Press Release Announcing the 2010 Jewelry Fair

2010 Jewelry Fair
Press Release
Contact: Calamity Hathaway

The 2010 SL Jewelry Fair is quickly approaching and we are excited! The Fair will run from October 8th to the 17th with the theme of Beauty and the Beast, the classic fairy tale. (We are not using or allowing any Disney images or other copyrighted materials.) We have four beautifully decorated sims:

*The Forest: a winding path through trees and foliage, with gypsy wagons, tinkers' carts, cabins and straw huts featuring fantasy, ethereal and eclectic style jewelry.
*Beautiful Castle: a majestic castle and grounds with formal, fancy and traditional jewelry.
*People's Village: charming, old-world Bavarian style shops around a town square featuring casual style jewelry.
*Beast's Castle: a vast, dark castle and grounds with gothic, occult and BDSM type jewelry.

Preview Day & Bloggers’ Contest! The entire day of October 7th is set aside for bloggers to preview the Fair. And this year, there is a contest for bloggers! Bloggers will take photos and write articles about the Fair highlighting booths, events, jewelers and jewelry that catch their interest. Their blog posts will include the Fair poster with a slurl link to the Fair sims. The Jewelry Fair coordinators will vote for the top three blog posts based on the rules and criteria for the contest, and those bloggers will receive cash and prizes. The top three will also be featured on the official Jewelers of SL blog. To date, nearly 90 bloggers are signed up!

Benefiting a Good Cause! The Jewelers of SL picked Oxfam International again this year as the charity to benefit from various Fair proceeds, such as 100% of the proceeds from vendor entry fees, one-of-a-kind auctions, paid sponsors, and events. Many jewelers are putting up special vendors to share 50% of those proceeds. Oxfam is a confederation of organizations working together with partners and allies around the world to bring about lasting change to help people in poverty improve their lives. (

Above are three full perm posters and a slurl link to the Fair sims for them, please feel free to use them when posting information about the Fair. Thank you for helping us spread the news across the grid! The LM will be accessible to the public on the first day of the Fair.

See you at the Fair!
