Senorita Rings

I had a very good weekend which included breaking tortillas with friends, getting a lot of work accomplished and going on a ten mile mountain bike ride with my brother. We rode up the hills and draws, we rode out deer and bursts of quail in what felt like an early spring day. I haven't ridden in a long time and I was afraid I would be sore today but I just hiked Banjo and I feel really good with the exception of being a little saddle sore :)
My poor husband is now the one with the sore throat from hell, fever, aches. I'm hoping I don't get it. This virus is a creeper, it seems to take a long time before it crawls inside but it's deep rooted and once it has you, it's a tough one to shake.

I'm making senorita rings , the first one finished here is a beautiful girl hosting a Peruvian Opal square but there are more on the way.


It's time for the Churro to stop playing with that naughty little monkey and get back to the job I hired him on to do.
*New rings previewed here on Wednesday.

Until then, do good work and keep a smile in your heart.

      You're right Churro has put on a few pounds since the holidays ;)
      My poor mister, thank you for the advise, I made a big pot of his favorite split pea soup too.

  6. Ooooooooh....Peruvian opal {swoon!} That is one of my *favorite* stones. Your ring is just beautiful!

    {Oh Senorita, you know how to make our heart sing!!}

    Fun to picture you out biking it! Stay healthy, Nurse Ro, and please pass along best wishes to Eric for a speedy recovery from that nasty virus.

    P.S. BAD monkey!!!!

  7. Like the curio is going to contain Belle for long...she'll stage a dramatic break-out and mastermind an escape in the wagon of her faithful companion, Churro--and your rings will scatter across the countryside...a lost treasure....

    :-)

    Okay, really, this silver maiden is just so beautiful, in a quiet, steady way--hint of a flirt. I love her--looks like she wants to dance, Ro!!
