Keith Fenton’s filigree hummingbird pattern was the inspiration behind these napkin rings with place holders. The hummingbirds are cut from maple and the ring from mahogany. I used bamboo chopsticks for the shaft and attached a small peg purchased from a dollar store for the place cardholder.
Thanks for looking and comments are always welcome.

Beautiful cutting, as usual, Anna! What are the dimensions on the napkin ring it self? Like the additiion of the mini clothes pin! Thanks for sharing.

Thank you all. Your comments are greatly appreciated. Candy the napkin ring is 2” square and the hole is 1’’. I offset the hole slightly so that the whole thing would balance properly.
