So I've been browsing the site for a while now and finally decided to post a recent project.
My mother likes formal dinners with cloth napkins, this means she needs napkin rings.  She likes for everyone to have their own so  I came up with this.

There are six people in my family so we needed six colours.

Below is a close up of what they look like on the ring.


I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place but I did knit them with wire, it makes sense to me.

By the way, everything I've seen on here is amazing.  It makes me want more hours in the day.

Thanks.
The wire was just some plastic coated wire from walmart that I've had lying around for ages.
My mom actually hasn't seen them yet, they're for her birthday which is next week.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to present them?

Those are really lovely. I've seen a book on knitting with wire, and you definitely make me want to try it out!

As for presentation, you could devise a little sectioned-off box, like the ones that glassware comes in, with a little compartment for each ring. If you decorated the box, too, it could double as storage for them later on.

They're really pretty!  Perhaps you could place them in a clear cookie type jar or glass container.  That way, your mom can display them on a shelf instead of storing them in a drawer or cupboard Smiley

Approximately how many beads per napkin ring did you use?  I like these because they're not "too beady".
