each made and they have sold through half of each.  Any man wanting to give the ultimate gift to his woman, well here it is.
