A couple of nights ago I asked my niece what she thought I should make next. At first she suggested a fairy. I searched high and low for a fairy that looked like it would lend well to quilling and the more I thought about it, the more I realized that part of what makes a fairy interesting is their face. Faces are really difficult when quilling unless you are making something huge and can put a lot of detail into them. I wasn’t prepared to spend a month working on a fairy, so when she mentioned a Hamsa Hand, I was immediately curious.

Finding inspiration for Hamsa Hands is very easy. All you have to do is a quick Google image search and there are hundreds to look at. I decided on a thinner, taller hand and filled in the detail where my imagination took me. This was the first time I’d cut out a colored background for a piece and that actually took me several attempts because I tried doing it in different ways.

The image above is actually a little premature because the glue hasn’t finished drying so some glue spots are still visible. In a couple of hours they will be completely invisible. But, I wanted to get a post up tonight so figured I can always take a new shot later on.
