Paper quilling jewelry adds a delicate, feminine touch to any outfit. It’s also a lovely gift idea for sisters on Rakhi.
Contemporary paper quilling combines scrolls with loose coils and other shapes. The time-honored teardrops and marquises play only a supporting role in many designs. Learn how to create these modern styles in Ann Martin’s book, Modern Paper Quilling.
Earrings are a key element in almost every jewelry wardrobe. They complete a look and frame a face. They can also conceal other types of jewelry, like necklaces and bracelets.
When it comes to concealing Paper Quilling Jewelry, earrings are a good place to start. They’re easy to make, look great and will fit a wide variety of styles. They’re also a quick and inexpensive way to give a little handmade love to someone special!
To create these earrings, simply attach teardrop ring coil trios to each other on a non-stick work surface. Apply very small amounts of glue to adhere each ring coil, just enough for it to hold in place and not show through.
You can use both shiny metallic edge quilling strips or tone on tone ones (like silver-edge ivory and gold-edge blue) for these designs. The only difference is that the tone on tone strips don’t have the shiny silver coating of the metallic ones.
Pendants are a stylish way to conceal your Paper Quilling Jewelry, allowing you to wear it without revealing the gilded designs. They come in a wide variety of styles, from decorative to functional, and are often made of gold or silver for an added touch of luxury.
These pendants can be used to add a unique flair to any outfit, or make for thoughtful gifts. You can even use them to celebrate a special occasion, such as a wedding or anniversary.
To make this simple pendant, you will need two basic quilling shapes – teardrops and c-scrolls. First, make six teardrop shapes from a bright color of your choice, and then 6 c-scrolls in a dark color. Glue the c-scrolls to the center of the teardrop, and then glue each petal to an adjoining one. If desired, you can seal the pendant to make it more durable. This is especially important if you plan to wear it around water or for long periods of time.
Pendants are a great way to conceal any sharp paper seams or other imperfections that can occur during the creation of quilling shapes. To make a pendant simply snip the end of the strip and glue it onto the end of a circle you’ve already made (try to match it up with the last color you used so there are less holes in your finished piece).
Necklaces are one of the most timeless pieces of jewelry. Throughout history, they have been styled to mirror cultural and fashion trends as well as serve specific purposes like symbolizing wealth and social status or displaying ecclesiastical regalia.
Necklaces can be worn alone or layered together for a stacked look. A strand of pearls is a classic choice for formal events and has recently become popular to wear with casual attire as well. A station necklace, also known as a ‘tin cup’ chain, alternates beads or other gemstones with chain elements to create a dainty, elegant display.
Paper quilling is not just for cards, frames, and envelopes. It can also be used to create stylish bracelets. It is a fun and easy craft that can be made with almost any type of paper. You can use leftover paper scraps, schoolwork, junk mail, or even old wallpaper.
The first step is to fold a strip of paper into the shape of a circle. Then, you can begin to weave it into the paper cuff bracelet pattern you have chosen. You may want to add a bit of glue to the ends of your weaving for extra security.
Once the bracelet is complete, you can add a string to each end of your crafting stick cuff bracelet to help it stay secure on your wrist. You can add more string to the ends for a tighter fit or make a loop at each end to tie the bracelet together. This is especially helpful for smaller wrists.
