Modern Quilled Earrings by Filigratti - Giveaway

Congratulations to @lindahookart, @amy_michelle87, and Laura, giveaway winners!

New readers (welcome!), you might not realize what an avid fan I am of paper jewelry. Lightweight, yet durable, quilled paper earrings simply make sense... they won't hurt your lobes or your bank account, plus they attract the nicest kind of attention. Filigratti is a new Etsy shop with a carefully crafted selection of on-trend paper earrings.

Owner Niharika in Bengaluru, India works with quilling paper strips (some with a metallic edge), pearl beads, and in a few cases, crystals, to create pretty dangle and stud earrings. To celebrate the shop's grand opening, she is offering a generous giveaway and discount to readers of this blog. More details in a moment...

A paper lover and maker since childhood, Niharika began creating rolled paper designs without realizing quilling was already a well-established art form. The story is best told in her own words:

I have been making rakhis for my brother every year for Rakshabandhan, an Indian festival where sisters tie a sacred thread (which is also embellished) around their brothers' wrist and pray for their well being.

I painted a few sheets of paper, cut it into strips and rolled it into coils. It turned out to be a beautiful rakhi. More than a year later I came across a quilled earring diy, and I thought she's used the same technique I had used to make the rakhi. Only upon reading the post did I get to know it was called quilling. And as they say, the rest is history.

It's a joy for me to be able to create colorful, exquisite jewelry that can be worn all day long with absolute ease.

Niharika coats the earrings with multiple layers of non-toxic varnish, making the paper highly water resistant. While she doesn't recommend taking them for a swim or shower, if they do get wet, simply pat dry with a cloth or use a blow dryer for 10-20 seconds. Silver-tone earring wires are stainless steel or upgrade for a small fee to sterling silver. Gold-tone wires are gold plate on sterling silver. If you prefer different colors than shown, Niharika will create a custom pair for you.
