Accessorize & Beautify!
Hi all! The Dancers Eye - Fine Art Bellydance Photography is super excited to be joining you at Sacred Circles in 2017! I will be offering photo sessions and shooting performances, more information will be released at the beginning of the year. I can't wait!!!!
Carrie Meyer, Photographer/The Dancers Eye, has had an interest in cameras and photography from a very young age, when her parents first allowed her to experiment with several of their cameras. She fondly remembers her first Kodak Instamatic, and the variety of fun shots she was able to capture with it. Carrie began bellydancing in 2001, after losing 100 pounds. She sought to find a workout that would inspire her to keep the weight off, while not being tied to the gym.
Little did she know at the time that this was just the beginning of a love affair with dance that has now spanned a well over decade for her. In this period of time, she has studied American Cabaret, ATS and Fusion, and has danced in groups that have featured all these styles. Carrie is currently doing further studies in traditional Egyptian dance and has actively danced in several St. Louis based performing groups for over 18 years.
Regardless of the photographic subject matter, Carrie’s work shares certain commonalities. The clarity of the images represented, thoughtful composition, and the meaning of the moments in time that she captures characterize her work. The foundation of her work builds out from the strength and power of the basic images, and the personality, of her subjects.
Having married her love of bellydance with her love of photography, Carrie offers her dancer subjects a unique opportunity to work with an artist who truly understands the dance, and how dancers want themselves to be portrayed.
Carrie's work has been featured on the covers of Fuse, Jareeda and Zagareet and in the pages of Yallah, among other publications. Carrie is also a Staff Member for the Belly Dance Business Academy. You can find more of Carrie’s work on The Dancers Eye Facebook page or at www.thedancerseye.com.

In 2008, WendyBeth started making hair ornaments, which have been featured on Tina Rena Model under Elegant Art & Fantasty and Beauty Shots. She developed a passion for working with silk flowers while very young. When she was a child, her mom used to do flowers for weddings and she would 'help' her. Since then she has always enjoyed working with silk flowers. In 1995, she designed my first floral hair accessory for her junior prom using live flowers.
WendyBeth has over 25 years of art and design experience with over 20 years of sewing experience. At this point she designs her own sewing patterns because it's just easier than trying to find a pre-made pattern that fits right or try to adjust one. For the last 10 years WendyBeth has been in love with reusing/re-purposing clothing that she loves that either have been damaged, doesn't fit or she have out grown the style...
I can't wait to see you at Sacred Circles! I've been having a blast making beautiful things to share with you! I make costume pieces with a mix of vintage, antique and tribal influences. Most of my materials have had a previous life. I truly enjoy making belts, headdresses and jewelry out of unexpected things. I love the patina of old leather and beautiful decorative pieces from earlier times. It's important to me to buy used materials as much as possible, and I hardly ever toss any bits. There is a use for everything! It's mesmerizing putting these items together. I hope you love them too!

The Red Camel has had the privilege of offering dancers a great variety of tribal jewelry, DIY components and textiles since 2003. This year for the first time I'm bringing these treasures to Sacred Circles! All my pieces are selected with dancers in mind. Many are vintage, others are handmade and one of a kind, and scads of DIY components have just the right look and feel for costuming. I source my huge variety of items from North Africa, Central Asia, India, East Asia and more. Let The Red Camel help you create a look you'll love. I can't wait to see you there!
Ostara’s Ornaments are hand-crafted using recycled materials keeping the unique needs of dancers clothing in mind.
The fabric textures and colors, as well as the other decorative materials used in our dance and ‘festival/utility’ belts, are carefully chosen to create beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces that are eye-catching, functional, and move well while on stage.
