Quilled Multi-colour earring

If we know the basics of quilling, it is very interesting and fun to make colourful art pieces or jewellery. This earring is made by my sister for her daughter. Since the paper jewellery is weightless she can wear it and have fun.

There are many possibilities with the colour combination. Here she used yellow and dark blue colour. For this earring, you should make 2 sets of every coil. The quilling tool usually comes with the paper strips.

Time: 50 minutes
Age: Over 10's
Level: Medium

Materials
Multi-colour 5mm quilling paper strips
Scissors
Glue
Quilling slotted tool
Stud base
Stone bead

Method
Gather the supplies.You have to make 6 coils for this earring, 3 sets of round coil with different size.

Using the quilling tool, roll the joined strip tightly to make the small round coil. The small coil has blue in the center surrounded by yellow. When you get to the end, add a little glue to the edge of the strip to hold it in position. Make 2 coils.

Now take another blue and yellow strip. You have to make a little bigger round than the previous coil. So use the whole blue strip and 1/2 of yellow colour strip. Glue together both strips and roll tightly using the tool. This time, yellow in the center surrounded by blue. Apply glue at the end to hold it in place.
