Yesterday, I showed you some of the quilled jewellery I've been making that I hoped might be accepted for sale in a gallery near to where I live. Today, I'm showing you two more pairs of earrings which I took down there this morning, together with the two pin brooches and silver/blue earrings featured in yesterday's post.
These earrings are quite striking, I think, utilising two-colour 'beehive' swirls in a diamond shaped enclosure. I made the background discs using my usual die cut cardstock/pearlised paper 'sandwich' method, adorned with a couple of magenta die cut swirls that have been glued on decoupage-style:
And this pair features die cut leaf shapes topped with some metallic edged quilling for decoration:
Well, I'm delighted to say that the owner of the gallery loved them all! So she will be offering them for sale amongst her amazing stock of other desirable objects at Gallery Fifty Five in Hartley Wintney, Hampshire. Take a look at the gallery's website, and you'll soon understand just how honoured I feel!
Also, I can now confirm that I will be holding a quilling workshop for beginners at the gallery on Saturday 23rd June 2012 from 14.00 - 16.00pm. The cost per participant will be £25.00 to include tuition, materials, tea/coffee and cake. Contact details for the gallery are listed here for anyone wishing to reserve a place.
