Favorite Friday and Fabulous Links!

Cool blues and blue greens are running through my mind as I stare at the glass pearls mix I'm working with and drawing out a design. I'm thinking of a ring to go along with the necklace design. Here are some inspiring ring designs on Etsy for today's Friday Favorites....

Blue Transparent Ladybug Ring



Satellite Turquoise Ring



Las Palmas Porcelain Ring
