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.

Quilled Gold and Ivory 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...

Quilled Earrings with Beads and Rhinestones

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:

Quilled Ball Earrings

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. 

Quilled Minimalist Earrings

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.  

Triangular Quilled Earrings

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

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.
