Chocolate and Silver Napkin Rings

Maple Leaf Napkin Ring

I’m swapping out some of my Thanksgiving table d├ęcor this year and going with a Silver and Chocolate theme. I was looking around in my jewelry making stash and had an idea for some new napkin rings.

Thanksgiving Napkin Rings

For this project you will need:
  • Stretchy Beading Cord ( I used Stretch Magic 1MM)
  • Focal Bead ( I used large chocolate colored glass pearls, available at craft and bead stores)
  • Bead Caps
  • Spacer Beads
  • Faceted Crystal Beads ( I used Jablonex)
  • Charms
  • Jump Rings
You really don’t need any jewelry making skills to make these. If you can thread beads on a string, you can make these. I didn’t even take pictures of the process…decide on the order you want them, string, tie off your stretchy cord ( I always add a drop of super glue to the knot). I added my charms using jump rings ( OK you need to be able to open and close a jump ring which is super easy and here’s a tutorial how from Jewelry Making Journal

They go fast and are easy to do while watching TV etc.

Now I'm thinking I really need to get some metallic brown and silver chargers hmmm...
