This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This time is a sunflower earring. Sorry still no big diamonds :P

For female sims through teen to elder

Full recolourable of 3 parts (petal, pistil, hoop and tassels)

Both hair styles are from EA (basic game hair)






Sorry for the high polys, I still couldn't find the right way to let alpha work for accessories, so complex models again

Polygon Counts:
1400

- Model's lipstick is made by tmnt at http://blog.yam.com/tmnt/
- skin is free from Peggy
- eye is by Miniie at MTS, link:http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=355433

Great thanks to all of you!!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Very nice, thank you! I don't know if it's right, but I read in another forum that polys don't count that much, so I don't worry anymore about them!!

M0rgaine - That's not true. Poly count is important - while counts are increased for TS3 over TS2, if poly count didn't matter, then everything in game by EA would be high poly too (and it's not).

I first made a low poly one, but couldn't get the alpha channel working... I tried to import it to old TSRW, failed again! Then I have to remake the model...
I hate high poly too...They may slow down your game.
The only good thing of a complex model is when you look very close it will still be clear and nice.
And, I haven't got any problems with this earring yet, so I decided to share it. If anyone gets a problem, please let me know :P

She is not made with slider hack, but slider hack is useful if you want to make special sims, and I have installed sims made with it, they show up perfectly in my game, though I don't have this mod.

Great earrings. Thanks. BTW, I don't think the sim comes with the download.

I feel honoured, a Spanish magazine wants to feature my Desperate Housewives and Will Smith in their feature on celebrity sims.

I am not sure where the eye is from, the package file named 'BEyesColorBlend_071409'.
This download is only for earrings, so lets forget about my model sim and focus on her earrings ...

Your earrings are very beautiful! =)

But I want these eyes too, but 'BEyesColorBlend_071409' cannot be downloaded. There came one internetsite only and that link doesnt work.
