I have been very inspired lately by some of the quilled jewelry that I've seen. Looking at all those beautiful pieces put me a mood to create my own designs and see what happens So for the past few days I've been busy with my paper strips and glue :-D
According to my momma (who is a little biased...lol), this is the fanciest jewelry set that I have ever made. Go figure! I used black, ivory, gray and white paper for this set. I covered the quilled items with Triple Thick to protect the paper. But the gloss is the icing on the cake for me. I did the same for all the jewelry that you can see in the post.
These pink daisies are a fun pair of earrings. I expect to get some funny looks driving down the road with my hair pulled back and these bright pink flowers on my ears ROFL.
This set down here I call Sunrise Flower. I've had the beads for maybe 10 years! But once I made this flower pendant I just KNEW that I had to use these beads.
This last photo is a sneak peak at the necklace on which I'm still working. This one is a little bit more complicated. It was inspired by a piece from India. It is a very delicate piece and I'm still thinking of a way to strengthen it
All of the flat back pearls used in these projects, as well as the silver findings are from Miriam's Crafting Supplies.
