About Myself

Virtual and RL Jewelry - Copyrighted Designs
Virtual-HG Magazine
3HG Owner
Marianna Monentes’ virtual life began in 2007, in Second Life. Already passionate about the Arts, Mari expanded into 3D Technology-Advanced CAD Jewelry Design becoming a Creator in SL. Nominated for Avi-Choice Award in 2014-15. She enjoyed being an editor at SurfWatch magazine writing a column, Mari's Mailbag. and Owner of nAvitar - Pandoran RP for 2 years.
An SLSA Surf Judge and Competitor.

One day Mari discovered OpenSim and loved it, being able to visit friends at many different grids. Finding Ferd Frederix and Dreamgrid she learned how to create her own grid 3(H)ills (G)rid 3HG. Please contact Marianna for more information on how you can operate your own grid.
@ Most days you will find Mari creating at 3HG, stop by anytime!

"Some express concern about traffic in OpenSim, but I view my grid as my personal oasis—a private resort where visitors come to stay awhile and embark on new adventures. My hope is that they leave inspired and eager to collaborate on integrating what they've seen into their own regions and grids. This spirit of collaboration is the essence of OpenSim. What's disheartening is when individuals merely take ideas without engaging in any collaborative effort, claiming them as their own without acknowledgment." MM

One day YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook will merge. It'll be called YouTwitFace.

Being a solo-sapien sapiosexual I find the spark of attraction in the light of intellect, where minds meet and ignite a connection that transcends the physical and delves into the profound beauty of thought.

Speaking of horses, @RolandFrancis created Pegasus_Starry Fantasy horse and gave to me for Iknimaya. The color is so beautiful, I am not quite sure how he did it but it is the most beautiful horse I have ever seen, thank you Roland 🐴💗🐴

I think this has to be my favorite request by Veri. I have been thinking of her today 💗💗 Jewelry Jewelry

This is one of the first sets that I created, started with a sketch of gem placement. Making gemstone snowflakes it is all about gem placement too. Once you have the main gem placed a simple polar array at various distances achieves beautiful effects. Creating is Magic, spend more time learning all the new software out there.

@LillySparks contributions not only advanced the technology of virtual surfing but also brought people together, creating a more vibrant and cohesive community. Her work remains a testament to the power of innovation in enhancing virtual worlds and the experiences they offer. I feel my dream is finally realized, to have quality surfing in opensim is a beautiful thing but the cohesive community is just heartwarming. Seeing Hyacinth creating her new surf region gave me total goosebumps because in SL in the beginning that is how it was, everyone was creating their surf sims, creating their teams and all coming together each month for a surf comp, we can do this too! We can create our surf sims, our teams, and have fun competitions. Lag right now might be a thang to overcome if we have lots of action other than surfing on the sim, we might have to have the competitions in a stripped down sim with just the waves and boards but there is so much hope for this!! I am over the moon excited about our future! Get out there and surf everyone and thank you, @FerdFrederix, Kayaker, Hyacinth, and Lilly and team! 🏄‍♀️💕

Jewelry is a reflection of your personality, and many of the designs have been inspired by your suggestions.

I have various circlets and tiaras created at the back of the store by the wedding rings. I was asked to create these when I first started creating jewelry and have loved them ever since; these are always so fun to create and look pretty when worn. Jewelry

The Na'vi floating mountains, known as the Hallelujah Mountains, are a breathtaking sight in Pandora, held aloft by powerful magnetic fields. The journey to the top is perilous, testing the courage and skill of each Na'vi. Narrow ledges, sudden gusts of wind, and unstable rocks make the climb treacherous, and only the bravest warriors succeed, earning the honor of bonding with an ikran, the majestic mountain banshees.

Follow Nanti up the floating mountains, come test your climbing skills.
The songcord (Na'vi name: waytelem) is a mnemonic device used by Na'vi individuals as well as entire clans for recounting information, stories, and mythology. The Na'vi songcord is a beautifully intricate method of recording and honoring family history and life events within Na'vi culture. Instead of using written words or images, the Na'vi weave together a tapestry of beads, each bead symbolizing a significant moment, achievement, or relationship in one's life.

I have created a SongCord that you can add your history beads and honors to. It has feathers and the first "life" bead to get you started.

I have included Neytiri's song gesture and info, at the Iknimaya landing.
I’ve crafted this article to assist individuals eager to upload their models to Opensimulator but unsure of where to begin. This guide aims to direct you toward exceptional resources, making the process much more accessible.

One night, I dreamt I stood at the river's edge in a canyon gorge. Terraced along the cliffs were abundant cherry trees, their branches cascading down towards the water. This place is the embodiment of that dream. We observe Hanami here. @FerdFrederix has added his magic touch throughout this region, thank you Ferd! @JoeBuilder surprised me with a beautiful Kimono. I have to tell you, Joe, that when I wear it at Zensational, it sure feels like RP, thank you. Roleplay continues to thrive in OpenSim 🤺

At the landing are gifts
