Byzantine Rose

This is an example of a Byzantine Rose Earring.

In addition to the straight Byzantine weave it incorporates a mobius or also called, “Rosette” which is a chainmaille unit where 3 or more jump rings are linked together forming a rosette-like shape resembling a blooming flower.  The Mobius is unique because every rings goes through every other one creating a ‘layered’ effect.

These were made using 18 gauge .925 sterling silver handmade rings and sterling silver ear wires.
