Paper quilled jewellery


     I haven't posted here for a long while now but I have been posting some of my work on my page .While making quilled jewellery I try to use tight coils as much as I can for I find them more durable. For this set I  used both 5mm and 3mm  green colour strips , the 3mm strips are graduated. This set is made to order for a friend as a gift to her future daughter in law.
     After quilling I rubbed acrylic gold colour paint randomly on the earrings and pendant and I was pleasantly surprised at the beautiful metallic look . I am making a green paper beaded necklace to go with the pendant to make it a complete paper set.  My elder son is now away in College at NIT , Trichy , It is so difficult not having him around. I even have him read my posts before publishing. He has been asking me why I haven't posted for so long , it seems he drops in here sometimes to see what I am doing. We are really proud that he is now in a very prestigious institution.



    These awesome perfect round beads are from Janice Mae of paper beads .I won one of her weekly giveaways on her facebook page . Each week she announces a different prize for the participant with the highest likes. All you have to do to enter is  message her pictures of your work and she posts them in her page.

Thanks for stopping by , Have a creative day.

Love the gold metalic effect. The green and the shape from a distant reminds me of something yummy to me - green peas. Love them!
