Oculus Design creates meticulously hand-crafted headdresses and accessories to help bring your vision to life. Drawing on a background in tribal fusion belly dance, Oculus Design incorporates many different cultural elements into its pieces. I’m inspired by the rich tribal components used in modern belly dance, and I love creating a fusion of seemingly juxtapositional elements. I feel that using vintage and antique components is important to lend history and authenticity to my work. I try to use repurposed/reclaimed materials as much as possible, but sometimes using new elements is necessary to achieve the look I want or simply to make things function. Reflecting on the past, yet always looking forward into the future–let Oculus Design help you share your vision with the world.
