20.4.5 Jewelry Approval Rules
Many of the rules governing jewelry are the same as those that govern tailoring and the other tradeskills. Below are some rules and guidelines specific to jewelry making. This list is by no means exhaustive. I. All items used in jewelry making must be actual items or commodities. For example, earrings cannot be made of shadow. II. Jewelry cannot be made from fresh organic materials such as leaves and flowers, due to how long pieces of jewelry tend to last. III. Like in the case of tailoring, use of the term "wearer" is not allowed, as the item may not always be worn. In addition, items may not be described as if they are being worn. Describe the ring, not the person wearing it! If you wish to describe how it would interact with the body when worn, be sure to make it conditional. IV. Items may only shine, gleam, or sparkle if there is a conditional light source described. Otherwise, they "look" magick and will be rejected. V. Jewelry items may not have engraved words in the examined description, with the exception of a small maker's mark - such as the initials A.R. or "The stem of an iris twines around the letter L, representing the jeweler's mark". Anything longer will need to be engraved using the Engraving ability - only transcendent jewelers have this.
