Hi all, back with another quilled jewelry project. This bracelet was on of the projects made for the February Custom Quilling Newsletter that I haven't posted yet. I used the navy strips that came in the kit to quill the motifs. These strips are a little heavier weight and I think it gives the quilling more stability for jewelry.
I used oval shaped antique gold filigree pieces as the bases for the quilling. The motifs have alternating rounded and softly pointed petals with light and medium blue crystal centers. Bugle beads and peacock beads accent the bracelet ovals for additional sparkle.
The motifs were gilded after completion and before adhering to the filigree bases with an 18KT gold pen. I love the way the filigree bases expands the possibilities of quilled jewelry and have more ideas and shapes to play with! Back later with another project!
