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!


  1. I empathize with your daughter but that is a very stunning pendant :)

    I recently found a silver origami spider pendant on Etsy, but I think that one would feel a little too real for comfort if it slid across my neck!
