Itsy-bitsy spider

The summer is near, and as usual we get hundreds of spiders in the basement. Some of them are small, but some get pretty big. I am not afraid of the spiders, but my daughter has a serious case of arachnophobia... Every time she sees one, she starts screaming for us to come down and get the thing out of the house.
The spiders inspired me to make this sterling silver spider web pendant. I saw the design online a while ago, now i decided to try it.

I searched etsy for more spidery designs and found some high-end spider-themed jewelry creations by juliakaytaylor and by Master68UK.

Some spiders that I saw in the etsy shops are surprisingly cute, like these crochet creations by CrochetandCrafts and by tisana

Some spiders were made of recycled materials, like this ecologically-sound critter made by ecohead

Well, spiders are not just for Halloween!
Have a great day!

It's my Birthday!

It is my B-DAY! Now I am officially old! But at least I've some gorgeous flowers from my husband! And it is a glorious day in Connecticut!

These flowers reminded me of the coral bracelet, which I made a while ago. I really like working with corals. However, I need to be in the right mood to wear coral jewelry, it may be too overpowering :)
Hope everyone enjoys this wonderful day as much as I do!

So i started blogging...

I didn't think I was the blogging type!

However sometimes i feel that I have thoughts and ideas I want to share with other people. Well, i could share them with my family, but they couldn't care less about my jewelry creation hobby. Not entirely true, my 16 year old daughter took a jewelry making class. She can use a torch and knows what flux and pickle mean to the metalworking community :)

Often i make jewelry during TV shows. This is so-calle "quality time with my family" when they can watch whatever they want, and i can quietly wrap wire around gemstones :)

This is a small piece I made during House episode on monday. It wasn't my favorite episode, anyway!

A small pendant i tried yesterday, but it still needs work. And i still have work to do, bills to pay etc. Not enough time to refine my little creations. Oh, well...

Thank you for viewing!
