Gorgeous work, as always. (This is my second bra from Althena.) The amount of metal makes it look badass! Shipping was quick and the bra was carefully packaged.

Gorgeous as always!! I really love the little pops of color on this piece. Subtle & elegant but with an added depth.

This is an exquisite item. I honestly couldn't be happier. Also, thank you for sending it to arrive on the day after my arrival in the USA. Thank you for such care and magic that you put into this beautiful item. Jayney xxx
Finding what drives you is vital.
Like the women before me in my family, For the longest time I had no idea what I wanted to be when I grew up. My Grandmother was a skilled artisan who took the opportunity to try her hand at any craft she could. From silversmithing, sewing,painting, wood carving, creating stained glass pieces and pottery. She took me along on all of these adventures, building a serious love for all things creative. I took the sewing skills she could share with me before departing this plane and thank her everyday as I have found my passion. She also imparted to me the importance of our impact on the planet and animal life. Starting in 2015 all of my supplies will be only second hand, vintage and antique. I believe we have an obligation to our world and the human/ animal neighbors to create responsibly. Let's make conservation and recycling popular again!!:) I am an avid vegan, recycling, composting, gardening machine. If I am not sewing unique pieces for the wonderfully beautiful people who support my store then I am in my garden trying to make friends with my chickens. I am working on a line of completely upcycled cholis for dancers, a line of upcycled trade bead necklaces and hammering,soldering, and decorating silver for those who are addicted to the.925. So little time in each day but I am so happy with this path. It wouldn't be possible without my family,friends,customers and students. Did I mention that I am one obsessed bellydancer? When I was 21 I saw a photo of Rachel Brice and I had to find out more about this incredible earthy and wildly adorned woman. I found the Domba studio in Phoenix AZ and took as many classes as often as I possibly could. My twin sister and I were there four days a week,three hours a day for two years, it was like getting access to a
Library, complete with the most unique collective of instruction. I later became a Fat Chance certified ATS teacher and continue my studies in fusion with one massive DVD collection, lots of workshops and a sometimes neglected Datura account. :)

You guessed it! If I'm not found raiding stores or homes for antiquity I am sewing. Self taught, tough lessons learned, totally in love with this job.
