11th Day of Christmas -- Quilled Jewelry by ChavaJanuary 05, 2013
I'm sorry that the 11th Day of Christmas post is one day late-- I was having some issues, but my friend Chava very kindly offered to do a last minute giveaway! So today will be a double giveaway day!
Chava makes absolutely stunning jewelry out of paper. She uses a quilling technique, which consists of spiraling tiny strips of paper around a special needle, bending it into shape, and gluing everything together.
(I remember trying to do quilling a few years ago. I wasn't able to get the paper to spiral properly and even something as simple as gluing together a bunch of circles to make a catepillar proved to be a messy challenge! Chava has the knack, though!).
She doesn't have an online shop yet, but you should go visit her blog. There is information there about placing special orders!
A few months ago we did an artists' swap and she made me the lovely set pictured above. (I have a chain of my own for the necklace and managed to get it tangled... something always goes wrong when I am trying to take pictures!). Isn't it lovely? She seemed to figure out exactly what I wanted, even though I had no idea what design to choose!
Here are some more examples of her work:
Chava will create a jewelry set for the winner of today's giveaway! She can make the jewelry set that she designed for me (the necklace and earrings in the top picture) in any color!
