I often try to make little animals that many people stick their noses up at. I want to make them come across as sweet, approachable, and darling because they are! Spiders are so often, sadly, misunderstood and my hope is that some of my jewelry pieces help to change that. I cannot imagine that anyone could wear this necklace without it being seen. It is so sweet and I hope that others feel that way as well.
This little 8-legged lady has tiny fangs, spinnerets, and joined little knees. She is looking down at her stone and mostly hidden among the cherry tree branches and tiny 3 dimensional cherry blossoms. The branches are craggy and twisted while holding this entire piece together. It is connected to a sterling silver chain and hangs about 22 inches long. The pendant itself is 3 inches across and 2 inches tall. This entire pendant was made from recycled sterling silver sheet that I carved and shaped from molten metal. The spider and flowers were not cast, but instead carved and shaped by my tiny tools and hands. This is a one of a kind piece for those of us who love nature and the animals in it!
The spider holds onto a white water plume agate in the center keeping it safe. Looking closely at the stone you can see all the feathery plumes that give this stone it's wonderful name. These water plume agates come from streams in eastern Oregon and make such beautiful center pieces to jewelry.
All of my pieces come to you in a sweetly decorated gift box making them perfect for gift giving, or as a nice surprise for yourself. Already completed one of a kind pieces such as this necklace are mailed off to you within 3-5 business days.
