The book includes an easy-to-follow Materials and Tools list, detailed step-by-step instructions with excellent illustrations, beautiful close-up photographs of completed pieces, and finished size measurements. Unlike some quilling books that make projects look too complicated for the beginner, these designs are not only fun to create, but they are also relatively quick. Most of the pieces can be made in an evening.
The author uses standard 1/8″ (3 mm) paper strips with gold, silver or copper edges to give the work a look of metal filigree. (You can use plain paper as well, but the metallic edge makes the rings really shine.) The book is not only suitable for beginners, but it will delight any experienced quiller as well. The book includes a wide variety of projects, from simple rings and earrings to more intricate bracelets, necklaces, pendants and brooches. The rings are the most time consuming, while the pendants and earrings are very fast.
To start, the author shows you how to make an outline circle out of two pieces of black/pink paper using a slotted quilling tool. Then, she shows you how to make the interior honeycomb shape of an earring. Finally, she explains how to assemble the two shapes by stacking them and pinching them together in your hands. The result is a delicate and lovely pair of earrings. The book also includes several other projects, including a simple pendant, bracelets and necklaces, and a couple of flower designs.
