Paper Quilled Penguin Animal Figurine


This happy little penguin figurine is made entirely from paper quilling strips.  He has rosy cheeks, a red scarf to keep him warm, and quintessential black and white features on the face and body.  He is approximately 2.5 inches tall and stands up on his own adorable webbed feet. This little guy is coated in a sealant which makes him water resistant and UV resistant. He is also coated in an additional glaze, making him sleek and shiny, perfect for slipping and sliding on the snow.  He'd be a perfect gift for any animal lover.

All ornaments will arrive in beautifully packaged boxes wrapped with a ribbon and optional gift tag, ready for giving. 


Approx. 2.5in tall x 1.5in wide x 1.25in long

What is quilling?

Quilling is also known as paper filigree. It is an ancient art form that involves curling, rolling, looping, scrolling and coiling thin strips of paper into various shapes for decorative and artistic purposes.

All of my quilled paper jewelry is what I like to call "rain or shine", as I carefully hand-paint each piece with a sealant that makes it water resistant and UV resistant. This sealant also provides a sturdiness to the paper which makes it just as robust as "regular" jewelry. I do not recommend swimming in or sitting on your quilled paper jewelry :) but it is suitable for everyday wear. As with all precious jewelry, careful storage of your paper jewelry is also advised.
