NEW Jewelry Kits & YouTube clip!

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

Finally, our NEW Jewelry Quilling Kits!  “Romantic Roses” and “Modern Waves“ Necklace quilling kits! The “Romantic Roses” kit won the Top 20 Innovative Product at the Craft & Hobby Association trade show!  Quilling is finally gaining popularity and some well-deserved attention!  People were amazed at what you can do with strips of paper!

The kit makes two pendants! I found a wonderful clear glaze that not only helps bond your paper to the pendant, but it leaves a nice thin coating over your quilling. “Crystal Coat Glaze” is so much fun to use because it spreads easily then hardens the quilling like it’s porcelain. It’s so cool! A little tube goes a long way too!

The pendants are lightweight and 1/8-inch (3mm) deep. Imagine ALL of the possibilities you can quill in these pendants! Check out  our jewelry supplies!

Here are more pictures from CHA!

We found out that we were selected as the TOP 20 Innovative Product ONLY a week before CHA.  So, the crazy quiller that I am, I made over 100 of these pendants to giveaway! They loved them!

Here’s your own personal demo on how to make them! Enjoy!

I made a video clip on how to make them on the Quilled Creations’ website.

Happy Easter!  He is ALIVE!

Here’s a simple quilled card project I made that is featured in “CardMaker” magazine – March 2010 issue, page 17.  It’s part of their “Quill It Easy” section.

The roses are made from the pinks/ivory/white “Spiral Roses Quilling Kit“. They also come in burgundy/red/purples and orange/peach/yellows.

If you want to learn how to make the spiral roses, then check out my video clip on the Quilled Creations’ website.  They are very easy to roll and create!  I actually prefer making these spiral roses (instead of the folded rose) for my gift cards, wedding frames, gift boxes, etc.

Here are some other ways to use these lovely quilled roses!  The topiary in this picture is about 3-inches high.  BUT…

…check out what one of my customers did…

Wow! Sue Cox emailed me this picture of her topiary she made last summer and it blew me away!  Talk about being inspired!

Here’s how she did it:

“I made this 21-inches tall topiary using approximately 1100 of your “Spiral Roses”.  I spread this project out over several weeks but believe it took around 80 hours to complete.  The top Styrofoam  ball was 3-inch in diameter before decorating and the bottom was 5-inch. I simply bought a bright gold finished plastic pot and placed the topiary inside.  I glued it onto the bottom and then placed large smooth river rocks
to hide the bottom .”

Thanks Sue for your extreme quilled creation!
