Spring Feverish

*sold

I must say, sometimes life just feels like it's too big for it's britches and keeping up with it, is a struggle. There are times when it feels like you're leaping from one mountain top to the other, and all you want to do is explore the valleys. Spring is in the air and my email seems to be ringing off the hook along with the real phone, I'm feeling the love and no, I'm not interested in attending my high school reunion :)
I made a couple of heavenly rings for etsy, all of my rings are a journey and these are no exception. I'm amazed by how accurately this peruvian opal depicts the sky, it's a wonderful, one of a kind (ooak:) stone and it needed just the right setting. I made her a little shrine which started off looking Spanish, like a lot of my work then..........


it took on a keen Tibetan look. I can feel the thunderous wind on the top of the Himalayan Range and hear the prayer flags tattered as they are, whipping, more strings being torn, happiness, longevity and prosperity becoming part of the universe.

*mountain tops are a good place to be sometimes..

I created an homage to the celestial night sky using a pillowy shaped labradorite stone to depict the sky itself........


I added a crown of stars, a planet in the center.....


*size 8


The birds are feeling it, spring.......


This little warbler drying off after a plunge, note the willow catkins, some have already burst filling the air with fairy dust, more prayers sent on a breeze.


The sycamores are budding out......


and the bees are pausing at every buttery opening.



Exhibit A : This is a doggie standing next to a dog. Note the size and shape, doggies are smaller than some cats. I liken my little doggie to owning a pet squirrel, a squirrel with manners.


Pookie of the hills is feeling springy too, you should have seen him go......



and in case you're wondering, yes doggies can smile :)



Here I picked some pearly everlasting for you, breathe in.......ummmmmmmm
Happy e a r l y spring,
xo Ro

  10. Okay. We have snow coming down as I type, but "Spring Fever" season has officially hit this area!!

    That Peruvian opal is simply dreamy, and I love the pillowy labradorite :o). No surprise that these sold SO quickly!

    Whether mountains, landscapes, plant pods, flower blooms, various forms of water, or the night sky....you, Ro, pay homage to all these things (and more!) better than anyone I know.

    So beautiful.

  11. I;m jealous of anything wet, watery or frozen, falling from the sky. I hope you're enjoying a good bit of knitting. I spent several hours in the garden, chopping yesterday.

    That opal, WOW, ooak!

    The songbirds are at full tilt, some are building nests. A jay was slamming the house so hard my dogs were going ballistic. i thought it may have been a delivery person. When I opened the door a scrub jay with a beak full of twigs exploded from a camellia near the front entrance.

    spring feverish!
