Rose Fairy's Wedding

Wild Roses . . . My first leaf bracelet was big and bold, fit for an archer-elf; this one is small and delicate, perfect for a rose fairy's wedding. Made from sterling silver sheet and wire, with a single freshwater pearl, this cuff is hand fabricated, using techniques I learned many years ago while making silk flowers. Thanks, Hiromi-san! I still remember all of your patient, and thorough, lessons. The wild rose is only 2 cm in diameter, and the leaves are no more than 2.5 cm long. The filigree on the bracelet is a mere 1 cm wide. This is a very, very dainty bracelet!

I love to switch gears while working in series!
