I have been quilling since before Christmas last year and started this new venture on making pendant necklaces. It started out with the paper ones then I got the idea of using metals. Yes, Metal quilling. The paper ones are fun and whimscial but some are afraid to take a chance on paper that they are fragile. I seal each one with clear acrylic spray. They are not water proof but I think they would hold up fine if taken care of properly. I hope to be making more soon and I hope you all will like these and start buying them. Thanks till next time LC singing off!!
