Demo preparations and more quilled earrings

I've been busy this weekend dividing up strips and making coils in readiness for the quilling demo I'm giving at my women's group on Thursday. I'm going to show them how to create teardrops, bunny-ear and marquise shapes out of the ready-made coils, and hopefully wow them by gluing the shapes together to make a butterfly and a flower. Then they are going to try making their own coils and hopefully have a quilled gift tag to take away with them at the end of the evening. Some of the ladies are very excited already, so I hope my demo lives up to their expectations!

Meanwhile, I've been making a few more quilled earrings to replenish my market stock. Here's a new pair of black/white and silver huskings with a black folded rose on each - I thought the rose was quite a nice finishing touch. Now I need to come up with a few more new designs ...


  1. Lovely, I like that you added a rose!!!
    Good luck with the Demo, I think you'll do great

  2. Love those earrings, that is a terrific design. Good luck with your demo, I'm sure they'll all love it

  3. All the best Philipa for your quilling demo. The earrings are fabulous!
