It’s always fun to come up with a great new design for my quilled jewelry. However, it can be just as fun to come up with a new variation of a classic!
A couple months ago I was working on the frame design for the quilling contest (click here to see that finished design). I wanted to put some of my little nine pointed stars into the design, but I decided on a whim to make them with three colors instead of the usual one color. So for each petal I use three colors, to match some of the colors in the main design.
I immediately wondered why I hadn’t done this before when making my nine pointed star earrings (click here to see all the colors of my nine pointed star earrings), it turned out so nicely!
When I was finished making the frame design, I made a few pairs of earrings using the multicolor technique. I have more in mind, but here is what I have made, photographed, and listed in my shops so far:
Aqua is one of my favorite colors to make earrings from, and this pair is no exception! Paired with bright white, they make a beautifully cheerful combination. Find them in my Etsy shop, and in my Zibbet shop.
These are the only three combinations I have made so far, but I have many more in mind! If you want a pair in another color combination, just let me know and I can make custom orders. Greens, purples, grey/black, yellow/orange, black with bright colors, there are so many options!
Stick around, there is lots to see here on the blog!
