Christmas Rose Brooch

by: Nadine Foskin

Legend has it that the Christmas Rose sprouted in the cold, harsh winter from the tears of a young girl in search of a present to give the Christ child. Also known as Helleborus niger, the Christmas Rose is a tradition on European Christmas cards.

Begin by placing an 8mm round bead in the middle on your wire and twist a short segment beneath the bead. Now begin creating the stamens by stringing groups of firepolish, twistangles, 6/0 seedbeads and Swarovski pearls with twisted segments of wire between the beads. For each stamen, alternate the piece of wire used and tangle slightly with the previous stamen. Flip the piece over and begin adding daggers on twisted segments of wire. Repeat this process, twisting flat wavy discs on alternating lengths of wire. Twist and manipulate the petals, stamens and stigma into place. Twist the additional wire together and wrap around a pin back to secure.
