This jewelry tutorial through a comprehensive guide and easy to follow step shows you:
- - Forming basic flower shape
- - Bending and fusing petals
- - Making bezel with pin and soldering
- This tutorial can be made in a standard smithing workshop. You will need:
- - Metal : silver or gold or other
- - Round gemstones
In this tutorial I am making a small set of rose earring studs with a center gem set bezel as stamen.
The actual size is about ten millimeters in diameter, and because that is relatively small to photograph. I combined the pictures with a larger example made of silver. This make the details easier to see.
You could experiment with size and layering to bring some of your own elements into this design once you've conquered the basics as illustrated with the rose brooch.
This rose brooch is made following the this tutorial concept.
This message is from Ronke : "I sometimes ago purchased 2 sets of tutorials from your site ( how to make roses and how to make eternity ring) I have to say those two tutorials have been very useful for me most especially my roses, my skill level has improved when making roses so I am looking forward to this new tutorial; I just purchased. Regards, Ibironke "
This is an excellent example of how Ronke has taken the skill she learnt, added her own design and flair to make this unique rose jewelry set.
Lisa wrote to us : "I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your rose earring tutorial. I found it to be very complete and easy to follow. It's nice to have this option to add to various pieces. I modified it to contain a center stone and made a pendant; see the attached a photo.
Again, thank you for sharing your skills.
