Where art is Danceable, Rockin', and KILLER!!

Silks by Sahariah creates silks for the bellydancer in mind. Whether you are a tribal, cabaret, gypsy, or fusion/fantasy dancer, Silks by Sahariah caters to the needs and desires of each particular dancer. Each veil or set of veils is uniquely and very carefully hand dyed and created by the artist, Sahariah. Her color designs are carefully thought through with what she knows may go well together, and makes sure that the colors do not become "muddy" when blended. She chooses colors that tend to blend well without them being "muddy", so that they will bleed nicely into each other, and make other gorgeous blends of colors, thus creating the "butterfly" or "dragon fly" effect, resulting in iridescent effects. Her color combo designs are made with love, creativity, inspiration and imagination. No two veils ever come out exact, but may be similar,…

Her color combo designs are made with love, creativity, inspiration and imagination. No two veils ever come out exact, but may be similar, as they are uniquely hand dyed works of art. Each veil or set of veils cannot be duplicated, and are one of a kind! Her feedback on ebay is evidence of having a good business reputation towards her customers, as well as on etsy:);)

Let's see, I LOVE dyeing silk!!! It's WAAAYYY sooo much better than scrubbing toilets!! :( LOL!! I hand dye silk bellydance veils such as, my Killer Silk Moths (half-circle veils), rectangle veils, and Killer Veil Poi sets (veil poi veils for fireless spinning), plus my FANtasy Veils, (Fan Veils)

I went on a mission trip one summer to help out with inner city kids, and was in charge of arts and crafts. We did tie-dye bandanas that came out AWESOME!! That is how it all started! (Silks by Sahariah was born)I have had a passion for bellydance before I ever went on this trip, and was inspired to create my own gorgeous combinations of swirling color onto silk veils!!

I LOVE to create! Just having the freedom to let go and do it because you love what you do, and others do as well, is a great stress release!
I have to say, that every time I dye my silks I have many beautiful winged creatures stop by and light on my silks while they are drying. Most of them being butterflies, moths and dragon flies! They are attracted to the bright colors, and must think that they are flowers!
That in itself inspires me to create, and makes me to ENJOY creating even more! I've also had the not so delightful winged critters, such as bees and wasps, and the like, but they just go on their way. I even had a humming bird one day, which was a pleasant surprise! The squirrels just love to gnaw on my drying dyed towels, I wondered where those holes came from!! LOL!!!!

I LOVE Bellydance!! I am so inspired by middle-eastern music and it's culture! I love the many different styles, especially tribal! I taught myself at home with Dvds, went to many local shows, and later on joined a troupe, and I've been hooked ever since!

I have a wonderful husband of 25 years, and have four beautiful children, who are taller than me! (that comes from their Dad!) Oh, I also have an adorable Australian shepherd/blue heeler, who is very lovable, and a cat who was wild, and more lovable now, that I adopted! We have BIG cockroaches here too! Fortunately, I don't see them much!

Well, it's time for me to Let go, Create, Relax, and ENJOY!!! I hope you ENJOY!!
