This one of a kind pendant was made to show off an amazing labradorite stone that flashes purple, blue, and orange as well as a square cut of Boulder opal with all kinds of amazing colors depending on how you look at it!
I made this lady spider entirely by hand. I melted, manipulated, carved, fused, and shaped sterling silver sheet to make her. Her jointed and patterned legs are fused to her backplate except for her front two legs. Those two legs are used as prongs to help hold down her opal stone. The opal has a purple and pink pattern that shows all the time but will flash green, red, and blue in different directions. Her legs and body are entirely life-like and 3 dimensional. She is standing on top of her darkened silver backplate ready to walk away. Because of the manner that I made my spiders each one of them is entirely unique and one of a kind.
Below her and her stone is a labradorite stone that I carved with and amazing blue, purple, and orange flash that matches the Boulder opal similarly. The stone is being held safe by an upside down heart and dagger patterned bezel with some small etching detail at the top of the backplate. The entire piece was darkened black as night and then I sanded and polished it by hand to bring out bright silver highlights and make the sassy lady spider come to life.
The entire piece with the bail that hangs it onto its 18 inch long thick wheat sterling chain is 3 inches. The widest is 1 inch.
Each of my pieces comes to you in a sweetly decorated gift box making it ready to be given as a gift, or as a nice gift for yourself! One of a kind finished pieces are mailed to you in 3-5 business days.
