Quilled Heart Necklace

Hi all, back with another of the projects for the Custom Quilling Newsletter, a Quilled Heart Necklace.  I have loved making quilled jewelry since I found that I could combine the brass/silver stamped filigree jewelry components with it.  I used several shades of the pinks and reds quilling strips to create the heart.  It started out a little smaller but "grew" with the shapes added.  Click on any picture to enlarge.

The jewelry components that were used for the base of the heart were two angel wings glued together to form a heart shape.  I traced a heart shape and then used curved teardrops shapes to frame the heart shape.  Then I filled in the design with two smaller hearts and s scrolls.  After it was dry I used my 18KT gold pen to gild the edges of the shapes. 

Two filigree side pieces, red crystals and beads drops and chain drape were added to finish.  I have so many more designs in work and will be offering these in my Etsy shop that will be opening this month, promise!

If you try your had at making quilled jewelry, leave a link in the comment section below to share, I and others who visit would love to see it!  Working on some card projects to post soon.  I have rearranged my craft room again, trying to get it better organized and user friendly.  I have acquired a lot of rubber stamps that have never been inked and so I am going to try my best to make projects with them!  I will also be working on the video tutorials that have been requested also.  I am not a techie and it takes a lot of trial, error and figuring out how to do it for me, so it unfortunately takes me longer.  Have a good day and thanks for taking the time to visit me and leaving comments!!
