I actually finished this one earlier this week. This is the same pattern as the scales thimble, with just some changing of colors. There's a little bit of the 3D effect I was looking for, but the colors don't help too much with that.
Mold 50 mm; thread: #9 silk Orizuru thread; 12 sections.
I'm having trouble getting my divisions even on the ring. I'm not sure if it is a measuring problem or a stitching problem. This ring also has to be groomed, stitching adjusted, so the cross-overs are all in the middle.
These guys are so small that I'm finding it hard to see how they turn out until I look at the picture, if I can get a good picture, and by then it's too late to fix mistakes. I'll keep plugging away at them, they are as addictive as temari (and quicker to make!).
