Paper Quilling is a form of craft art where a long and narrow strip of paper is rolled and combined together to form different kinds of shapes. During the Renaissance period, English and French nuns started using paper, a valuable and precious item at that time, to decorate religious items. Within that long history of Paper Quilling, many diverse techniques have been compiled and knitted together, making it one of the most widely loved and enjoyed craft arts in Europe, America, and now Japan. By combining Paper Quilling and Art Clay Silver Techniques, a new Silver Accessory form, “Silver Quilling”, is born.
