Quilled Earrings

Hello girls,
Here I am with my Quilled Earrings project for Adhiraa Creations, I have always experimented a lot with quilling but this is my first time playing with jewellery. I have hoarded those metal earring loops and a lot of designs since quite some time and I finally got some courage to put them to use for Use it Tuesday !!



Here i have used purple and blue tinted papers to cut the strips. I was pleasantly surprised that it dint take more thn 4 purple and 2 blue strips per earring.The earrings are about 4.5"-2" in size.

Few steps to it:


What I noticed is, initially the outer shape can be tricky to maintain, but once the filling is done it does retain the desired shape.I wanted to give it a traditional look, hence the spiral filigree!!

I want to thank Adiraa Creations for my attempt in Quilled jewellery !!

  9. Another good thing in buying and wearing trendy beaded jewelry is you do not want to spend thousands of greenbacks to have people who will appreciate your look and your image. Fashionable beaded jewelry like necklaces, earrings and bracelets are available in wide variety of styles and designs. You'll only spend one or two dollars to few hundred bucks depending on the kind of materials you select for your jewelry.
