Quilled seahorse pendant
Some time ago I made many sketches of paper quilled pendants and earrings I'd like to create. I don't have much time to materialize all of those ideas, that's why they show up so slowly. The Hamsa pendant was the first one, and here comes a seahorse. I used hand-cut beige strips for it, gilded the edges using a metallic gold marker. The eye is a red rhinestone. The finished pendant was coated with matte varnish spray. Its length is about 1 3/4'' (4.5cm). I enjoy experimenting with quilled jewelry very much, so more to follow :)
