Beaded Flower Napkin Rings Instructions Designed by Cheri Carlson
Sometimes the smallest touches make the biggest impact. Such is the case with these beautiful beaded napkin ring holders that will add a glimmer of elegance and fun to your table. We chose pink and green, but you can choose any color beads you see fit.
Step One: Cut two 10-inch pieces of 20 gauge silver non-tarnish artistic wire. Use a pair of needle nose pliers to bend one end of the wire into a loop, creating a stopper for your beads.
Step Two: On one of the wires, string a 4mm Swarovski XILION bicone in ruby, a 12mm Swarovski faceted round in light rose and a 10mm Swarovski margarita bead in fuchsia. Continue stringing the wire with Toho round 8/0 beads in luster black diamond/opaque yellow lined, leaving just enough room to string on an 18mm Swarovski orchid pendant in olivine, a 12mm Swarovski margarita bead in rose ab and a 4mm ruby bicone. Finish the wire by bending it as before. Make sure to leave a little bit of slack on the wire so that you'll be able to shape the wire later.
Step Three: On the other wire, string a 15mm Metallite™ antique silver flower bead and a 6mm Swarovski faceted round in fuchsia. Continue stringing the wire with Toho round 8/0 beads in gold-lustered green tea, leaving just enough room to string on a margarita bead in fuchsia, a 12mm Metallite™ antique silver tulip bead and a 4mm Swarovski faceted bicone in rose. Finish the wire by bending it as before.
Step Four: Bend your wire to create a loop big enough to fit your napkins through. Then finish the napkin holder by twisting the wire around itself so that the ends are pointing in opposite directions. Whether you choose to use both wires in your napkin holder or just one wire is up to you.
