  • Quilled Jewellery is made with colored strips of paper which are rolled together and glued in order to hold its shape. They can be used to make a variety of modern designs which can be worn with designer sarees.

Both, paper and clay jewellery making are rewarding hobbies as they can be sold to make a pretty good profit for women. Jewellery making makes the person creative and innovative in their thinking. There are many benefits for women when they make their own handicraft jewellery sets.
