"These Napkin Rings go well with Fiesta Dinnerware"

I gave these napkin rings as a gift to a lovely friend. The bright colors and beautiful handwork look beautiful with my friends Fiesta Dinnerware bevy of colors. But think of the color added to your table with a vase full of sunflowers and these napkin rings contrasting with your white dinnerware and napkins! Beautiful!
