Making Jewellery Magazine Features Quilled Jewelry

In September I was contacted by an editorial assistant at Britain's Making Jewellery magazine who had come across my paper jewelry. They were planning to do a feature about quilled jewelry in an upcoming issue - would I like my designs to be included and could I send over high-res images? Yes and yes!

I replied to say that just last year my how-to book about making quilled jewelry had been released. This led to checking with Interweave to make sure it was fine to use images from The Art of Quilling Paper Jewelry, and I later learned that a review of the book would be included as well.

When I received the issue of Making Jewellery in the mail last week, I was delighted to see that they had indeed used the photos in the grandest way - super-size! - and had written a really nice review.

Review of The Art of Quilling Paper Jewelry in Making Jewellery magazine

All in all, the magazine devoted fourteen pages to quilled jewelry - how nice is that! There is a basic tutorial for getting started, another for a pair of pretty earrings, and many examples of quilled jewelry. It is definitely one of the most comprehensive quilling articles I've ever seen in a magazine.

In addition to quilling, there are articles about working with resin and paper clay, pyrography, and handy templates for making boxes to gift your jewelry. Another thrill was seeing a beautiful article about my friend in paper, Liz Hamman, who was one of the first paper jewelry artists I featured on this blog back in 2009! She is still making gorgeous jewelry today, so I know you'll love reading about her too.
