My regal self has been adorn by the wearing of this sacred and magnificent Dolphin Pearl Necklace, my lover has risked legions to bring me. The Dolphins were sacred to my people, the Egyptians.

Art In Hats 2014 Event Featuring…Sailing to Byzantium Fascinator by Chop Zuey


Last year, this spectacular and very talented lady, Belle Roussel, introduced her Watermelon Fascinator, at the phenomenal, ground breaking, first ever,  Art in Hats Event! Belle, being the fabulous designer she is, did not disappoint, ( like she could ever!!!), with this year’s exquisite presentation of her “Sailing to Byzantium Fascinator“! Belle drew her inspiration, from her love of the poem, of the same name, Sailing to Byzantium, by William Butler Yeats, thus giving us her wearable love and joy, personified, in the Sailing to Byzantium Fascinator.  Here is the poem that launch the fascinator of dreams…

That is no country for old men. The young
In one another’s arms, birds in the trees
—Those dying generations—at their song,
The salmon-falls, the mackerel-crowded seas,
Fish, flesh, or fowl commend all summer long
Whatever is begotten, born, and dies.
Caught in that sensual music all neglect
Monuments of unaging intellect.

An aged man is but a paltry thing,
A tattered coat upon a stick, unless
Soul clap its hands and sing, and louder sing
For every tatter in its mortal dress,
Nor is there singing school but studying
Monuments of its own magnificence;
And therefore I have sailed the seas and come
To the holy city of Byzantium.

O sages standing in God’s holy fire
As in the gold mosaic of a wall,
Come from the holy fire, perne in a gyre,
And be the singing-masters of my soul.
Consume my heart away; sick with desire
And fastened to a dying animal
It knows not what it is; and gather me
Into the artifice of eternity.

Once out of nature I shall never take
My bodily form from any natural thing,
But such a form as Grecian goldsmiths make
Of hammered gold and gold enamelling
To keep a drowsy Emperor awake;
Or set upon a golden bough to sing
To lords and ladies of Byzantium
Of what is past, or passing, or to come.

This stunning fascinator, is a sail boat upon turbulent waves of Blues, Purples, and Red, with it’s gem encrusted sail of Kalahari Diamonds and Aquamarines, facing forward from the jeweled blaze of the sun, richly decorated in Garnets, Padparadscha Sapphires, Kalahari Diamonds, and inspirational words. It’s side emblazoned with “Sailing to Byzantium” and the mast topped off, with a star formed, from the Kalahari Diamond.What I get from Belle’s breathe taking work, is to celebrate life through art. Art bears witness to the past, the present, and our future! Thank you Belle, for this awe inspiring creation, which you can purchase at the awesome Art In Hats 2014 Event, which runs until July 31st!

As you can see, this beauteous sailor celebrates life by taking her plane…smiling, it’s much faster!

The Shogun’s Gift



Jade Blossom, having been deliberately captured in a raid upon her village because the beauty of this lotus flower was evident, even under the many layers of mud upon her person. She was being led away into the servitude of concubinage. Jade Blossom was singled out, by the highest ranking Samurai, in all of China, bathed, massaged with perfumed oils, and dressed as if she was an imperial consort, to be given as a gift to the Shogun! To honor the Shogun and to adorn her beauty, she was given an exquisite suite of jewels to wear, for her presentation, by the crown jeweler to the imperial family, Chop Zuey, named The Pagoda Passion. The superlative headdress, necklace, and earrings, were crafted from among the finest of the finest of rare jewels of the Burmese Sapphire, Emerald Cabachonne, and Diamond Stones set in a beautiful Gold Setting. The sheer cost of it was enough to feed her entire village for many years! This amazing and exquisite suite was a sight to behold upon Jade Blossom. She knew not what her future would hold, but she knew at this moment, wearing The Pagoda Passion Jewels, and being carried in the stunning sedan made special for her journey, that life would have some beauty and pleasure in it for her.


The phenomenally sublime Pagoda Passion Suite was created in honor of Vera Fenutzini, Miss Virtual World China 2014, by the extraordinary, very talented Belle Roussel of Chop Zuey Couture

Just Give Them Pink and White Padparadscha Sapphires and Diamonds, Ma chère!

The Duke couldn’t believe his ears when he said to his beautiful, delightful, over indulged, but emptied headed wife, who brought to him more land and riches with their marriage, “PEOPLE ARE STARVING WOMAN” he roared, that she was heard to uttered back to him, “just give them Pink and White Padparadscha Sapphires and Diamonds” ma chère as she absently continued to admired herself wearing the very stunning Majesty Necklace! It is obvious that the premier jeweler, to Kings and Queens, Chop Zuey, has paid a visit with  another superlative suite of jewels, that she could not and will not live without and would drive him to debtor’s prison to possess!  Chop Zuey was THE jeweler to only the most fashionable of courts throughout the land and could be counted on to supply only the finest creations bar second to none!

The exquisite suite that has been commissioned, designed, and created by Madame Belle Roussel that now fascinated his Duchess, consisted of The Majesty Bracelets, a amazing design mix of Brilliant Round and Teardrop stones of Padparadscha Sapphire & Diamonds, a superb Bib Dropped Necklace crafted of the best Padparadscha Sapphire & Diamonds set in Brilliant Round & Teardrop shaped stones nestled in a Platinum setting, gorgeous Padparadscha Sapphire & Diamonds Earrings, 2 sets, one a Chandelier and the other a short dangle style both in a platinum bracket, and a flawless, elegant ring in the same  magnificent Padparadscha Sapphire & Diamonds in a platinum basket setting that boasted a 3 carat Round Brilliant and Teardrop Cut stones, in the ring and on the finger band. The Majesty Jewels is aptly named, she said smiling to her servant, as she pictured herself before the King’s court wearing this most striking set! Get my dressmaker, I must have a dress to match! But before you do….move the mirror a little to the left, so I can see myself better!
The Duke, thinking to himself, she is as silly as one of her cousins, who he heard is rumored to have said “let them eat Cake!  Hmph! Grumbling to himself, must run in the family, as he shakes his head  and orders payment and a raise in taxes!
The Majesty Suite was made in honor of Averil, Miss Virtual World USA 2014.
