Paper Quilling Jewelry is an adorable collection of earrings, pendants and bracelets. It takes a time-honored paper filigree technique and brings it into the 21st century via modern designs like the celestial flower pendants, the petal power lariats and the classic filigree necklaces. Each project includes detailed step-by-step instructions, tips and tricks, and helpful illustrations to make these stunning jewelry pieces from scratch.
The book is a beautiful reference for anyone who has been wanting to try out this amazing hobby. The paper quilling techniques that are featured in the projects include scrolls and coils which can be used individually or combined to create various shapes and designs. There are many different types of tools and supplies needed to get started but once you have the basics, you can create any style that you desire.
To make the flower earrings, gather two pieces of your primary colored paper and two pairs of ear wires. Begin by creating the earring exterior circle shape using the paper. Glue the ends of each piece together to finish.
Next, make a pair of eye shapes using the same color of paper that you have already created the first circle with. Glue the rounded part of each eye shape to the center of the circle and to each other. Continue this pattern until you have six eye-shaped circles completed.
You can use a variety of colors for the eye-shaped coils but it’s best to stick with a similar color theme so that your finished design is cohesive. This way, it will be easier to keep the look consistent throughout your jewelry pieces. It is also a good idea to avoid using too many different metallic colors in your jewelry, as this can be overwhelming for the eye and can sometimes clash with other elements in the design.
