Luz Milagros' Profile

About

I have a view of the world as fantastic and mystical; I definitely do not belong to the ordinary world. Special occasions occur daily. Waiting to wear a beautiful piece is wasted. Living is the occasion.

The garments and accessories I make are inspired by nature and have a whimsical, organic quality to them. I'm often scouring a fabric or craft stores for materials that fire my imagination. My pieces have the flexibility to be worn everyday, or for special events and performance.

I prefer to make garments from stretchy fabrics as my lifestyle requires me to be physical. If I'm not teaching exercise or bellydance, I may be rolling around the floor with a toy light saber playing with my G-son, or walking my very strong husky mixed-breed pup.

Since learning to Nuno felt, I have become virtually obsessed with felting. I have changed my whole living space to accommodate my compulsion to merge silk with wool. Most of my Nuno-felted pieces have a silk chiffon base with Merino or Alpaca wool yarn. Occasionally I will add Mohair and synthetic fibers, beads or sequins for flair or I will use and open weaved fabric like lace as the base.

I also work with feathers, wire, synthetic yarn, Alpaca & merino wool, coins and ribbon to make my "Tribal Tresses" hair falls. I have added wool dreads to my portfolio of hand-crafted items. I may also make hair ornaments and bellydance wear such as fringe belts, hip scarves and cropped tops.

I also am looking to open a shop for my Sacred Artworks. This would linclude smudgefans, staffs, wands, etc that are used for sacred and mystical work. Look for it soon!

I define myself as a Fiber artist, garment and accessories designer, Bellydancer, bellydance instructor, personal trainer, group fitness instructor, performer, illustrator, calligrapher. The order changes according to whim or the wind.
