Turquoise Accents for Henna

The brown/red/orange color of henna goes so well with the vibrant color of turquoise. I just love it. Here is some great turquoise jewelry and accessories that accent henna perfectly.

This vintage 1950’s art deco necklace from Kettle of Fish has pretty turquoise-colored floral accents.

When you get your ankle & foot henna-ed, you can accent it with a pretty bracelet like this brass and turquoise anklet from Xtra Virgin.

Ah! Gorgeous turquoise cuff! from Startup Sterling!  I love the bezel and how it has a henna quality, but in metal . Picture a full arm covering in lovely red henna and with this turquoise wrist cuff.. *sigh* so nice!

And to round out the turquoise post, let’s remember that henna-ed feet are happy feet – anyone will tell ya that! But what makes them even happier is having a CUTE turquoise and copper toe ring like this one from The Whimsy Wire . Oh.. I can barely get over the cuteness..

Henna Art – Off the Body

Here is a beautiful array of henna art in many forms off the body! Showcasing artists who have taken the allure of henna designs and used them on other mediums.

A great example of henna design off the body, but still lovely traditional design, is Carry The News’  mehndi-inspired wedding invite. And what’s better? You don’t have to wait for these to be shipped to you because they are PRINTABLE! When you send your info, Carry The News emails a file for you to print and email to your guests. How awesome (and green-friendly!)

I really like this henna-inspired peacock by  Sometimes I Swirl  because of the bold colors and the fluidity of the motion.

But the embroidery by Sometimes I Swirl is equally as impressive.. I don’t know which one I like more.. !

And last, but certainly not least, we have an adorable painted  tea cup and saucer by Heather with my favorite : flowers and paisleys . I love her description here, too : “Spot of tea? Oh, live a little – impress your grandmother with this hand painted porcelaine tea cup and serve in style.”
