Festival season

Indian festivals teach us the different traditions followed for decades. The first thing that comes to our mind about festivals is a new dress and matching jewellery followed by the variety of food items made for Neiveydhiyum/Prasad 🙂

I always like to have a matching jewellery for all my attire. When I started learning Quilling and the techniques, I was instantly fascinated with the dome shaped Jhumkas. The beauty of multi-layer and the brightness that this jewellery provides is outstanding.

This entry is for IQCG#21 – Make it Festive

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 dome shaped pendant is a challenging task in quilled jewellery due to the nature of the paper and its durability.There is a small Jhumka attached to the bottom of the pendant to enhance its beauty for special occasions.

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 🙂
