Could you use soldering to hold the pieces together?

I have never tried to solder steel, but I think it would be possible.
Making the rose from copper sheet pieces soldered together would be quite easy.
However, if you don't have access to the welder, I would consider using some two compound epoxy to glue everything.
Also, have a look at this instructable https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-a-Metal-Rose-Without-Welding-and-Forgi/
