Infinity Rose

And it's back to the beginning . . . with more maille. When Don posted his flower weave bracelet, my mind started spinning. I could just see little faceted white topaz stones in the center of each link, but how to make them stay there? I decided to bezel set them, and solder the flower links around the bezels. I debated many different ways of linking them together, and then finally decided to go back to the Infinity weave. It was the first piece of maille that I successfully finished, and it is a weave that I am very partial to! I had two links left over, so I made a pair of earrings to match.
