Traditional Jhumka jewellery set

I received an order for a necklace set with a double layered Jhumka comprising colour combinations of golden yellow and maroon.

The dome shaped pendant is a challenging task in quilled jewellery due to the nature of the paper and its durability. It took me nearly 2 days to try out different combinations to make the pendant sturdy in order to hold its texture amidst rough use and to make it waterproof. There is a small Jhumka attached to the bottom of the pendant to enhance its beauty for grand occasions. The outcome was amazing and the appreciation received for that piece made my day.

I have already posted a similar one with the same colour combinations in my earlier post Jhumka- Double layer. I like exploring new patterns everytime and here goes the new design 🙂

Jhumka – Double layer

I made this for my friend on the occasion of Onam festival. The double-layered Jhumka is quilled into domes of two different sizes and were attached using beads and danglers. I quilled the earring using colour combinations of golden yellow and red to match with silk sarees. The golden stripes add elegance to the jewellery 🙂 Jhumkas and silk sarees are traditional South Indian attire for weddings and grand occasions.
