Henna Designs – Nature-Inspired Art

Many of my henna designs are inspired by nature  – hibiscus flowers, vines, daisies, water, succulents, dahlias, peacocks, feathers etc. I like to make what nature gives us as inspiration and make it more fantastical in my henna designs. Today’s feature is nature-inspired art to reference many design elements in nature that inspire us all.

This adorable Micro Marimo moss in a glass gourd by  MyZen is a cool display and has an interesting story: “About Marimo Balls:
These delightful little balls of algae also called Cladophora originate in Lake Akan Japan. They are revered and adopted as “pets” in Japanese homes and offices and are believed to bring good luck. Marimo name is derived from Mari meaning “bouncy play ball” and “mo” meaning underwater plant in Japanese.” Neat!

I will admit, if I owned this incredible miniature terrarium necklace by Woodii I would wear it EVERYDAY.. Between the small pebbles at the bottom, the variety of moss and the adorable cork stopper, this pendant has en entire little slice of nature in an adorable glass vile.

If you want the more traditional yet elaborate nature display in your house, these succulent terrariums by Another World Plants and Terrariums is the way to go. I have a soft spot for terrariums with succulents because there’s just something so cool about moss and succulents mixed together. <3

Easy to care for, the air plant inside “requires little attention and happily sits amongst the other items in the terrarium.” Perfect for first-time terrarium owners.

Henna Photo Shoot and Pregnant Belly

I have been very busy lately! Summer is the best time of the year for meeting people and doing henna on them. The past few events I have done have included a party of lovely ladies for a henna photoshoot to celebrate our bodies and a prenatal belly with such a lovely mommy-to-be.
Henna on a pregnant belly is a symbol of good luck and good health for the mom and baby.
