Created this Outworldz Dreamgrid ring with @Fred Beckhusen 's permission you can find this ring at Monentes Jewelry store too. I have it bento rigged and also Classic! Thank you Fred! continuum.outworldz.net:8002:Monentes Jewelry One note though the bento rigged avatar cost is way up there, it has to do with the data in the rigging. The classic avatar ring is much lower cost, I am wearing it and it works with my bento hands too.

Many styles to choose from, free/full perms Thank you very much for the tips I received it is much appreciated!

A beautiful Pandoran region, unlike most you have seen. Lush tropical plants, there are free plants at the landing, a nice place to unwind.

I created a bento rigged set of three bangle bracelets with two pinkie rings. Please know that because there are five pieces the avatar cost does go up so the secret is when you are adding your clothing choose wisely, shoes, hair and clothing with jewelry the cost naturally goes up. Depending what you wear is what the final avatar cost will be. Free/Full Perms

Iknimaya...beautiful Pandoran region with lush jungle. You can hear the gibbons. We placed free flowers in a box that I created using prims by torturing them into neat shapes. There are beautiful vines that curl and twist with pretty flowers. That is what you see on the log bridge. continuum.outworldz.net:8002:iknimaya
I once was told that nothing ever stays the same except change. We should be constantly changing and adapting to not only ourselves but with our friends too. If we all work each day to improve one little thing for the better, our lives will be enriched in a year, benefiting those we love as well as ourselves.

continuum.outworldz.net:8002:Monentes Jewelry

I gave it a good go but the rigging of the jewelry caused the avatar cost to go up too much. I have decided to pull some of the bento because of complaints about the avatar cost. Before rigging the jewelry is decimated until it loses it's detail, so I am decimating as much as possible. I will keep playing with it until I can get the cost down. Thank you Typhaine.Artez for taking the time to help me perfect the jewelry. It has been a battle because it is such fine details which cost huge on some pieces no matter how much I decimate, or clean up. The other issue is, when clients wear mesh shoes, hair, clothing their avatar cost is up there, then by wearing my jewelry it goes up let's say the same as a pair of shoes, but because the jewelry is usually added last, the jewelry is to blame!! It is all adding to the avatar cost. Back to the drawing board. Thank you for all the support!!

I put in an area for the Bento rigged jewelry. It is located in the foyer to your left.

continuum.outworldz.net:8002:Monentes Jewelry

Thank you FreyaJo8 for giving me inspiration. In the beginning when first learning to create jewelry I asked about rigging. It was suggested to me at the time to not rig because it gave to many issues like the necklace doesn't lay right but instead flops around unrealistically. So with that I shelved the idea of rigging and did not want the added expense of Avastar. So Freya commented that the rings float and don't lay right, so it prompted me to research again to see what is new with rigging. As it turns out there is a kit for Maitreya with mesh hands that are rigged so it is just a matter of placement of ring on model. I have MS so have a very hard time with dexterity and vision so getting it to place just right is the challenge for me but it is a new year with new goals and this is one. I will work hard at trying to get all "new" rings rigged, just please be patient with me :)

My Reviews

The Art Factory Reloaded

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.

Story

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

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!!

Belle Terre

mmm the sweet scent of cherry blossoms will greet your arrival as you wind your way along the winding path to the maze. This is a pretty region with a secluded tree house for that romantic dance. Looking forward to the Belle's performances this winter, I see too there is a masquerade ball on the calendar in December, nice work Freda!

Tessin

The details of this region is just impeccable. From the pathways, to the worn wagon wheel tracks through the meadows. I love the details here, this reminds me of the early days of SL when you venture out and discover a place where you lose track of time, a place that you find yourself wanting to return again, which I definitely will. You will love her ships :)
