Mythical or Mystical! A Quilled Peacock

After a realllly long time I completed a project which I have been planning for quite some time. A quilled peacock.

When I go back and see myself progress from this (A Quilled Feather) to this attempt, I do feel proud.

I am sure I am nothing compared to the likes of Pritesh, Suganthi, ManuK and the likes in quilling delicate pieces, but it has nevertheless been a good journey so far. Hope I grow :) :)

Here are some of the pics of India's National bird perched upon a branch..

I may not have gone for the traditional peacock colors in the true sense. I have played with the shades a little bit. What can I say, everything is fair in Art!

I have used 5 mm strips for the entire project. The leaves were created using tissue paper so that it looks real. I doodled with some quilled leaves for a while but finally decided to go with this approach.

Quilled jumkas! and some others

Hi all, Here are some pics from my recent take on quilled jewelry. (jumkas to be more precise). This is my first try at quilling jumkas. I absolutely love spending time doing this. Even though it takes time, patience and care to craft each item the end product is absolutely worth it. I am a great fan of Pritesh's jumkas and even though these are no where near to her creations I am sure it is a start. 
Thanks to Vijayvel for the pics :)

Hope you all enjoyed it and looking forward to making more!!!

Until next time!
