That is beautiful! How long did it take you to make?

The rose took two hours to make, I cut the discs for the petals out of 1.6mm sheet witha hole saw and then guessed and cut four slots in towards the centre tacked it onto a 6mm rod and used a cross pein hammer to draw the petals from a 1/4 out to a 1/2 circle then just bent them around with a pair of long nosed pliers. I used the oxy acet torch for my heat source.

That's a neat rose. New Zealand variety. Thick petals that are frost resistant! :)
