Here is another of the project for the Custom Quilling Newsletter this month, a quilled butterfly necklace. I used a butterfly filigree piece for the base and used pink strips to quill teardrop shapes to follow the pattern on the base piece. I then gilded them with a silver pen.
The butterfly's body was made from beads and silver wire which also made their antennae. AB and pink crystals give it some sparkle as well as the butterfly dangles. Click on the pictures to enlarge. I love making quilled jewelry with these filigree base pieces and the possibilities the extra foundation that it gives to the piece. Short post for today, thanks for all the encouragement!! Back later with another project.
