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 🙂

Quilled Heart shaped earring

The picture says it all – The earring was made with love, for my daughter’s friend as her birthday gift. My daughter and her friend have always appreciated my quilling skills and inspired me to conduct classes 🙂

She asked me to make this heart-shaped earring and wanted it to be designed in red with honeycomb coils. I added the metallic gold coils to enhance the looks of the earring.
Kids motivate me a lot and I enjoy that my crafts revolve around them 🙂

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.
