DescriptionThis handflower I attempted to design after a picture of a Trillium. Don't know how well it turned out... The white beads are Moonstone, the red ones in the center are Garnet, and the brownish ones at the middle of each edge are Tiger's Eye. I strung the Moonstone on silver, and the other stones on copper. The bracelet and finger loop are both silver Byzantine segments joined by single silver rings.
The silver that I used in the Moonstone handflower was 20 ga, with the wristlet and finger loop being 22 ga. The ring size I used was, if I remember correctly, 12 gauge (I used a 12 ga copper wire as a mandrel).
