Quilled Bouquet

I created some flowers with the new colored sheets of paper which I’ve recently bought. I  came up with a very light, simple design with the shape of a quilled bouquet and I gave it a black background to contrast with the orange and yellow flowers.

The total size of this quilled picture is 24cm x 19cm (9 7/16″ x 7 1/2″), and inside the frame 19cm x 4cm (7 1/2″ x 5 1/2″). Continue reading →

Quilled Jewelry – Flower Pendant and Earrings

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.

Happy Quilling!
