Quilled Earrings 2
Did you know that quilling was also known Paper Filigree?? Interesting huh….and it’s been around right from the Renaissance period where French and Italian nuns used this to decorate their book covers…how cool is that! Anyways back to the post…..I had a few ideas in mind and I wanted to try them out.
I used quilling paper , stick on stones (added some fevicol just to make sure it sticks well), hooks and loops. All of them are available in any craft supply store…..I bought mine from India.
Here’s the first one….I was thinking how I love the aqua blue and I had the same shade of paper….and the best shape was the classic water drop 🙂 The brown stone was just to add some contrast.
The 2nd one… I decided I would try to make a heart shaped one by combining two together. I like how the cream paper and the magenta stone compliment each other.
The last one…well I am obsessed with the peacock feather and a lover of colours don’t you think it’s just a beautiful combination…so had to try it out for myself. I did this one by gluing the pieces of paper together and quilling them. I kept the stone here a deep yellow.
