Whoooo Has Seen the New Paper Quilled Owls?

*EDIT*  Make sure to visit my NEW blog and subscribe to keep updated with paper quilling tips, tricks, inspiration, and free tutorials!

 

If you’ve been following my etsy shop or my facebook page, you will have noticed the new line of owl jewelry that I have out!  I was really excited to come up with these designs.  I’ve been thinking about making owl designs for at least a couple years!

Since I have also been wanting to work on more tutorials, I was thrilled to also make a tutorial for these adorable designs!  I debuted the jewelry a couple months ago, and finally put the finishing touches on the tutorial today.

So without further ado, here is my tutorial for four different owl designs! Plus, each design comes with instructions on how to make multiple sizes!  Currently is is available in my etsy shop.  Soon I will also have it available on Meylah and elsewhere.

Retro Circle Earrings

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted any of my new jewelry pieces!  For awhile last month I was busy working on a wholesale order, so I didn’t have any time to make new pieces for my etsy shop.  In the past couple of weeks I’ve finally had time to make some!  One of my favorite design styles to make are these random retro circle earrings (and pendants!).  These are awesome because they are nearly always one of a kind!  Unless I make a whole bunch of pairs all at once, it’s nearly impossible to make them exactly alike.  I always like one of a kind styles :)  Here are two of my most recent retro circle designs!

This aqua and black pair is one of my favorites ever!  There is something special about these two shades of aqua.  Pair them with black and you’ve got a pair of earrings that will turn heads!

Black and silver is another favorite combo!  These are a smaller size than the above earrings, for someone who wants something unique, but smaller.

Tiny Rose Post Earrings

*EDIT*  Make sure to visit my NEW blog and subscribe to keep updated with my paper quilling jewelry,  tips, tricks, inspiration, and free tutorials!

I’d like to share one of the newer designs I have available in my etsy shop, the tiny rose post earrings.  I love making tiny roses and I know that some people like very small earrings.  When I make the dangle ones I need to use two tiny roses back to back to make a little bead to dangle from the earring.  But with the post earrings I only need to use one which gives another very affordable option.

Here are the colors that I have made so far, click on the photo to see the ones still available in my etsy shop:

 

Don’t see the color you want?  I can make these earrings in just about any color!  All you have to do is send me a convo on etsy for a custom request.  Or simply purchase one of the pairs that is instock and leave me a note with your order saying what color you would like.
Don’t forget, the Christmas in July sale is on through the rest of the month.  Use code CIJ30 during checkout to receive 30% off your whole order!

I’m happy to have another paper quilling tutorial available!  This one is for five earring designs.  Of course, these designs can also be used as pendants or as designs on gift cards or anything else if you wish.  Here are the designs included in this new tutorial:

I have many  more plans for tutorials coming up.  It takes a lot of time to develop them, but it is fun as well!  Next up I’ll have another free tutorial, hopefully available in the next couple of weeks!

This tutorial, like my others so far, is available in my etsy shop.  It is a .pdf file with LOTS of pictures and very detailed instructions!  Even if you’ve never done paper quilling before you’ll be able to follow the directions to make these.  Click here for more details about the tutorial.

The Lovely Lotus

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted!  Sorry about that to anyone who regularly checks in.  I WILL be posting more often now.  Sometimes life gets in the way and I had to minimize my workload for a few months.  But I should be back on track for awhile now :)

I have still been doing some creating, though!

One project I was working on was a frame for a friend’s wedding.  I did a lotus themed frame.  I loved the lotus design a lot and thought it would look great as a pair of earrings, so I made some extra for earrings.  Here is my first pair:

I want to make more of these in some other color schemes as well.  You’ll notice in my shop that most of my new earrings are photographed and listed with niobium findings.  I am really loving niobium!  I’ve made a few pairs of earrings for myself as well, and I always use niobium now.  My earrings are pretty sensitive I’ve found.  I used to be able to wear any of my earrings with no problems, but over the past few years they’ve gotten more sensitive.  If I wear regular plated earring hooks my ears start getting itchy pretty quickly.  Even with some sterling silver and gold jewelry they are a little itchy, though it’s a lot better.  But niobium seems to be the best of all!  I can wear them all day and my ears won’t be irritated.  I also love that they are non tarnish.  I find it annoying to pick up some earrings from my jewelry box that I haven’t worn in a long time and see that they need cleaning or even changing because they are tarnished.  No worries with niobium!

But if you like a pair of my earrings and prefer gold plated, silver plated, or the antique bronze or copper hooks, that’s no problem!  Just let me know before you purchase and I’ll adjust the listing for you.  The price will be about $5 less, or even more if the design uses many jump rings.  And if there is a pair of earrings in my shop that you’d like with niobium hooks that currently have regular hooks, just let me know and again I’ll adjust the listing for you!
