Remember the Mulberry Flower earrings that I posted in the We’re all ears February challenge, well it belongs to this beautiful 10 piece Paper rose Bridal jewellery set that I customised for a Bride recently for her Haldi function.Though Real flower Bridal Jewelry is traditionally worn, its not very practical to make nor wear as it dries out fast, hence paper flower jewelry is a great substitute as its light, beautiful and can be reused. Paper flowers are usually worn (on the head) during dance performance – particularly Bharathanatyam performances for this very same reason.
Paper rose Bridal jewellery
This set started of us an experimental piece as the bride’s to be sister-in-law wanted an artificial set for the Bride that resembled real flowers but was unique and looked grand. For long I had looked at scrapbooking supply sites and drooled over them, so when this opportunity came I suggested using gorgeous mulberry paper flowers that the Bride and her SIL accepted.
This Paper rose Bridal jewellery set includes a thick choker with a pearl necklace, a long rope chain (with pearls) and a rose flower pendant, two bangles which also function as a haath phool (bangle connected to a ring), two armlets (Baajuband), 2 anklets, a pair of earrings and a forehead ornament called as a Maang Tikka.
My client also wanted bangles to be made into Haathphool so I worked with velvet ribbon and micro roses so that it will be comfortable for the bride to wear them. Don’t they look really elegant and princess like when worn? I also did the same thing with the anklets – Ribbon over sot wire embellished with pearls and roses
The armlets where the last to be made, simple yet elegant with little pearls peeking out of the roses. I ma making a very similar set as I am writing this post but with slightly different flowers and maybe couple of changes in design. I feel that such Paper rose Bridal jewellery sets make a nice change to the Ribbon flower jewelry that I made before.
Angelus Sinlesius said that “A rose blooms without an explanation, she blooms because she blooms” but these flowers of mine bloom to make a Bride happy on her special day. What more can I ask for?
