Paper jhumka tutorial

Hi friends,
Jhumkas without quilling mould and quilling tool  - wondering how. Here is my tutorial. Anyone can learn it easily.
Step 1:
Choose the colours you want, I have taken blue shades.

Step 2:
Make a tight coil with dark colour in the middle and outer. I have used toothpick to these coils.

Step 3:
Take the tight coil and  gently press it from one side and hold it as shown in the picture below.

Step 4:
Now rotate it in the same position and press the edge(dark blue shade) while rotating the coil, you will get the jhumka easily.





Step 5:
Now coat a layer of glue to it and allow it to dry, you can connect it directly to the hooks or attach any design to its top. it can be either round, square,etc. I have chosen to fix three teardrops over its top. Now repeat the above process for the other earring and pendant.


Arranged on the top to get a crown effect.
Step 6:
Now coat with varnish to make it water proof and glossy. Allow it to dry. Arrange pearls to it as you wish to make it more beautiful.

Step 7:
Open ear wire loop by twisting loop open, not pulling loop apart. This maintains the original shape of the loop, and makes it easier to get a tight closure.

Hang earring body off ear wire loop. Twist loop shut tightly. Repeat for other earring.

Step 8:
For neckwear, take the spring wire and insert the nylon thread/beading wire through it and attach the clasp/screw endpiece to it. Take the pendant and connect to the wire with the help of jump o rings. 
Now your set is ready to wear and enjoy!



Material used:

Quilling strips, nylon wire & varnish, Fevivol MR - Itsy Bitsy
Beads, earring findings, sprin wire - local shop

For any queries or help, pls mail me hrshylaa(at)gmail(dot)com.

    1. hi preetha,
      you can use any paper varnish / mod podge - allow it dry and coat it again for best results. i used camilin paper varnish earlier and but now i am using clear varnish spray(avl in paintshop) due to the time consuming activity

    1. for a small jhumka - the length of the single strip should be minimum 60cm, then you can add the length depending on the size you wanted

  29. Shylaa ji! thanks for this tutorial. My query is how to judge as to how many strips of quilling paper needs to be joint to get the exact shape of the required jhumka? Is there any guide available for it? I'll be highly obliged if you guide me on this. Thanks.

    1. Hi arpita,
      it truely depends on the user's desire.
      For eg: for 2X2 cm jhumkha - you will need mininum 3 quilling strips. just 2 more for the next size

  30. Can we make big jimmukis also with small quilling needle or any special needle for very big size ones mam.pls reply.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. no special needle is reqd. This is my homemade quilling tool - just slot a tooth pick in the centre at the tip part and use. you can use a quilling coach - if you are finding difficult to hold the tight coil
