What bellydancer doesn't want their very own coin bra? Well, when you aren't a performing dancer it is hard to justify spending your disposable income on buying or even making one. So I decided to make a mini version and enter it in the challenge. I used pics of my dance instructor in costume (thanks Jill) to get a basic design layout. I needle felted the bra from teal wool and then hand-sewed seed beads on as "coins". It still looked a little empty so I added some other jewelry findings. I finished it with the chain that is also sewn on. It took me five hours and is JUST under the two inch mark.
After consideration, I thought I didn't want something else tiny I made just hanging out that didn't serve a purpose, so I spritzed it with a mix of peppermint and lavender essential oil and hung it in my car as an air freshener. Better than those plastic cherries I got off the clearance shelf at Target that lasted all of two weeks! Hope you dig it!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
