Paper QUILLING ~ Earrings

  • Warmer weather is coming, and you'll have your hair up more, just in time to show off your beautiful new earrings !!  Learn the sweet art of Paper Quilling While making a lovely pair of earrings !  Quilling is a lovely filigreed paper art done by curling paper with a little split ended tool (originally a feather quill) and creating simple or filigreed designs.  The possibilities are endless when creating earrings !  Craft one of these designs or make up your own.  Any design can be in any color scheme.  It's a wonderful, impressive way to make thoughtful, handcrafted gifts.  A 15th century art of France and Italy used first by nuns to embellish religious objects, it has had a resurgence, and well it should as it is a lovely decorative art.  Come and make your first quilled object.  The sky is the limit on the wonder you can create with this simple yet amazing skill.
