I love the mix of using pretty fabrics and creating something a little dark and often a little scary.
Spiders are perfect for this mix as they are either adored or detested.
These spiders are made form vintage hand stitched tapestry's.
This particular spider is a plain powder pink all over and has a back plate made from the bowl of a vintage spoon. It has been hand engraved by myself and reads....
'Poison often arrives with a frill around it...'
She is a sturdy spider with a wonderful presence standing on her iron wire legs which are locked into position with lilac pearly buttons.
Flaws,patches and odd stitching are celebrated and are to expected.
Designed as a decorative object she is both charming and unique.
Would look beautiful on a dressing table,crawling over books or in a bell jar.
Can be hung simply from a ring on the reverse.
As the ring on the back of the spider can be a little distance from the wall simply attach a small amount of thread from the ring and she can be positioned easily.
She will be sent out recorded so can be tracked and signed for on delivery.
Nothing I make is designed to be given to a child/baby as they are very delicate items which contain wire and beads.
This spider is roughly 23cm x 23cm,I say roughly as you can pull or push the legs in to change the size and stance slightly.
The body alone is 8cm x 18cm so this is quite a big size for one if my spiders.
Thanks for looking!
This listing is for one spider, no photographic props are included.
I do not offer any engraving service unfortunately.
