Great communication with the seller, and I received it lightning fast! There was a slight snafu with the bra and she made it right within literally 10 minutes of my message. THANK YOU! Very much looking forward to wearing this for my performance and I'll be back to shop again sometime soon!

About

Small town Belly Dance obsession leads to Artistic Costume Design and Production

I started "working out" with Belly dance DVDs in 2000, it was a fun way to move and a great way to stay motivated, if it's fun you WANT to do it! My Husband saw an ad for a Belly dance Workshop an hour away and suggested it might be fun to see what was all about. I did attend and saw a whole new world open up!!

Since then it has been an Adventure! Learning more lead to wanting to do more and eventually Performance opportunities appeared. Unfortunately I live in an area that is 30 minutes away from all but basic needs. In the beginning there no costume solutions other than online companies and attending Workshops, even now there are few options closer than 3 hours away.

I have always felt drawn to Artistic endeavors especially hand stitching and sewing, it is my personal " meditation" It's a way to express feelings and relieve stress for me. The lack of Costume options pushed me to use those skills to make my own. Soon others in the Troupe asked for pieces and one thing lead to another.

I grew up on a farm with Horses and cattle, horses were my passion in younger times, the aroma in my Workshop with all the leather hides and pieces brings back those good feelings, some times I even find an interesting bit of Horse tack or Harness piece for a dance item. Why not??

Each item is made with careful consideration and care, if you take home one of my pieces you have a "warranty" from me, if anything goes wrong, you fall and break a strap, someone tugs and pulls something loose, if you need help with anything that is mine, I will do my best to fix it for you, and at no or very little cost!

All items are my own design, I copy no one, and do not outsource anything! It is all my own work and inspiration!

Welcome to my Etsy store. Everything listed is a product of my inspiration from many sources including my friends and fellow dancers, materials found on shopping adventures to thrift stores and unique places. Most of the items are made with something recycled,vintage, already worn, ethnic,with a little new added for truly one of a kind unique choices.

I try very hard not to duplicate or borrow other designer's ideas and request that others do the same!

I love to create special pieces and welcome custom orders.
Your satisfaction is always my goal!
