Intro: Reversible Quilling Jewellery
My wife wanted to create a jewellery that can have multiple use. So she thought of some thing that can be reused just by flipping and using. She made these jeweleries using quilling papers. The necklace is reversible, but the ear rings are just as they are. Follow the steps to create one of your own like this. Don't ask for any drawings as she told me that, she got the idea in her dreams.
Patience (most required if you have a 2 year old sabotaging around the house)
Lots of quilling papers
Step 1: Making the Base
Take some quilling papers and wrap around the quilling comb. Size does not matter as long as they are the same size. Make at least 3 overlaps. Make lots of them.
Step 2: Overlaying
Now start weaving another color of quilling paper on the rings you have made in the previous steps. Make a tight weave, but not too tight so as to warp the paper. Glue them in place when looks satisfactory.
Step 3: Make Many of Them
She made a larger one for the center piece, and many smaller ones for the side shows.
Step 4: Final Touches and Assembly
She also made many tear drops from the quilling papers to adorn one side. And many fan shapes to adorn the other side.
The ear rings are easy! Just twists of different color papers and adorned by teardrops.
For the assembly, she used nylon fishing line and threaded all this up. Using basic beads as spacers.
Now you have 2 different jeweleries without the hassle of storing both of them! To use them, just flip it over and you have a different design. Or may be rotate alternate units to get a totally different design.
