Moorish Rose Chainmaille Handflower

I've always wanted to make a handflower, or slave bracelet, but never had the chance, until now!

This is a small patch of Moorish Rose, 7 units of Mobius, with a mix of colorful glass farfalle beads in the center of each.

This is a similar technique as my Moorish Rose Cuff but with farfalle beads.  Btw, I think it's possible to use wire techniques with either farfalle beads or any 2-hole beads to inset the beads without beading wire.  But that's a different story for another day:-)  Now back to the handflower.

Does this picture look like a little bunny?  LOL!  I thought so.  But here it clearly shows how flexible this handflower is.  It has long loops in Spiral 4 in 1 that can fit on just about any finger.  The long bracelet section has lots of Mobius units to fit up to 8 inches, like so ....

I'm quite pleased at how this handflower turned out.  A marriage of ancient romanticism and futuristic modernism.

This Moorish Rose handflower is available for purchase in my ArtFire shop.
