Quilling is an art form where paper strips are skillfully rolled, formed and glued to create wonderful, vibrant images. This skill first became popular in the 16th and 17th century when French and Italian nuns and monks created ornaments for religious books and artifacts.
The second issue of the Quilling Art series features a handmade tri-colored bird perched on a tree branch. The half ounce silver coin measures an incredible 50 mm in diameter and is once again limited to 999 pieces.
