My sister just moved into her first apartment and I put together a housewarming 'kit'.  My family's always been pretty big on cloth napkins (you know, save paper... pretty fabrics) so I thought I'd make her some classy beaded napkin rings. 

They actually were perfect for weeding out some of my random solo beads.
Here's some pics:













And here's all five:


Comments and questions are always appreciated, thanks for looking!
Love!

Those are sooooooooo beautiful! Would you consider posting a tutorial? I would love to make some but I don't think they would turn out nearly as nice as yours. They really are classy!

Pretty, I love the multiple colors. Did you use memory wire?

I am not obsessed with Perty Thangs, I am disciplined...

I have alot to share, all you gotta do is ask.

 
Crochet, x-stitch, Ribbon embroidery, plastic canvas, beadwork, polymer clay, wire work, and now TATTING!!  Please help me learn to knit, then I might be complete.

Thank you guys soo much for all your wonderful comments!
Sorry it's taken so long to respond but I just got back from a mountain biking trip. 

I did not use memory wire.  I used regular 22 g beading wire. 
If you guys think you'd use one, I can start work on a tutorial right now...

Thanks again!

A tutorial would be great - I haven't done much beading but I would love to give it a try!
Thanks!
