What exactly is this jewellery trend all about?
Jewellery designs are intricate and very much about royalty - and boy, they are grand. So these new mehendi designs are about imitating Indian jewellery and it's intricacies. From haathphools to maatha pattis to kadas and chandbaalis - these beautiful Indian jewellery pieces are all about keeping it very traditional. So instead of random pretty designs, your mehendi design has a purpose - that of imitating beautiful pieces of jewellery instead of wearing real ones or in addition to real ones. minimalistic brides who want to keep their look subtle can also wear their elegant fare and then add bold in the form of these quirky mehendi designs.
How does one apply it to look great at weddings?
The thing about using jewellery pieces as mehendi design is that - you can take inspiration from real life jewellery. Take your mom's old maang tika or her pretty anklets and get them created into a design that is more intricate and personal. Ask your mehendiwala to research on the latest jewellery trends - like stacking rings, midi-rings, modern zardosi anklets, flower jewellery or even kundan haathphools to recreate them as mehendi designs. The crazier the design, the more intricate, the jewellery piece - the better the outcome. Go from big and bold to sweet and minimalistic - according to your personality and your lehenga of course!
