Cuffs and Stuffs

I may have inadvertently picked up Sparrow's cuff-making mantle.  See, she says she wants to give up jewelry for a while.  And I happen to have made these two cuffs this weekend using almost all things given to me by her, giving them a very Sparrow feel.
The dark one doesn't look so great laid flat. But I'll shut up about the scanner sucking.                                                                            I seem to have hit a... wet spell?  I mean, I've been selling a bunch this weekend.  A buyer told me she listed me on her facebook and that now I've been discovered by the "tribal fusion belly dancing community"!   Perfect for the headdresses I've been wanting to make for a while now.                                               Problem is that I'm drowning in supplies again and it's making me frantic.  Am I the only one that is made frantic by her stash? Like, panicky?  Each bit screams out- make me into something!  But not just that, they tell me exactly what they want to be made into, more or less, or they start chattering about different possibilities, and oh, the voices! The voices!                                                                                 OK, not really. More like, oh the ideas! The plans!  It crowds my head until finishing things is just a relief for a second before I have to rush off to the next one.  Meanwhile, eating and basic hygiene get neglected...

Hi Marina, I meant to tell you, I met Penny and her mum yesterday in London! It was so great to finally meet up and we had a great day.

The new cuffs are gorgeous.

It's about time that the Tribal Fusion bellydance community got wind of your work. I would love to see some headdresses or even just fascinators from you.

I just love all of your wonderful art. I will have to come back here again and see more of your work.

Have a great day!
