Paper Jewellery

Paper quilt jewellery made by quilling method by craft paper with various colour paper’s. Making paper beads is a traditional craft that goes back, in persian at least, as far as the Victorian age. Young ladies would gather socially in their dining rooms, whilst making beads from scraps of wallpaper rolled on knitting needles. They would then polish the beads with bees wax and string them on to long pieces of yarn. These would then be used to make door curtains to divide rooms. This practice was then revived in the 1920s and 1930s for jewellery making.
