Tell us about your business.Circuitry began with a spark of inspiration and has evolved into what you see here -- a line of unique accessories, made in the USA with the most comfortable cotton fabrics and non-toxic fabric ink. Design ideas come from the world around me -- inspired by my friends, fashion trends, as well as my own passions. Once I have a design in mind, I research and sketch and skew until I find the best style and size for my headbands. Then, I carve the design myself. All headbands are machine-sewn by me in my studio. I specialize in yoga headbands and arm warmers. My designs also include popular motifs, astrological signs, woodland creatures and other animals, and focus on the passions of women -- photography, sewing, yoga, reading, horseback-riding and more. I also make fabric jewelry, perfect for moms of babies, especially breastfeeding mothers. I love coming up with new designs -- I plan to continue expanding my etsy shop as well as branching out into brick and mortar stores.
