~Napkin Rings~

One of my recent library books had instructions to make beaded napkin rings. I've been wanting to try my hand at a beading project, and it looked like a good beginner project. Pictured are the first two I made.

I bought enough beads to make a set of four, and I'll have plenty of beads left over to make other projects with! I haven't made the other two yet.

I am pleased with how they turned out. I do need to get the wire ends turned a different way though, because they will snag the napkins otherwise.

I didn't buy any beading tools, and the only wire cutters I could find around our house were our needle-nose pliers that happen to have wire cutters in them.

I love them, do you remember the name of the book?

Have you ever crocheted with wire? I want to try that next.

Maybe why you can't get all those other books read is because you are too busy creating?!

Those are so beautiful, they look red like rubies! Of course, my eyes aren't all that great lately, but that's the first thing I thought when my eyes first hit them. Soooo pretty!
