Secrets of Gaia
Secrets of Gaia is a labor of love for me and my whimsical and naturalistic style lead to the name often using flower and leaf shapes. I am not as new as some might think I have been around in SL almost 3 years now and building jewlery for most of that time. I am also Dean and lead instructor of SLCIF&D teaching the Master Jeweler Course originally created by my mentor and sometimes muse EmCee WIdget. After taking a bit over a year off after my former business partner and I split I returned to SL with a renewed sense of joy and creativity for building. I have been frantically building new items and taking great joy in the improvements that have come along in my absence. I am right now working frantically to have my new main shop up and ready by February 1st so there may still be a bit of dust around when the hunt starts…. I take much of my inspiration from nature and build purely from the heart rather then from pictures of items. Sometimes the items come out as i originally had in mind… other times they don’t and still other times a happy accident along the way leads to a series of items that without the parting from my original idea might not have come about. I build 90% of my items ‘by hand’ with no tools to assist in line up and so forth and if you see me around the shop am often wearing one or more of my current projects around as I wear each piece for a few days tweaking it as I see things that need improvement to move better as my avatar moves about. When the shop is completed there will be 7 seas fishing, a relaxing garden to hang out in and much more. Secrets of Gaia comes from the Goddess Gaia who is “Mother Earth” the play on the idea that gemstones, metals, and other components of jewelry are truly gifts of the earth ‘the secret treasures’ I strive to build beautiful jewelry both for special occasions and for every day. My high prim items are marked with prim counts and hand rotated and fitted while my lower prim items are less prim heavy but I strive to keep them just as beautiful as if they were made of hundreds of prims. I also avoid scripting in much of my jewelry however when asked am happy to script a piece with bling, color change, texture change, and other options. I am always happy to make minor modifications such as gem or metal changes to any piece in the store.
Larger modifications and custom pieces I accept only on an as time allows basis however if I don’t have time I am more then happy to reccomend someone who does and can do just as beautiful a job on that special piece of your dreams.
