Tiny stuff

I have this ginormous stash of quilling strips. I have never really taken it up seriously but I bought them with some ideas in mind that I never implemented. Plus they are coloured paper! Enough said.

I took a few strips from that stash with the hope of making many many items. I managed to make 1 pair of earrings before getting distracted. I consider this a win, though.

As I was making the second of the pair, I wondered what was the smallest quilled object I could make. I don’t mean an individual component, but rather an entire entity. I don’t think that came out right. What I mean is, a single coiled circle isn’t counted but a tiny flower is.

So I went about to make a duck. I made one and tried a second smaller one. I stopped there because I realised that my own fingers are my limitations. I need an instrument, like forceps if I intend to attempt a smaller duck.

I’ve made several earrings in the past. I don’t know why since I rarely wear earrings. Perhaps I can use them as a gifting item. Anyway, here are some of my creations combined using my wicked MS Paint skills.
