Jhumka earrings are an Indian design of jewelry that is extremely popular.  I tried looking up some history about it, but it is so hard to find!  I’m guessing it’s one of those things that is so old that there is not much of a story known behind it.  There are many styles, ranging from super simple umbrella shapes to multi layered with beads. Sometimes in the past decade or so paper quilled jhumka earrings became popular.  It would be awesome to know who was the first to come up with this idea!  Paper quilling seems to be a hugely popular craft in India, so of course the artists there have translated that into colorful and unique jewelry. There are two awesome things about making quilled jhumka earrings:

 

  1. They are lightweight!  Jhumka earrings are usually made from metal and can be quite heavy.  Paper quilled jhumkas give you the beauty without the pain of heavy earrings!
  2. They can be colorful!  Indian clothing comes in such gorgeous designs and colors that it can be tricky finding just the right matching jewelry.  But if you make your own, it’s so much easier!  You can make a pair to match any outfit you have.

  1. Thanks for including my green jhumkas in this post! I made this tutorial to “spread the word” about jhumkas…as popular as they are all over the world, Americans are very unfamiliar with this style. It’s always a pleasure to share this design and talk about it at craft fairs. Thanks again Honey!

  2. Hi,I have started doing paperquilling Jewellery for Sale..But iam facing the problem with eyepins and headpins.After making jewellery with in one week these eyepins and headpins are Discoloring eventhough I have packed in a box..I could able to find the solution for this problem..Can u plz give any suggestions in this…

    • Hi Madhu. That is very frustrating! The only explanation I can think of is that they are oxidizing. What metal are they made from? If they are sterling silver they need to be kept in an airtight container/bag so they won’t oxidize. I keep all of my findings in separate little plastic bags. When the weather is hot and humid, metal can oxidize much faster, so it really needs to be protected. Low quality metals will discolor even faster.

      • Thanks For Your reply…Iam facing the problem with the Gold coated Eyepins, Headpins…They are Discoloring only after making Jewellery set….

        • I see. My guess is that they are not very high quality, so they discolor easily. All of my silver and gold plated ones eventually discolor, but usually after years, not right away. The really cheap ones discolor faster. Try buying a different, better quality, one and see if that helps.
