Quilling Jewelry

Published by under quilling,Quilling Jewelry

I love quilled jewelry.  It is very popular right now, and rightly so – the look is just lovely.  I wanted to try my hand at making some, but was hesitant due to the fragile nature of paper.

I am notoriously hard on my jewelry and all the spray sealer in the world (which makes paper water resistant, not waterproof) can’t keep a toddler from grabbing hold of the quilling and crushing it.

 

To solve this problem, I am experimenting with embedding paper quilling inside resin.  This preserves the delicate look of the quilling, but makes it pretty much indestructible.  I am very excited about the many commercial jewelry bezels available and look forward to making my own.

 

I would like to wish all of my quilling friends a very happy, healthy, and creative new year!
