The cabochon ring is an embellished dichroic cabochon on a peyote stitch band. The gold and blue ring was from a design by Catharina Thomas, featured in The Beader's Handbook. You can easily make the embellished round into earrings.
That's why I really enjoy so many of the tutorials by Stephanie of BronzePony Beaded Jewelry. She's one of my favorite YouTube personalities and her tutorials are always well done and accessible. I really went to town last week-end making her Summer Daze earring design. I am a super duo addict to begin with so these were right up my alley.

Stephanie also offered a ring tutorial to complement the Summer Daze earring designs. This makes up even faster than the earrings and would be a really cute project to do with my nieces. I love the way she uses the super duos to make the band - very clever!
And here's a final ring. This is part of the Blossoms set by Melanie Potter, a kit I purchased in 2013. I had it so long, I lost the instructions and had to write to Melanie requesting another copy. It must be a popular item because it is still in stock and I am linking to it in the photo below if you are interested.
Here's the photo of Melanie's kit with a link to her web store in the caption.
