How to Add a Metallic Edge to Your Paper Quilling

 

 

 

 

 

There are many ways to dress up your paper quilling with effects!  One of my favorite is by using metallic mica watercolor paints to add a metallic flair.  This is especially gorgeous with jewelry, but can be used with other quilling projects as well!  This tutorial has been moved to my new blog.  Click here to view the whole article and tutorial!

A Rainbow of Butterflies

I realized that I haven’t shared any of my butterflies lately!  I thought it would be fun to put a whole bunch of them together in one photo file for you to see the rainbow!  Okay, so it’s not a real rainbow, but I think it would be really fun to make a real butterfly rainbow someday!

 

If you click on the image it will take you to all the butterfly items in my etsy shop.  Some of these are there, some have already been sold, and there are also some in my shop that are not pictured here.

Stay tuned within the next month or two and I will be creating a tutorial to make the small butterfly to use for earrings, hair clips, pendants, or anything else you might want to use it for!  It is a pattern that I designed myself.  My first pattern was the large blue emperor butterfly.  However, I needed something smaller for hairclips for a custom order so I created the smaller, more simple pattern.

Christmas is Coming!

‘Tis the season…. to come up with new earring designs!  Last year my Christmas earrings were of two designs:

Christmas Wreath

and Christmas tree

This year I thought it was time to create some new designs based on some of my other new earring designs and patterns.  First up….

Mistletoe!    These earrings use my basic cluster/bunch earring design with a new twist – some mistletoe berries!

 

But that’s not it for this year – I’ve got some Pointsettia earrings in the making with a brand new design I’ve been working on!  I should have that ready to share next week!

There are more earrings that are great for Christmas as well, even if they are not directly Christmas related:

Unique and Fun Crescent Hoop 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!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted any of my new designs here.  I’ll start with sharing some of my newest crescent earrings.  As many of my designs often are, this one was based on a customer request.  The customer loved the look of my huge crescent earrings but wanted something smaller.  Still a big earring, but not huge.

Here is the pair that the customer chose, which is the first one that I made. The combination of burgundy and black is lovely!

I also made another design, more “feathery” in look instead of all of the circles.  I used a black with silver edge for the inside design.  I think it looks so glamorous! You can see more pics of these here on etsy.

I thought these earrings would be perfect for the fall, with fall colors they could even look like leaves.  So I just had to make them in autumn colors as well!  Here they are on etsy.  They remind me of a pile of gorgeous fallen leaves!

These earrings are big, but not too huge.  The perfect size for making a statement, but not standing out too much. Because they are created from paper quilling, they are lightweight, no sagging earlobes!

I can’t wait to make this design in more color combinations.  They can be made to match any outfit!

A Paper Story by theRShop

Today I just want to share a link from a fellow Etsian.  She has a cute new ring shop on Etsy here.  Last month she created a beautiful treasury called The Color of Paper which you can see by clicking on the title.  Now she has used these images to create a cute and quick video that sends a great message about paper!  See it here!  She kindly included my rainbow butterfly earrings in the treasury and the video along with other gorgeous handcrafted paper products by other talented Etsians.

Lattice Earrings – Handmade Paper Quilled

Sometimes when I am looking for inspiration I browse through jewelry on etsy or elsewhere on the web.   One day I saw a pair of gold lattice earrings and the ideas started flowing.

My first attempt was this small pair. I like the color change on it, but I wasn’t totally happy with the design because it was hard to get the pieces perfectly in place as they are so tiny.  Get this pair FREE with any purchase from me!

After thinking for a few days I came up with this design instead. I absolutely love it! It is bigger, more beautiful and floral looking, yet more sturdy as well!  Find it on etsy and meylah.

But not everyone loves big earrings, so I came up with this much smaller version as well. Very cute!  Find them on etsy, meylah, and handmade.my

And for those who like even smaller earrings, here is another design!  Find them on etsy, meylah, and handmade.my

Last week as I was looking at the medium and small lattice earrings I realized that they remind me of a tropical getaway.  Sort of Hawaiian or Polynesian in design.   The large one does as well, but is also very elegant.  I love how all three of my final designs turned out and can’t wait to make some in more colors!!
