I am quite excited about this quilled peacock I made recently. I had always wanted to make peacock with quilling. I enjoyed innovating by using mirrors with paper quilling strips to create the feathers of the peacock.
I got inspired by the ethnic mirror work of India, where they use mirrors and embroidery threads to create amazing clothes and art pieces. It took a lot of time to roll individual strips of paper around the mirrors but I really love the result and am sure you will see a lot of this technique in my future projects.
Hope you liked it. Do visit our shop Navanka Creations at Etsy.
