DIY - Paper Quilling earring tutorial

Dear Friends,

This month it is anything goes at Create something Catchy Challenges. Hence no boundaries and no limitations. My inspiration is on tutorial to make quilled earring.

Quilled Earrings are quick and easy to make. To make them waterproof takes a lot of time. But you can create and cherish your friends by creating an earring for them. A few quilling strips and some earring findings are all you need to make these type of quilled earring designs.

It is a very simple tutorial and does not require a quilling tool.

 


Supplies you would need

1. Quilling strips - 3mm or 5mm - 10 Nos
2. A sketch pen or OHP marker
3. Glue.
4. Basic jewelry making supplies - O rings and fish hooks
5. Beads, mirror to embelish(optional)

Step 1:

Take a single strip and roll over the sketch pen and glue it as shown below
   
Step 2:

Pinch at one point in the coil to make a tear drop pattern. Repeat step 1 and make 10 Nos of such tear drops.


Step 3:

Attach each tear drops together to form a flower pattern as shown below.
Step 4:

Connect the fish hooks to flower pattern with O rings. Your quilled earring is ready.
   

Embellish the flower as you like - Beads , mirror, tight coil and coat it with glue and varnish.

Isn't easy to do. You can create any number of quilling earring designs by this method using basic quilling shapes
 Would be happy to see your work at CSCC#13.

Happy crafting............................  :)
