One of my new favorites in the Don Quiote Collection by Belle Roussel is this set she calls, 'Glass Giants'.
"Just then they came in sight of thirty or forty windmills that rise from that plain. And no sooner did Don Quixote see them that he said to his squire, "Fortune is guiding our affairs better than we ourselves could have wished. Do you see over yonder, friend Sancho, thirty or forty hulking giants? I intend to do battle with them and slay them. With their spoils we shall begin to be rich for this is a righteous war and the removal of so foul a brood from off the face of the earth is a service God will bless."
"What giants?" asked Sancho Panza.
"Those you see over there," replied his master, "with their long arms. Some of them have arms well nigh two leagues in length."
"Take care, sir," cried Sancho. "Those over there are not giants but windmills. Those things that seem to be their arms are sails which, when they are whirled around by the wind, turn the millstone."
Clustered chunks of multi colored gems and crystals swirl up the bracelets on both arms. Detail in the base design of the bracelet reflects the progressive styling image Belle sought after in considering the creation of this collection. Thoughtful care went into every piece of this collection and this (the Glass Giants bracelet) is a perfect example. The bracelets can be used seperately to style up anything from an evening gown to a edgy avant garde look. Functionality partnered with exquisite design is found in each piece of this, the Don Quixote Collection.
The pièce de résistance of Glass Giants if found in this breathtaking collar/crown headpiece and blindfold. The blindfold echo's the bracelets. Chunks of multi-colored gems lavishly cover the highly textured blindfold affording the perfect blend to this entire set. The collar and headpiece are simply stunning work in brushed platinum and sculpted clear crystal stems that sweep to surround the entire head. Belle Roussel has done it again and is it any wonder why she is known by 3 names? 1. Belle Roussel, 2. the hardest working woman in SL, 3. The best jewelry designer in SL. I invite you to experience it for yourself and see why I beleive that Chop Zuey Couture Jewelry is Second Life's BEST.
