Topic Name: Jewellery Out Of Paper !!
Article Details: Quilling or Paper Filigree is an art form, involving paper strips which are rolled, curled, twisted or looped, then shaped and glued to create decorative designs. It originated during Renaissance period, but became popular in Europe during 18th Century.
Over the ages it has gone through many transformations and changes. Today, quilling is seeing a resurgence in popularity and the beauty of the art is ever increasing.
I was incidentally pulled into the quilling world, some five years back and I am still progressing. Since I am fascinated by jewellery, I entwined my obsession and paper. And the result is for you to see!!
Here is one of my many creations. Can you believe this is made out of paper?!! The strips are rolled with small a needlelike tool and the desired shape is given. It is coated with a sealant to make it water resistant. The jewellery is extremely light-weight and attractive.
