Drawer of Bangles
A drawer of bangles from my collection. I sometimes wear lots of these when I perform belly dance.

Speaking of wearing bracelets and bangles for belly dance, Tribal Fusion belly dancer Rachel Brice wears beautiful jewelry on her arms. She  collects jewelry from all over the world.

Take a look at her Pinterest board, “Bracelets & Anklets,” to see some beautiful pieces.
