Step 1: Materials Needed
- Quilling strips shades of Green (here I use 8 shades) 5mm thickness

- Plastic mould
- Stone chain for decoration ( I use blue stones)
- wire cutter
- flat-nose pliers
- Round-nose pliers
- Earring findings and (eye pin, crystal beads, bead cap / cone, earring hooks, spacer etc.)
- clear varnish for long life (water proofing)
Step 2: Lets Start
make a long single strip, by joining one strip from each single colour, from Quilling strips shades of Green.
starting from dark green to light green.
Refer the picture. Wait for a while lets dry it properly.
Step 3: Make a Dome
Now start making a tight roll, start from light green side.
To make roll,
Insert a piece of quilling paper into the slot of your quilling tool, and start rolling, when almost done, place glue near the end of the strip and roll to complete. And remove it from the tool. (refer picture)
Now, I use quilling mould to make dome shape. Make a nice dome by pressing towards down down.
Similarly, make another dome.
Now we have two nice dome, lets go to next step.
Step 4: Fix the Shape of Domes
Now, once we have two domes ready, glue it from inside, let it dry.
Then, glue it outer side, and allow to dry completely.
Now, these domes are water proof, and its shape also fixed.
Once dried, spray clear varnish both inside and outside of the domes. lets dry
Step 5: Decoration:
When domes are completely dried, attach the stone chain using glue.
Same way, as shown in the pictures. Wait till dry.
Step 6: Attach Findings
First, insert the eye pin as shown.
then one by one attach
- bead cap
- green crystal bead
- one more spacer
cut the extra wire, with wire cutter, keep a small wire left.
Twist the extra wire, and make a round with round pliers.
Step 7: Attach Earring Hooks
