Spiral Wire Flower

This small flower is made from round spiral wire petals. The first layer has 5 petals, all of which are made from two colors: yellow and red. The second second layer has 6 red petals. The center is a cream colored wonder bead.
The molla (spiral) wire is 0.3 mm (28 gauge) which was wound onto a 1.3 mm (16 gauge) wire.
The technique of filling a small wire coil with thread can look very lovely when used in jewelry. For an example of this method used for earrings, please see Magpie's Mumblings.
Also, please visit Graziella Tanti's website. She has lovely examples as well as instructions for sale on her site.
