Scale flowers-Lily and lotus style by NikidaEve Scale flowers-Lily and lotus style by NikidaEve
Now, I've seen flowers everywhere but I've never even attempted them! These buggers are harder than they look if you don't buy the tutorials online or anything so I winged it. I usually design by trial and error to see what method I like using. These beauties are going to be made into a necklace but I have a backlog of scales to make them in any color!

Will post to Etsy soon, but these are made with handcrafted 1/8" red copper enameled links hat were handcut as well.
:bulletred: 9/64" orange links in aluminum
:bulletorange: 3/16" aluminum saw cut jump rings in orange yellow and red
:bulletyellow: 8mm golden aluminum jump rings
:bulletred: Large orange and red scales
:bulletorange: brass and red small scales

The big flower is 3 tiered, it also has 3 pollen stems that are made with painted glass beads in orangish red shades, and super tiny seed beads in red shine finish, a golden shine finish, and orange shine finish to make the pollen stems stand up. They only move slightly for when it moves with you and all flowers keep their form. No fussing no adjusting needed. They will retain the flower form for an exceptional addition to any outfit.

Prices will be set soon for purchase.
Colors in red, orange, brass, green, blue, purple, and pink are available along with silver and black stainless steel scales.

I really like the way you've made the center rings swirl like that, it's a really cool variation on the "mainstream" flowers. Love the colors too!

There are the few patterns out there with these but the ones with the circle so stand out like you said :D that's why I wanted to try these ones heh. Maybe there will be a new variation soon to make them even more interesting
