Buenos Dias!

Buenos dias senoras y senoritas! I've been traveling though Mexico in my studio, through village squares with tiled fountains, the blacksmith shoeing the horses, women sweeping the packed earth in front of their casitas, the scent of masa escaping from the arched windows and doorways. I did a lot of traveling though Mexico when it was safer to visit and I have a million memories to infuse in silver. Let me introduce you to some of the fine ladies.........

"Carmelita" size 6 3/4 "the garden", faceted cushion cut prasolite


"Estrella" size 8 "the star" labradorite oval





the golden hour (sigh)


*sold You may have seen "Crescencia" and not known her name, size 8 3/4 "grow", "thrive" Peruvian Opal


The stone is the color of a shallow clear reef





*sold "La Purisima" ("the virgin") size 6 3/4 turquoise from Jerome AZ



My Catholic roots are part of who I am. I spent many hours listing to the mass in Latin, frankly most of those hours were spent feasting my eyes on the art in the church, the statues, the red votive candles, flickering in memory of a loved one.


la mission


*sold "Esperanza" ("hope") size 7/34 kingman turquoise


for we all know that........ "hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul"
*Emily Dickenson





I just finished reading "All the Pretty Horses" and enjoyed an amazing adventure to old Mexico.


and I let the monkey out, now I'm wondering where she's run off to..........

If you have questions regarding this work, send me a convo on etsy or an email otherwise look for them in my etsy shoppe sometime tomorrow.

Have a beautiful day mijas and thank you for visiting, xo Ro sarita
