Wedding henna and volcanic rocks

Mehendi mandalas in henna, the color of love

One afternoon last January I took a ride downtown to the La Rocca Vineyards Organic Wine Tasting Room to provide henna artistry for a beautiful and intimate  wedding. Henna, or mehendi as part of marriage rites is an enduring tradition, and mehendi is applied for many celebrations in India. Mandalas were chosen for their hands, a classic India style motif. Mandalas are sometimes thought to represent the universe or the cosmos,  mandalas are also some of my favorite motifs for henna.

I love this wedding henna photo, the atmosphere is completely steeped in Chico, California! Life up here in Northern California is relaxed and casual, we’re all striving to live as one with nature, and that has a profound effect on our community. Purely natural henna is a marvelous compliment to our local lifestyle, even if the henna plant doesn’t grow here! I’m here to cultivate henna as adornment just for you, what inspires you?

yours truly,

Kristy
