This is simple rose made from 5 pieces of 1.5mm thick stainless steel.

Cutting can be done with the angle grinder, or rotary tool like i did.

For shaping i used ball head hammer. Parts are soldered together with silver and flux.

Step 1: Templates

Here's the templates for cutting. Not perfect ones, because some of the shape is free formed.
But, those are somewhat good start.

Step 2:

First video shows the cutting and shaping process.

Best result comes with multiple smooth hits, instead of couple "big ones"
