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.
