The flower is a three ring segment of single spiral (aka a three ring mobius unit), which is the most basic unit of spiral chain. When the flowers are joined together by connecting pairs, the result is Flower Chain. When the flowers are joined together by byzantine segments, the result is Byzantine Rose.
Flower Chain spirals gently over the length of the chain so when used for earrings, it's nice to spiral the flowers one way for one earring and the other way for the other earring, so that the earrings frame the face symmetrically.
These are the instructions for the Flower Chain and the ring sizes we recommend. Multiply the rpi (rings per inch) figures by the number of inches of chain you want to make, then use the Rings pulldown at the top of the page to order them. Or just get the kitpack.
As with all of our work, we invite you to make and sell as many of everything as you like, but ask that you don't publish our instructions or ring sizes.
