a Quillkaari Valentine Giveaway!!


I'm sure Swaati Chattopadhyay's collection of quirky, beautiful, handcrafted accessories. “Made with paper, glue and louve! are something that have the ability to stay fresh in all your visual memories. It’s just the kinda stuff that soft, fluffy Valentine visions are created of! EACH piece is hand made by Swaati, from cutting, to sticking to packaging.

In conversation with the sunshine woman…

So, what's Quillkaari, again?
A collection of objects made with paper, rolled on a quill. Think beautiful, quirky, pretty earrings, pendants, accessories and magnetic photo frames.

So, it's just paper?
Yes, it's paper! Each Quillkaari product is made by rolling thin paper strips tightly on a quilling tool, and protected with superstrong glue and acrylic varnish for durability.

How do you make paper durable enough to wear?
Each Quillkaari product is first put together with superstrong glue (the kind them carpenters stuck your dining chair with). After drying, it goes through three layers of brush-on as well as spray-on adhesive varnish, which makes the paper stiff and lightly lacquered.

And, erm, you are?
A dancer, an ex-journno, a woman who loves making things with her hands (and owns an earring collection large and mad enough to be included in her will), a shopaholic. Quillkaari is a collection of objects that I make because I can't find them in a shop!

And now for the Valentine Give away :)

Up for grabs is this pair of baby pink and off-white filigree heart earrings, “Floppy Hearts” with silver lining. A great gift for Valentine's Day -- 'cuz her love makes you go floppy all over!

These yummy, delicate beauties were created one fine sun-kissed winter afternoon... when love was in the air, clearly!

    Quilling is an art form in which strips of paper are rolled, shaped, then glued together to make designs. The paper is turned around a quill to create the shape like coil and then it is glued at the tip and then shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and hearts .

    Quilling or paper filigree is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The paper is wound around a quill to create a basic coil shape. The paper is then glued at the tip and these shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and various ornamental patterns similar to ironwork.

    Thank you.

  9. Hi!!!Thanks for this awesome giveaway.I have liked the page.

    Quilling is an economical craft that anyone, of any age, can take part in. You do not need vast amounts of equipment or materials to enjoy the craft of quilling. You don't even need much space! It could be described as the ideal craft.

    Basically quilling is the art of rolling, folding, twisting or otherwise shaping narrow strips of paper and arranging them to create beautiful designs.

    here are so many uses for quilling in our modern life. It is an extremely versatile craft.
    Perhaps the most common way to use it is to make quilled greeting cards for special occasions. What better way of saying "I love you" than by taking the time to create something unique and personal.
    Love your quilled “Floppy Hearts” .Hope to be lucky one :)
