Smile Quills?

Heya,
so my 'lil Hedgehog Izzy has just starting quilling, and I was thinking about some creative things to use the quills for.

I was thinking perhaps a tribal necklace, or a couple of spiky fan earrings, have any other ideas?

Or is there anyone out there who has tried this and has some advice/warnings?

That's really creative! I never would have thought to do something like that! lol
I think you should make a necklace and some earrings! COOL!

I've used a lot of Inky's quills for tiny clay hedgies I've made. Using them for a necklace would be cute, so long as you don't poke yourself. I'm not sure how you'd attach them though.

A few on here have put some quills from their hedgies in a vial that is attached to a necklace chain, such as the on in this link: http://treasuresbyjody.com/yahoo_site_a ... 59_std.JPG You can most likely find these on ebay, at craft stores, or jewelry supply stores.

What we're doing is putting the quills and a picture in one of those photo albums with the sticky peel-back pages, so the quills don't fall out.

And here I was wondering if I was the only one who has saved the quills.
Have been trying to come up with a way to use them in an art project.
They were too cute to just throw out.

There's someone who uses quills to make pens. http://www.hedgehogwelfare.org/newslett ... me56_2.pdf

These were so beautiful, I'm a big pen freak and
would love to have one made with my own quills.
Must start saving more money

My carpet likes to collect them, and my foot likes to find them. :P

I love the pen idea so much. I've been saving Mildred's quills since she was 10 weeks old and I have quite a collection going.
