Tutorial – Editing Jewelry When You Cannot See It


I love Boom’s fabulous pastel ombre backless tees at Collabor88. The come in all shades of pastel and are as fresh as springtime. Before choosing this jewelry from Bliensen & Maitai, I tried on several other options, a couple of them falling so deep into my torso they were not even visible. This made me think it might be useful to share a few tricks for dealing with that dilemma.

There are a few options, some people try to cam inside the body and select the jewelry. I find that so frustrating because sometimes I can see the prim to select and SL will not let me select it because there’s another prim in the way. I used to go to edit mode and make my shape short, raise the necklace over my head and then restore my shape again. Not my favorite options. There are easier ways to do it.


This is pretty easy to do. As you can see, the jewelry is not visible. I go to the Develop Menu and under Rendering, select Wireframe. This makes all visible. This is handy when you are trying to find your posestand under a rock or other prim as well. Once it’s selected, I can edit it. I usually use the arrows to edit, but sometimes I use the XYZ axis controls for more control of small adjustments.


Another easy option is to open your inventory window and select the option and right-click and choose Edit. Again, you can edit with the arrows or the XYZ Axis controls.


I added some tights from Tulip that I looked for on Marketplace. Speaking of Marketplace, my eyes melted when I entered tights in the search window. I have no idea why that brought up a bunch of attachable peens, but that’s marketplace for you, the library of unreliable search results. It’s lamentable that browsing is a more effective method of looking for something than search.


Could I have chosen more perfect shoes. The feather can be turned off, but the feather is perfect! I love these boots with tights. They seem designed to show off tights.


Well, after all that, I must feature this gorgeous set from Bliensen & Maitai. It’s called Suzi Q and comes in three options. This one is called Glow. The hair is from Dura and the skin is PXL Creations’ gorgeous Kate with eye shadow and lip tattoos.

    There is a FAR easier way to edit jewelery when it lands inside the body form. Just go to your inventory, right click “edit” and pull it up with the RGB arrows. No need to go into a develop menu, no need to go blind looking at the wire frame. Pish-posh…just two clicks and your done.

    Yes, that is the second method shown in this tutorial. I showed two methods, not one. I should add that the wireframe option is also useful when you are hunting for a prim that is not attached. One in a rock, floor or couch. If it’s in the ground, you can derender surface patch, but wireframe works for that and for prims stuck inside prims.
