I have been using a particular flower pattern ever since I learned it. The best example of work based on it is this pair of quilled jewelry: earrings and pendant.
For this project, I used 120g/sm paper hand-cut into 2mm (5/64″) strips. The diameter of the earrings is 3.5cm (1 3/8″) and that of the pendant is 4cm (1 5/8″). To add strength and make the paper quilled jewelry wearable on rain (I hope so, never tried it actually) I’ve coated them with 2 layers of water based varnish.
This year I got a special present for March 1st: it was this website. From now on, I have my own playground where I can share my newly discovered passion: the art of rolling strips of paper – quilling.
And since spring is not here yet, I want my first post to be a reminder of the sunny days.
I used 2mm (5/64″) wide strips of paper for the flowers and leaves and 6mm (1/4″) – 8mm (5/16″) wide strips for the fringed flowers.
All paper strips and fringed flowers are hand-cut. The frame is made from 300g/sm cardboard. The total size of the picture is 19cm x 16cm (7 1/2″ x 6 5/16″), and inside the frame 14cm x 11cm (5 1/2″ x 4 1/2″).
