I'm not sure whats up with me and crochet lately, I do it ALL THE TIME. In class, at work.... its a habit! After my Tiny Fruit earrings (which I swear I'll write the patterns for soon - i promise!), I'm obsessed with tiny crochet.

So I made a little flower out of emboirdery floss, just for kicks. Then I went into the studio to work on my project for class... and broke it 3 times. So in my frustration I made a flower ring, to make me happy. Its easy to make if you have basic metalsmithing skills.



The band is sterling. I attatched the flower by soldering some tubing onto the band, placing the flower over the tubing, and adding a sterling silver "washer' I made with a hole the same size as the tubing. Then I secured it by riveting it all together and smashing the tubing with a hammer and a scribe to make it mushroom out over the washer.

Here's the pattern I used for the flower:
Size 4 crochet hook, embroidery floss
Round 1: ch 2, sc 6 in 2nd ch from hook. Join with ss.
Round 2: (ss in same stitch, ch 4) 1 time in next st. (ss in same stitch, ch 4) 2 times in each subsequent stitch
finish off, weave in ends
