I remember attending the Jewelry Fair last year and can hardly believe a whole year has gone by since then. The Jewelry Fair is open and will run through September 25th. This is one of my favorite events in SL and this year it has been designed around four elements: Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. The four sims, designed by Angelica Leiner of Angelic Designs and Roseana Pera of Pixie Paradise, are gloriously rendered and in my opinion are as photo-worthy as the jewelry.
Every year I marvel at the imaginative talent that is brought to bear on this event. A portion of the money raised at the Jewelry Fair is donated to Oxfam, and it is heartening to see the widespread embrace of this cause by the jeweler’s community. As I went through the sims for the first time, it was apparent that many designers had taken on the theme whole-heartedly and brought not only their regular designs, but also items that reflect the four Elements themes of this year’s fair. So below are some of my favorite examples from our creative jewelry designers in SL. Next to each item description is the location of the sim where the designer display is located.
