Quilled earring tutorial



       I was recently requested for a quilled earring tutorial from Vandana of Craftsia blog. This is a simple design made entirely out of tight coils. The colours used are silver and pink colour strips.

      Take one silver(or any colour) strip and roll it around a pen or your tool to make a tight ring coil.



       Pinch the ring coil on one side to make a tear drop shape , Repeat this step seven times. 


       Make a tight coil out of one silver strip ,first roll the strip with a needle or slotted tool and stick the end.



      After these steps you will have seven tear drops and one tight coil


      Stick all the elements together preferably on a plastic surface so that the flower can be lifted off the surface easily after drying.


      Make tight coils with the pink colour strips ( I used half a strip for each tight coil).Then stick them together to make a flower .

       Stick this pink flower on top of the silver flower. I also added a small punched circle to the back of the
earring to cover all the joints of the silver colour flower and to make the earring more sturdy


      Repeat the entire process to make another to complete the pair . I added glue to the wrong side of the earrings to strengthen it .

     I am working on a lot of cards but can't post until the end of this month. I am also trying to do my bit for our library's Navarathri Golu.

     Thanks for stopping by , have a great day.
