The Club features house music when the DJ's are not streaming rock and roll or whatever is requested by our guests and is located on the main floor of the House of Lords Castle. In the gallery above the dance floor is a shopping area so you can shop and dance at the same time!
The dungeons are on the lowest level accessible by stairs or teleporter. The dungeons are separated into two, one being the main play area where not so hard core toys are kept. The other area is where the harder core BDSM toys are stored, separated by a hidden wall. The artwork is on loan from Elven Enchantment Museum and Art Gallery.
On the third floor of the Castle is where the themed rooms are located. We have an Egyptian room that features a bed, throne, and guest chairs made by Exquisite Furnishings. The next room over is the Vampire room featuring the gothic artwork of Outlaw Trading Company also on loan from the Museum.
Outside of these rooms, is a cuddle nook that has contemporary gothic furniture and more vampire artwork. There are four towers on this castle that have been converted into private dance and cuddle areas.
Outside of the castle is the courtyard that seems to have a storm brewing but not quite raining on our parade, featuring 18 stalls for rent by vendors along with the new and improved home of Exquisite Furnishings. If you walk out the courtyard gates, which squeek on their rusty hinges you may observe the river of lava flowing down the mountain and into the sea. On one side is Anarchy Weapons and across the bridge is our sandbox which allows for battle and building all items are returned in five minutes, but this allows you to experiment with the new weapons you just purchased at the store or you can teleport in friends and have a battle royal.
As with many Clubs there are rules, however Master Lungu has only one: respect the collar and those who wear them and have lots of fun at the Club.

In the courtyard are where our main vendors will be located. We hope to see you at the club in the very near future!!
We will be offering a compensation package to those who are with us currently to make up for the inconvenience of having to move. IM Atlantis Jewell for information on this package.

I must expound on the prim panties. I have been unable to give my customers the option of clothing removal by rip scripts until now. The prim panties have the rip script, so that you significant other may either slip them off of you or rip them off, depending on the desire of the moment.
This silk also features a lovely bracelet and ring. The bracelet is spiral and has onyx strips across the spirals. The ring is worn on the right index finger. It too is spiral and has onyx stones on it. The onyx gemstones are set in platinum and only the bracelet has bling. The earrings are a double drop of onyx gemstones cupped by a shell of platinum, and connected with wire of platinum, these are put into your ears with a a fishhook earring hook.
The silk also features a strip of onyx stones, from the belly button down to the panties connected with a platinum wire strung through the gemstones.
The prim belt and panties are "hooked" together with a wire of platinum, however, because the prim panties have 172 prims and the prim belt has 131 prims these items could not be linked together because Linden Labs only allows us to link a maximum of 256 prim together at one time.
This boudoir silk is a lovely silk and it has three clothing removal points making it a deluxe silk and only L$500. This silk is available to purchase at the store and on the SLX.

Additionally, this silk features a ring and four-ring platinum bracelet with nanoprim Star Sapphires crossing the bracelet rings.
This is also the first time that a veil has been offered with the silk. The veil is attached to the mouth and features a platinum chain that crosses the head and at th top three Star Sapphire gemstones twinkle. The veil, skirt, and bra are the clothing removal points on this silk. In addition to the clothing described above the Star Sapphire also comes with armbands, earrings, and undies.
This silk is sold for L$500.

The silk features a hair bow, ring, earrings, as well as armbands, thigh bands, anklets, and undies. The silk is a fantastic royal purple and features Violet Sapphires for the gemstone for this outfit.

His Royal Highness Pharaoh Cyliss Revnik commissioned thrones for Him and His Queen this week and He conferred the honor on Exquisite Furnishing's Master Builder, Papo Lungu.
Mr. Lungu as in the middle of a build and set aside this project to build magnificent, majestic thrones for His Highness and His Queen.
He began by taking a chair, extending the back to be over 15 meters then he opened up his texture files and began sifting through them to decide which ones would be best for an Egyptian Pharaoh. After rejecting several ones that the interruption of the scene was questionable, Mr. Lungu found the Eye of Ra and a Blue Scarab which he chose for the Pharaoh's and His Queen's Throne respectively. He added these symbols to thee top of the thrones he added Egyptian hieroglyphs to the sides of the thrones and inlaid them with gold. On the front backs of the thrones was placed a sheet of gold, at first it was two pieces and in front of this piece was a plush back, matching the red in of the seats of the thrones, but he decided that the velvet back was not necessary to the build and removed it.
The next item built were the huge chucks of gold block underneath the thrones. He experimented with adding bling to the various gold pieces; however, the scripts did not look good. Undeterred he made specially made prims and put the bling scripts in these prims, made them invisible and added them to the points of the arm rests that curve up the back and forward, so if you stare at the thrones long enough you will see a twinkle of bling in two points on both thrones.
He added gold the under-arm rest, which is on top of the wood, he put a red velvet fabric on the seats, and back of the throne with a ribbing on the top of the back of the throne and under the arm rests. Sitting around the Pharaoh's throne are three pads for his slaves or his favorite concubines, the one directly in front of his throne can disappear so that His Highness does not have to walk over it.
Mr. Lungu asked His Highness to come to his workshop to confirm that the direction he took in the build was proper for the Pharaoh's Palace. The only addition to the build was to make His Highness's throne taller by about three additional meters. Mr. Lungu delivered the thrones to the Palace and they were installed on the Sim where they will remain a proper tribute to a Pharaoh whose build will last forever.
Recently, Her Majesty the Queen added gold inlay to the backs of both thrones. The thrones now sit in two areas of the Palace one in the area where the slaves will be auctioned and one in the main party area of the Palace in-between two statues of Anubis and the thrones will not become lost sitting between these towering statues.
The Palace of the Pharaoh is a fantastic build and will be a place of beauty to visit. They have areas where vendors can sell their goods in the slave market, a dance hall, a semi private swimming pool, a special reception area for VIPs, a promenade deck overlooking the main reception hall, and an invisible door that leads the inter-sanctum of the Pharaoh.
There are fantastic statues of the guardians of the Underworld placed in strategic spots all over the palace.
His Highness had this to say about the thrones build by Mr. Lungu: "Extend my offer to your Master as well with my complete satisfaction with his craft." The offer was to return for the grand opening in two weeks time.
This is the first commission handled by Exquisite Furnishings, however, it is my personal opinion that it will not be the last commission that Mr. Lungu will be offered.

Again, Fairy grabbed a quality clothier and we are happy to welcome him to the Jewel of Atlantis Shopping Centre.
I love Betwiched and ShadoWiccan clothing and have plenty of them in my inventory! Attention to detail and design are incredible along with the rich textures are hallmark of their designs and as a very satisfied customer, feel very fortunate to have them renting space at our Shopping Centre.
The items include clothing, boots, shoes, dresses, pants, formal wear, and much, much more!
In addition to all the above she is also the recruiter for renting our space at the Jewel of Atlantis Shopping Centre. All the people who have rented from us, is the results of her very hard work and perseverance. In her cap is Bewitched, Hendrick Snook, Christina Hammerer, Furrs and Purrs, and Butchee Underwood.
IM Fairy if you are looking to rent stall space currently we have five (5) left and they rent for L$125 per week for 50 prims.
There are different types of weapons, HUDs based weapons (that are a real pain in the neck if you are hit with them), and security systems here.
Disclaimer: The Jewel of Atlantis is not responsible for the end results if you purchase weapons from the vendors here, remember the TOS rules is what we agree to play by in Second Life so remember to take these weapons to Sims made specifically for this purpose.

At Atlantis Jewell Creations we are using both blending these methods to boost our traffic. On Sunday our traffic was 2, yesterday 835 and today it is 1638! We anticipate that by the end of the week our traffic will be well over 2,000. This is a good start for a new shopping centre!
Sunday evening I had attended my first Relay for Life organizational meeting and since I wanted to make an impression I broke out my "Royal Elven" outfit and off I went to the meeting. Monday night, I was still wearing the outfit from Sunday night and when Fairy and I were talking of vendors and who are quality clothing designers in Second Life, I absentmindedly said, "Oh, Fairs, drop a note card to ShadoWiccan and his partner Wiccan Sojourner at Bewitched...you should have the LM." I didn't give it another thought as Papi was busy building the Shopping Centre and I was busy moving floral and fauna that my landscaper, Mello Bonetto, had used for my beach home, deciding what to retain and what to return his inventory!!
Sometime, later up pops a name on my radar, Wiccan Sojourner! I was completely stunned!! I sent an instant message to Fairy and shrieked that Ms. Sojourner was at the mall! I welcomed her to the Jewel of Atlantis and said that the buildings would be built by end of the night Tuesday night!!
I replied, "Thanks, I love your clothes and own quite a few items!! As does my sister Fairy!" We chatted and Fairy teleported to the Shopping Centre and Ms. Wiccan said yes she would be interested in obtaining a vendor and offered me friendship.
Two, she and her partner ShadoWiccan were part of the very first wave of Second Life Residents and that means they came into SL when it was truly wobbly and unwieldy (trust me it still is, but much better I am sure!) and they have made our lives in SL better by creating beautiful clothing! When did they come into SL? 2004! Wow, four years old! Here I am excited that I am now 41 days from my first Rezz Day!

He helped me in the early days of my building of my Museum, and at that time gave me some lovely textures on which said: "Atlantis Jewell Creations." When he gave them to me he said, "My lovely Atlantis, go out and create." Bemused, I thanked him for the lovely textures and put them in my inventory where they would stay for over nine months.
However, recently, I have discovered how to make silks and I have been creating beautiful silks that are BDSM/Gorean collar friendly; meaning that if put on and taken off correctly the silks will never "knock" off your collar.
As a collar wearer, I know how difficult it is to dress in Second Life and depending on the outfit, you may have to forgo wearing a beautiful jacket or coat collar as they are attachments and they are either attached to your spine or chest, where your BDSM/Gorean collar is attached. Most Master's and Mistresses dislike their sub/slaves collars coming off for any reason, however this is most impossible when you are trying to guess what attachment might be attached to your chest or spine.
This dilemma and constant aggravation in regard to a "missing" collar and constant demands from my Master as to why I took off my collar, forced me to learn how to make silks, and the charge from my friend, "Go out and Create" has been realized.
At the Jewel Of Atlantis Shopping Centre, Atlantis Jewell Creations has a store that will sell silks specially made for collar wearers. One line will be for wearers who have their collars attached to their spine and the other line will be for those who wear their collars on their chests.
The line that are for chest collar wearers are being launched first as yours truly wears her collar attached to the chest. The next line of silks will be the spine collar wearers.
Atlantis Jewell Creations signature silk line are the Swirled Gemstone Silks featuring a different gemstone with complimenting silk colors and either Gold or Platinum for the breast plates, armbands, thigh and ankle bands, and earrings.
Over the last year, I have been learning to build, networking, reading, asking questions of residents who have been there and did that, successfully, I might add, and a light bulb came on this week and I am turning my old beach home in to a shopping centre.
The first and foremost is that you have to have land that either is yours, or you have the right to have commercial buildings on it and the Sim Owner's covenant supports business without too many restrictions.
Next you have to build the buildings or go into business with people who know how to build, or hire a builder. So what do you do? The high end builders who can erect a sim in one day commanding top Linden dollars and it is not logical for your first endeavor. That leaves finding a business partner. That can be tricky because I feel you have to get to know the person behind the Avie first and see if they are straight shooters. If you are fortunate enough to find someone who is and they happen to be builders ... all the better and if they aren't builders, ask around in Second Life there are builders who love mentoring and will take time to show you tricks of the trade, the more you build the better you become.
Then you have to find vendors. Again, this comes with networking. One business partner may know this person or that person and they are looking for a vending site for one reason or the other, however, you will definitely want to go out to the big merchants in Second Life and invite them to look at your property and invite them to vend with you.
Now comes the nitty gritty of business that remains the same either in Real Life or in my case Second Life, and that is paperwork, contracts must be drawn up laying out your rules and regulations regarding vendors, rent of your stalls, how many prim is available for rent, setting up payment boxes, and advertising.
As the owner of the shopping area, it is your responsibility to drive up traffic and bring visitors to your area!! How is this done? Advertising. In fact, this week should see Atlantis Jewell Creations launching a huge advertising campaign with the Edge Nightclub. Since I am a writer, I write advertorials for the Second Life Newspaper and some will be going out this week heralding a new shopping area with high quality vendors and vending stalls at a good reasonable price.
In addition to the advertising, you put your place of business in the Classified Ads and on your profiles and that of your business partner's profiles. Each business partner brings in certain qualities to the table, just as in Real Life, one person might have the Lindens to cover the endeavor, another might be fashion savvy and be brilliant in talking to vendors, and another might be a builder or have items they wish to sell!
Personally, I enjoy taking my Second Life and writing about it in Real Life, so you will find articles from almost all my blogs at http://www.ezine.com/ and you may be featured in one of those articles. (For your convenience, I have put the links to the side of my blogs.)
