ArachneMachina 'Pectus' makes her home on and about the chest, but she likes hats, neckties and handbags as well. Whether you call her a hat pin, lapel pin or tie tack, this unsettling Steampunk RoboSpider pin is a sure-fire head turner! From my exclusive ArachneMachina® line of spider jewelry and accessories. Every good Steampunk can use at least one good 'minion' or 'personal SpyBots'*, right? Certain to attract attention wherever you go; they're a can't-miss-it bit of freakishly steamy whimsy, and no two are ever alike!

These clockwork spider bugbots* are my pride and joy and labors of love, meticulously crafted from scratch, by my own hand, one at a time. The abdomen on this individual spider is one of my hand cast Ice Resin cabochons, choc full of gears & bits from defunct mechanical watches. The thorax 'power source' is a bezel-set Clear AB vintage rhinestone cabochon, glowing and luminous with the glorious Aurora Borealis colors. It is NOT an EYE, but my camera is black and the reflection looks a bit like a pupil.

The armature with legs is vintage brass with a hand torched patina, polished to a shine and then coaxed into a lifelike 'on the prowl' pose, one leg at a time, and the eyes are hand made from sterling silver wire. The underbelly is silver plated brass filigree. Nobody sees it when you are wearing it, but it's the little touch that means so much. The pin hardware is nickel-plated brass, post & clutch style. Soldered construction, excluding the resin abdomen; that bit is glued.

Approximately 1-1/2 by 1-3/4 inches.

Each piece is numbered in consecutive order; this pin is #029 in the series, with a signed Certificate of Provenance bearing a clear photo and description and laminated so you know you are receiving a genuine ArachneMachina wearable spider sculpture.

Like all my jewelry, this piece was hand crafted by me in my home studio in Tacoma, WA.
