About Myself

Virtual and RL Jewelry Designer/Creator
“We have a saying, my people. Don’t kill if you can wound, don’t wound if you can subdue, don’t subdue if you can pacify, and don’t raise your hand at all until you’ve first extended it.” Wonder Woman grid began with an .oar file we created from Kitely. Most of the items you see were directly imported from our region Sierra Sonnet. We also had Kitely deliveries and had many deliveries in the beginning.
We also brought in content from various 3d sites such as Sketchfab, much of it was purchased. Because of this our content may not be copiable. We do have other items we found around the HG those items we give freely, so are the items I create exclusively. If however, you see questionable content please just ask, we strive to take down anything illegal and have a dmca agent.

When you arrive at Mind Odyssey, lush and beautiful landscaping surrounds you. You will see cobblestone pathways that lead off into the distance, which brings you to gate archways. When you walk through you will be teleported to little sky galleries which are just now being created. If you would like to contribute your art please contact for more details.

When I first began reviewing regions and giving interviews in opensim, my hope was to inspire others to work with me promoting all the amazing and talented people of the Metaverse. At one time we had Sunbeam Magic and her team that highlighted opensim with great articles and interviews, she is missed. A couple of weeks ago I see Thirza Ember back wanting to promote opensim again with region reviews and interviews, with her HG Safari!! She just posted a great Counter Earth interview on her website that you will enjoy reading. To learn more about Thirza Ember please read our Virtual-HG interview here

Christmastime all snowy and white, bundled up in my little cabin I think of all of you. The many friends I have made in opensim thank you for all the great times and laughter. We will be in a New Year soon, as Brad Paisley once said, "Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365-page book. Write a good one." -Brad Paisley. It can be anything we desire. I love that! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! Keep making opensim awesome!!
Last Christmas we had a Gingerbread House building contest and had an excellent time! I left the region Winter's Magic up so that we can visit the gingerbread village any time we want to. If you ever want to have a gingerbread house-building contest please just ask, I have lots of house parts of candy that I am happy to share! If free come see the cute houses!'s Magic

We all have our own reasons as to why we admire and respect Fred Beckhusen. I just added another reason too. He created the Wonder Woman avatar to be low poly and clothes are painted on. What is so awesome about her is she is perfect for HG teleporting, clothes stay on and rez fast when arriving, she is also beautiful. I love her and think I will keep her. Thank you Fred!
As a GCG Member each year I would create Region Owner rings. This year I created the ring to represent "flight" soaring endless flight. This is much thanks to @Fred Beckhusen for caring, and @Roddie Macchi for never giving up. It is going to be a great New Year!

I created "Decorating Doves" when Freda Frostbite asked me to decorate her venue one year. Doves carrying different ornaments and ribbon when placed about look as if they are doing the decorating, it is a beautiful effect. I have created a few for you to add, please create your own ideas using doves to decorate, it really is lovely. Can be found in the foyer of Monentes Jewelry Jewelry

My Reviews

Stella Polaris

When you step into Stella Polaris, Magical Dreams region you will feel as if you floated into a fairytale dream.  Soft pastels, shimmering lights, and sun rays - this is magical.  One must simply ​experience the dreamlike estate to really capture what Bink Draconia has captured. ​

The Art Factory

Thought provoking gallery. Viewing the art pieces gives you pause and a chance to reflect on thoughts we rarely explore. I love this gallery. I love how it is presented, very nice work.


This installation is a magical exploration of thought and creativity. It feels so familiar as if I have dreamt this dream. At home I am surrounded by books which I will never part with, I have ideas to make objects for my home using books, like this too. I love this Story region. Nice work!

Wolf Territories Welcome

Impeccable details here, amazing textures. When I visited the Grand Ballroom I felt as though I was visiting a RL Ballroom. I have never seen textures applied this beautifully wow, not only the selection of the textures, but also they are expertly applied, well done!!
