Charmayne's Quilling and Curly Cues
Thanks to all the books, bloggers and Internet-posted pictures for inspiration for the earrings and pendants I have enjoyed making. My life would be diminished without you!
Post earrings. The backing is a 3-layer thick stack of cardstock with
the earring post sandwiched between the layer closest to the quilling
and the middle layer of cardstock. It is very strong. I make the backing
before gluing it to the quilling. I cover the outside layer of cardstock
with fingernail polish to protect it.
These two sets of earrings are vrotex coils.
|This is another design concept by Erin Curet, Little Circles.net. I have made 2 of her bracelets and here are my comments and suggestions. That page will also show you more photos and how I changed mine.|
These 3 pair of earrings were more practice in making the outer rings plus squishing beehive quilling which I saw on a YouTube video by Kativilaga.
|The earrings to the right are nothing but circles! I used both tight coils and ring coils for this pair of fushia and light pink earrings. Note the outer band. Bob found a wonderful little tool called a Japanese book tool at a kite workshop we go to. It cuts perfect little circles with just a push. This is not a paper punch but a hand held screw punch. His research came up with ones for a few dollars up to a hundred. Ours came from eBay for about $18.00 and has several tips. Works for him. Works for me. My holes are just 1.5mm.|
|The design concept to the left is by Erin Curet, Little Circles. I saw her "Suspended Snowflake Earrings" on a YouTube video and I decided to give it a try. The finished product is large so I made mine into pendants. Click on this link for more information and photos.|
