Quilled decoupage jhumka's- A tutorial!!!

Heya folks,

I have been very reluctant to make jhumka's. I myself don't accessorize much so the last time I made jhumka was maybe 2 years ago for a order. 
This time I had my friends asking me to do them. So here I am with my attempt at quilling jhumka. Yup these are made completely from paper. I would love to hear what you all think of this attempt.

This is a pic loaded post and scroll till the end for the video tutorial for the Quilled Decoupage Jhumka's.

I had help from fellow crafter Janani who made a video to show me how to make the quilled dome bases. Thanks a ton gal :*

I initially used 3 mm strips now have shifted to 5mm strips to make the quilled dome bases. I am really happy with the way these Jhumka's are turning out.


 I started of with simple jhumka's. A classic combo of red with gold. Red Riot it is.



Then came in the idea for decoupaging on the jhumka surface. As its a dome I couldn't use bigger patterns so I searched my stash for the smallest flowers possible to make these. 
 The result is awesome and is loved by everyone.





Now for the best part of the post.
The video!!!


Here's a link to Janani's video for rolling and making the jhumka bases: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qc6hE2CVpcE

The list of materials used for making:
1) Quilling strips- 5mm from itsy bitsy
2) Quilling Slotted and needle tool from Shilpi
3) Mini mold by Quilled creations
4) Fevicol
5) Camlin's artists Gesso from itsy bitsy
6) Paintbrush
7) Decoupage tissue napkins collected over time
8) Scissors
9) Decoupage gloss glue by Artzone from itsy bitsy
10) Earring findings- various sources

Hope the video inspired you. Do share your feedback. Would love to hear what you think of it :)
