I first make a paper Jhumka, when I learned paper quilling. It is a very easy- to- create paper jewelry .
Here is the step by step tutorial on making beautiful multi-colored Jhumka using paper strips. You can try any color combination for this Jhumka.
You can make this beautiful earring in 10 minutes. Imagine how trendy if your wear matching jewelry to your clothes
I already shared some of the basic quilling tools and materials. You must check this page if you are a beginner. This post gives a detailed description of all quilling materials and where to buy them.
For creating this paper jhumka you need
- Two color quilling paper (here I used 3 mm. You can also use 4 and 5mm quilling paper).
- slotted quilling tool
- 3D quilling mold for shaping Jhumka
- eye pins
- jump rings
- metal spacers
- ear hooks.
You can use any two color quilling paper for this Jhumka. Here I used red and yellow.
Step 1 :
Take four quilling paper, three red color and one yellow. Glue them one by one in the following order. Red, yellow, red and red.
Take a slotted quilling needle. Insert the paper strip into the quilling slot and keep quilling until you get a tight coil.
Remove the coil from the quilling tool and fix the edge using glue to secure the coil.
Then take your 3D mold and put the coil in the appropriate slot. Gently press the coil to get the Jhumka cup.
If you don’t have 3D mold, you can make it using fingers. Slowly push the coil from one side to another side to get the structure.Apply a layer of diluted glue inside of the cup to secure the structure.
Now our Jhumka cups are ready.
Insert an eye pin from the bottom of the cup. Then insert a bead spacer on the top. Make a small loop at the top using pliers. Insert a jump ring and attach the hook.
Repeat the steps for another earring . Your paper quilled Jhumka is ready. Now you can waterproof your jhumka. This will give an additional protection and a glossy look to your Jewelry.
