These designs came from two books of the brides. She didn't want her feet to look "like socks" so I removed a lot of the design's original elements. She was really pleased with it and everyone that came in the room said something along the lines of "wow!" So I was pleased too, though I think it was as much in response to a non-Indian doing the work as the work itself ;). The hand I did for one of the girls that was doing henna on bridesmaids. She made a point of coming over for me to do a design and they loved it. The bride's feet I worked on for about two hours and that included a couple of little breaks! The hand took about half an hour.
