This brooch I quilled as I was packing to go home for Christmas, it occurred to me that the blouse of my saree was too plain and it would do well with some embroidery, I don't have time for needle work now and quilling a brooch sounded like a good idea. I wanted more red on the brooch as I had to wear it on green background, but it turned out more green. Still I wore it and my mom thought it would make a nice pendant. I was also surprised that the brooch was quite sturdy even though I have not used tight coils.
This earring I made along with my valentine day card. It has the same design. I liked the folded rose inside the circle of tear drop shapes.
I decided to make some more quilled jewelry and this is what I had in mind for a long time. After I wound the crimped strip I applied a generous amount of glue on the other size of the earring . When the glue dried the crimped strips had become quite stiff and kept its shape well. I have used violet colour strips for this one but looks more blue in this picture.
This is a blue one , made with the basic quilling shapes , tear drop and round coil. I punched out small white circles from my card stock and stuck it behind the round coil.
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day.
