This is a very satisfying project - the result looks a lot harder than it really is! Once the basic rose has been made, it can be used as is for a pendant or earrings, or in a more elaborate piece. The intermediate, smaller forms can also be used to make rosebuds for other jewelry. There are many ways to make this project your own.
