I've been working on a lot of little projects lately that I thought I'd share...

I love the idea of unconventional quilling - and what is more of a surprise than mixing fire and paper?  I designed these candle holders and turned them into a free tutorial if anyone wants to give them a try Smiley


This is a simple pair of earrings that I plan on turning into a tutorial but haven't yet.  I love how the colors came out.


And lastly I designed these earrings as a magazine submission - but sadly they were rejected Sad  I am still pretty bummed out about it, but at least I get to wear them now.


Thanks for looking!

The candle holders are awesome! And since we've recently moved house I've been looking for decorative items to make, to jazz the place up a bit, and the candle holders will be a great addition! Sorry about the rejected magazine submission but those earrings are FAB - very Art Deco - and I would wear them in a heartbeat!

The little boxes are so cute and clever. All the others are beautiful as usual. Smiley

I can't believe that your flower earrings were rejected by the magazine but I'll bet they won't be by your fellow crafters here.  They're fab, and so are the candle boxes. Your work is amazing to me.

Your little boxes are adorable and practical.  And your flower earrings are top-notch.

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

Thank you everyone Smiley  Someone on my FB page mentioned that the magazine may have felt they were too complicated for their readers to easily reproduce - which may be true.  Since quilling is not a popular craft, there is no real way to condense a pattern down.  Maybe I'll submit something a bit more simple next time.

I'm very impressed. The things a person does with quilling fascinate me.

Beautiful -- I like the mix of the simplicity of the circles but the boxes also look intricate since they are quilled.

Love your unconventional quilling.  Your earrings are great.  It is that magazines loss not to showcase the flower ones.   Have you tried honeycomb quilling yet?  I am always looking for new ideas for using paper quilling strips.
