Pattern Description:

In botany, blossom is a term given to the flowers of stone fruit trees and of some other plants with a similar appearance that flower profusely for a period of time in spring. That is exactly what these are. Little blossoms of sparkly crystal centres and fire polished petals. Unlike a real blossom, these blossoms flower all year round and never fade.

Each blossom is then joined to each other using linking rings with a seamless joins to form an undulating chain of profuse blossoms.

The entire parure consists of a bracelet, earrings, pendant and necklace. Make a pair of earrings. Make a bracelet. Make them all. They are guaranteed to bring a smile for an everlasting spring.

The tutorial contains instructions for all four - the necklace, pendant, bracelet and earrings.
