Have you tried pretending to be on the phone?  If she comes around and you can see her before she gets to your desk pick up your phone quick like you’re dialing out.  Put your cell phone on silent if you must and call yourself, pretend to talk about business stuff.  Hopefully she’ll just walk on by.

I use headphones to deflect conversation in the office. Even if you don’t keep your music on, people see them and usually don’t disturb you. I’ve even gone so far as to “let them know” when I have my headphones on, it’s because I need to focus and finish the task at hand.

@ddavila2001:  this is a good idea but i have a feeling her co-worker’s rude enough too pull out one side of the earphone to talk or pry the headphones off.

@MrsD41503:  I have a few coworkers like that and I wish I knew how to get some of them to just leave me alone.
