Been a while since I've posted here..... Cheesy

A long time back I made an aluminum set like this for a lovely lady in Columbus, unfortunately, we seemed to have lost contact before I recieved the promised modelled pictures. I posted them here on a mannequin, but it's just not the same in my opinion.

This January, I recieved a message asking if I could reproduce the costume pieces in gold, and late last month the finished anodized aluminum pieces made their way to Germany, to their new owner!

Here's a few modelled pictures she furnished:

The full view, showing the bra and belt. There's over 300 little interconnected diamonds made from the euro 4n1 pattern in these pieces. The disc in front of the belt is a kuchi pendant, commonly used in belly dancing.

A better view of the bra, I had to use a bigger ring in the center to pull the cups together, otherwise they hung a bit too far apart to give any coverage.

Closer view of the belt.

The 'artzy' shot....LOL

Whatcha think? Cheesy

Wow! So so intricate!  I love the look though.

Why do some people think being a parent is only something to do when it is convenient for you?
Those who say it can't be done shouldn't interrupt the person doing it.

I think these are very classy pieces.  I especially like the belt portion.

You must have the patience of a saint!
They are both great but I really love the belt. I bet it would look amazing with a hipster pair of jeans on a night out!
Fantastic work.

I kinda thought a bit of LOTR was there too! Cheesy

It was fun to build...I wish I could have seen the look on her face when she opened the box. Cheesy

Thanks all!
