Quilling in Resin

I can't take my eyes off this stylish bracelet that Laura, the Nashville owner of Etsy shop, handyarts, created by coating rolled paper with jeweler's grade resin.


She used the same colors for each of the discs, but the circular designs vary - this adds such nice interest. The rounded bubbles of resin offer great protection for the paper (if you worry about that sort of thing), but mainly I like the glossy shine!

Laura tells me she's in the process of creating more quilled jewelry, so be sure to keep a watch on her shop in the coming weeks.


By the way, the Faber-Castell art supplies giveaway ends at the end of today. Check back over the weekend to see who won!

I'm constantly amazed by the paper creations you & your fellow-quillers come up with! Bracelets like this would make really special bridesmaids' gifts.

gorgeous! I've also been wondering about combining resin with paper quilled jewelry. I have no experience with resin, though, so have put that on the back burner. I love the colors she chose for the bracelet! I haven't made any bracelets with my paper quilled jewelry since I wasn't sure they'd hold up so well, as bracelets get banged around a lot more than earrings and pendants. This is the way to do it!
