Caroline's @ Etheria

Caroline's Jewelry Fallen Jewelry Set in Black

January 1-8, 2012

This year's theme for Etheria is "Painted Ladies of the Old West." Mouse Mimistrobell and Kesseret Steeplechase have invited a few jewelers to participate in this event. The jewelers in turn invite a clothing designer to collaborate on an outfit. Most of the time the clothing is chosen first, and then a piece of jewelry is selected to go with. With this event the jewelry is chosen first, and the clothing to finish. Painted ladies of the old west were also known as fallen frails and soiled doves, among other names.

Caroline's Jewelry has chosen Anessa Stine of DCNY to collaborate with in Etheria. The jewelry consists of many chain links draping down from a choker necklace. Beads dangle from the delicate piece. Matching earrings in chandelier style compliment the necklace by consisting of many beads held together by chain links.

The clothing is called Feathered Lady. Appropriate to the them, the lower half of the outfit is made of feathers, a corset on top that is tied in the back, and long black stockings with a back seam.

You can find these in Emerald, Sapphire, Ruby, and Black.

I am leaving town before Etheria opens, but I'm sure you will get the LM from one of the other amazing designers.

(Caroline's) Gift Giving

Gift Giving

The holiday season most always involves gift giving. Caroline's Jewelry uses the E2V system, which means you can send gifts right from the vendor. Gift cards are also available for purchase. Another way to give Caroline's Jewelry is through Marketplace.

Something I have almost always made available is changing an item from copy to transfer before purchase. If you want to gift an item from Caroline's by delivering it yourself then please IM Caroline Apollo for a change! Remember the engagement rings are already transferable. See the vendor notes to make sure of permissions before purchasing any item.

(Caroline's) @ Collabor88

Caroline's for Collabor88

For December the designers in Collabor88 get to bring a prom date. I was so thrilled when Betty Doyle asked me!! The theme was totally not what I am used to making. But, I wanted to stick to it. After all, I am a guest. The theme is Winter's Edge. Haute Punk. And the colors are in the gems necklace. I think I pulled it off. What do you think?

Collabor88 for December begins on the 8th.
