A Gemstone Spider for a Brass, Rhinestone, Pearl and Wood Necklace Set
This product is currently sold out.
It was hard to give a title to this necklace set. The large 1.5" x 2.5" spider was won by me in an auction so little information was provided. From a visual, it appears to have a brass body with the legs shown as brass then rhinestones line the top of each leg. There are crystals for the feelers and a few at the bottom of the top faceted gemstone, which looks to be a dark red color but I have no idea what kind of gemstone it may be . The body of the spider is surrounded with rhinestones as well with a centered oval medium brown faceted gemstone. The spider dangles from the necklace via one brass ring which is set off-center. It sits between two very small wooden beads which connect to antique copper bead caps which are on both sides of cultured/freshwater light peach 8-9mm oval pearls - identically placed on both sides of the necklace. The sequence is continued with a carved wooden bead, another bead and another antique copper bead cap on both sides of a pearl. Then another bead which sits next to another carved wood bead, small wood bead and then bronze bead caps on both sides of another pearl. There is another Swarovski crystal which abuts to a wood bead with another small Swarovski crystal on the other side. Another wood bead segment connects to another brass bead cap on both sides of a pearl and then two small wood beads sit on both sides of a Swarovski faux 5mm round taupe colored pearls continuing to the antique brass dotted hook clasp. The earrings contain similar elements as the necklace and drop from antique brass ball end wired ear wires (lead free). I actually made the pearl and wood necklace first and then after receiving the spider, decided to add it to the bottom of the necklace. The body stone seemed to match the carved wood beautifully so decided that since they complemented each other ~ it was a 'take'!
The necklace measures 19.5" in length including the clasp. Add an additional 1.5" for the spider. The earrings drop .75" from the ear wires.
The design for this necklace was accidental, as explained above. I think it's pretty cool but to some, well if you don't even like the shape of a spider, you might be a bit queasy wearing it!
