very special, but I have to ask, the gold clip in her hair, is that separate from her veil and is it tied to her earrings? Not questioning the painting, just trying to understand the jewlry. Very interesting...like a history/geography lesson :)

Looks great Maria :thumbsup: , and a very interesting thread but you seem to be painting in a completely different style than your usual posts, is this because of the subject ?

Maria, your attention to detail is quite impressive. This is very beautiful... I especially appreciate well done hands. Nice work Maria.:)

Thanks Barry, Smokin, Aggie, Jean and Joel.

Aggie, its hanging with a hair pin which is invisible from this size.

Jean, yes I am blending too much because the client wanted to be.

Joel, thanks.

Lovely work Maria! Do they use Mehendi in your area for brides as well? I probably spelled that wrong?

Thanks Edie, Annie, Kareen, Mom and Kirk. Aggie, you are welcome.

Yes Edie, its a due thing in our wedding ceremony. But on that time, there was very simple designs of Mehndi. Now they are more complicated and elegant. So I have added the design approx. to that era.

Kareen, these jewells are given to the bride as a gift on her wedding day. Both from her family and from bride groom side.

Kirk, yup and there is another amazing fact that our wedding funtions long for one week. Including Dholki, Maiyoun, Mehndi (2 days funtion), Wedding day and Walima (dinner from Bride groom after wedding).

Added some more jewelry and also Mehndi.


Another closeup.

Maria, beautiful work your detail is fantastic! My daughter was asked to help a friend with her wedding and had been asked to do medndi for her but she talked Pratima into getting a relative to do it but my daughter did her hair and makeup for her. I was hindu wedding.
