I’m starting a fun new series (it will be posted once or twice a month) where I share some inspirational quilling designs (Quillspiration!) that I have found around the web. Sometimes there will be a theme (like this week’s theme of jhumka earrings) and sometimes there will be a mix of awesomeness. I used to post random quillspiration photos on my facebook page, which people enjoy, and decided to bring the party to the blog as well!
So I have spent a long time searching around for today’s best jhumka earrings! There were actually more that I found that were really cool and I wanted to add here, but I only added the jhumkas whose owners I could find. So each photo below is linked to the artist’s facebook page or blog. Click and view more of each artist’s work on their own page. A few of them are even linked to tutorials, read the descriptions to find the links!
The first time I saw the style of quilled jhumka earrings with the holes punched was by Pritesh from Quilling Me Softly. Here is one of her grand pieces with not only dangles, but also double layered, AND a design effect on it. On her blog she links to another post where she shares a tutorial for how to make the designs. So awesome!
Who says jhumka earrings have to consist simply of an umbrella? This design shows that it can be much more! This pair has a fun story – it was made by Lavanya from EEE Crafts, but it was designed by one of her facebook fans – the winner of a contest got to draw a design and she created it. How fun! Not only that, but there is a tutorial as well! Find it here.
The only thing the tutorial doesn’t explain very well is how to get evenly spaced holes in the base of the jhumka. I came up with a method which you can see in this tutorial.
Here are a few pairs of unique jhumka earrings made by Swirls Paper Jewellery. I am very impressed by the smoothness of all her jhumkas (just check out all of the photos on her facebook page!) as well as these lovely designs. The way the red, gold, and black papers flow is so elegant! She has this style in many other color combos as well.
Beehive Jhumka earrings came about sometime in 2014, and now can be found by many artists. From what I know, it was first created by Preethy from Pretty’s Creations. After SO many people swooned about her new design she was so kind as to create a tutorial so that others could create it as well. Click here to view the tutorial on her facebook page. Personally I find that it is hard to find a really well made and nice looking beehive jhumka earring! So here are a few that I found that I thought were well made and pretty!
