It was Shakespeare who said "a rose by any other name would smell as sweet". These tiny roses are created with increasing size of  split rings. By  using  different colors on each shuttle the second half of the split ring has a tiny picot which  is used in the assembly.  You thread through  all those picots as you wind the rings/petals.  

I created a calyx at the end  with the green thread. I added three little beads to make it interesting I'd left the tails so that this can be added on to my summer project. 

This pattern is by Jeanne Lugert but I saw it on Ninetta Caruso's blog and used her pattern for the calyx.  The threads used we're just leftovers on a shuttle.
