This lovely pair of Japanese style chain maille flower is by Lauren Anderson, otherwise known as The Chain Maille Lady on Etsy. She calls this the Pink Passion Flower earring tutorial. She uses enamel coated copper rings and rubber rings to great effect.
Marilyn Gardiner's Japanese Flower tutorial and you'll see what I mean. She has a different way of starting the Japanese flower than Lauren's method.
This star like flower tutorial using colored anodized aluminum rings is by Lunabellvarga on Deviantart. She also has an Etsy store called The Rose Maillery. Her use of different hues really makes chain maille far more interesting than using only one metal.
I have no idea why it's called that but the Reverse Tao is a more challenging weave. Fortunately, there is a very clear video tutorial by FalloftheNoldor using big rings. You'll have to click on that link as I cannot embed it here. She also has an Etsy store called Maille Mosaics.
Fuschias are one of my favorite flowers so it was delightful to see Culturejewelry's fuschia flower inspired tutorial!
