Doing the Split

When I saw muskaan's post  showing her exploration of Randy Houtz's Split Self Closing Mock Ring, I had to try it. I fiddled:
It's not very difficult and has a lot of possibilities. One thing I'd like to use it for is to do a version of the leaf braid with flowers:
I think I like the josephine knot best, but the little picot flower would also work. 'Onion ring' braid? My first attempt is scruffy, but it shows the possibilities:
Muskaan created a really spectacular bracelet using a modified version of the technique.  So there's more than one way of doing the split.

  6. Absolutely love your experimentation ! The flowery braid looks great! The segment with Josephine knots looks like a cactus in bloom, doesn't it?

  7. Wow, is that "just" fiddling? I wouldn't have created these beauties even after three hours of intense concentration! I particularly love the little picot flowers, so pretty!!!
