Well not literally.. but I am still working on my line of spanish ladies and they are all named after my aunts.. which happen to have very particular names .. I've made Mirania

And this one is Filena.





Made with sterling silver glass, lucite and freshwater pearls..  I really wanted to do something with her hat after seeing a movie based in the 1930s where girls use to hand stitch pearls, silk flowers to hats it's so beautiful.. well I gave her a little decorated hat..


Then I gave myself the task of making more earrings and these came out..

Pearls and Garnet



Little rose posts




This ring was made with a piece of jasper that has lived in my bench since 1993... (exaggerating)  Wink


So you can use it 2 ways the stones sits on your finger while the band is low in your ring..(hope I make sense)



A little pinky ring with Garnet too..






And last but not least a little bouquet of flowers holding a 12mm pearl..





This is what I've been up to .. need to buy more silver Christmas is around the corner! Cheesy

Thank you for taking the time to see this!
