Quilling: Earrings

Here are several of my earrings.  All of these pictured here are original designs that I have made over these last few years.  I'll post more designs as I get together more pictures.

Prices range from $8-$22, please contact me (Chava.April@gmail.com) if you have any questions.

 Above: I call these my African earrings as I designed them for an African costume I had put together.  Price: $8
 Above: These Descending Triangles have a very modern look.  I can make these with just one color or with any color combination you choose.  Price: $12
 Above: I have not yet named this design (feel free to give me suggestions), so I'll call them Untitled #1.  These were inspired by some earrings I saw in a movie, though I'm fairly certain that those were plastic instead of paper.  Price: $15
 Above: Again, un-named, so Untitled #2.  These were inspired by some earrings that Shaylynn (from http://shealynns-faerie-shoppe.blogspot.com/) made, called Fireworks, I believe.  These were designed rather last minute when I discovered that a class I was going to teach that I thought was going to be 2 hours was instead going to be closer to 30 minutes.  Price: $8
 Above: Free-fall Circles are fun to wear.  Each earring is five circles of different sizes, all interlocking and falling down from each other.  Price: $18
 Above: I'm sorry for the very bad picture, I ended up selling this pair, otherwise I would post a better picture of it.  I'll call these Splash, as they are made up of about seven "droplets".  Price: $12
 Above: Untitled #3.  As possibly my "simplest" and cleanest design, these earrings match well with any outfit, being simple enough for denim, and elegant enough for dressier outfits.  I have only done these in a single color, but I would be willing to do several colors, or to attempt a gradual color change in these if desired.  Price: $15
 Above: Untitled #4.  These were my first successful earring design.  They are made from 1/16" wide paper, so are thinner and more delicate than most of my earrings.  Price: $18
Above: These Concentric Circles may well be my favorite personal design.  They dance when you move!  Price: $22
 Above: Water Drops start large and end in a small droplet at the end.  Price: $10
 Above: These Fuchsia Blossoms were inspired by another artist's quilling.  Since they are a particular type of flower, they are made with a dark red and purple.  Price: $15
 Above:  I designed these around the time that some friends and I were getting together a writing group, so I named them Inkblot.  You may not be able to see clearly in this picture, they are made with both blue and black paper.  Price: $20

  1. They are ALL incredibly beautiful, Chava!!! I LOVE the Inkblot. :^)
    As for name ideas, here are some thoughts:
    Untitled #1 looks dwarfish, to me. Symmetrical, bold, elaborate.
    Untitled #2 are fun, little party bangles!
    Untitled #3 'Simplicity'?
    Untitled #4 deffinatly look elvish, even reminds me of the Evenstar pendant. :love:

    1. Ooh, thanks for the name ideas! I really like "Simplicity" for #3, and maybe I can incorporate your thoughts into what I end up naming the rest. :)

    1. I don't have any pictures of those yet. I also need pictures of the ones I made for the LEP.

  3. Another good thing in buying and wearing trendy beaded jewelry is you do not want to spend thousands of greenbacks to have people who will appreciate your look and your image. Fashionable beaded jewelry like necklaces, earrings and bracelets are available in wide variety of styles and designs. You'll only spend one or two dollars to few hundred bucks depending on the kind of materials you select for your jewelry.
