I had the opportunity to be a part of a special presentation for the newest member of the Desert Jewels professional belly dance troupe based in Pineville, LA. Amanda, not sure what her “professional” name will be, was “sworn in” this past Saturday evening. I was privy to the information because I made her “Desert Jewels” memory slide pendant necklace. Of course, she was thrilled and accepted the honor.

The other two members are Ameelah and Arella. Ameelah, aka Jessica, owns a dance studio called Ameelah’s Desert Jewels, 

I took the bellydance and Salsatone classes this past semester. Both are great forms of exercise.

Here are photos taken at Saturday night’s recital. Check out the matching necklaces. Each troupe member has their own. By the way, these necklaces definitely hold up well considering all the movement these girls do during their performance.  Whew!
