Good citizens, my name is Lidia Avarsch. A once Master Jeweler, and hairdresser both, I am forgoing the latter profession, to instead solely focus on jewelry.

As such, I recall the name Tresses & Treasures, and instead would like to introduce, and welcome you to my new venture;

 

                            ~ The Sterling Fibula ~

 

   For what is a leader of his or her domain, or self, without their gilt clasp to hold their robes in place?

            (Stark naked and bare to the world, that's what!)

   Such is my opinion, which I find applies the same to a deserving body without adornment.

 

In this space I'll note such things as inventory, pricing, and in depth descriptions of the wares available for purchase. 

 

Thank you for taking the time and consideration to browse what little there currently is.

             Jewelry Descriptions 

 

(Including Gems, and all possible additions for each piece)

 

 

 

 

 

This will be a running list of descriptions of each item that I can craft, with measurements, the descriptions of additions such as gems, handfuls of gems, beads, buttons, and so forth, as the way these items are added vary the shape, and overall piece in varying ways from one piece of jewelry to another.

 

This will hopefully be updated weekly, or as I can afford to add gems to test pieces. 

 

 

 

Note! As I'm attempting to gather coin for this venture, the items listed herein are for sale, the bulk of which will be put toward being able to write new descriptions each week! 

 

Note 2! Not all additions can be added to all pieces unless we have it sent to a jewelry specialist (ooc- staff to pay with storypoints), which is why I am making this list. Some items can only be set with melee paving or handfuls of gems, some items can only be set with gems, and some with nothing at all. *** Asterisks represent something that does not function all the way. Please read the included descriptions carefully

 - Handful - The area surrounding the round brilliant settings of the arm-thing have been sporadically decorated with tiny inset melee pyrites. The pyrites are clustered centrally, encrusting each setting and gradually dissipating towards the edges, lending the piece an overall dazzling appearance.

 

Arm drape -

 - Plain - A copper arm drape. It is made of a series of fine dangling copper chains which sweep from the hind of the shoulder to the fore and drape across the upper arm. It closes with a copper lobster clasp on the back of the arm that adjusts so you can tighten or loosen it for a perfect fit.

** - Bead - (Disclaimer - this function does NOT work in a way that includes the shape, and I'm unsure if it ever will. The intent was to add a bead and have the clasp take the shape of the bead itself. IE: adding a bee bead should have turned it into a 'bee/bee-shaped cloak clasp'. However, it does not function. Don't waste your materials!) If you're curious as to what it will look like with the bead though, here ya go. -
