Quick shipping and great material. Although I expected it to be a bit more darker in color, it's still a stunning tie.

Pricey. But, worth it. Lovely patriotic scarf which is just so nice and lightweight to wear any time of year.

About

Perfection is spooky!

I here present you my works inspired by myths and legends related to female mysteries.

My first collection Arachne is dedicated to spiders. They symbolize female power, creativity and wisdom.
I've always thought of spider web as being very inviting, mystical and meditative.
I purposely haven't put spider image on any of the scarves, because I want to suggest that women who wear it do have spider powers of their own and are an actual spider/owner of the web.

Kteis is a Greek word literary meaning shell or vagina (as opposed to Phallos) and it is commonly used meaning Great Mother or Goddess.
It summarizes everything I crawl to, spirituality, creativity, art, femininity, beauty and mystery.

I hope you will also find those in my works.

    A goth version of Andrej Pejic. Hiring him was a must :o

    Maker

    Well, she was once a pretty lady who knew how to weave rugs. Apparently, goddess Athena became very jealous of her skills (virgins can be so strenuous) and turned her into a fugly creature. Though beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    My dear friend and model. And, yes, she and Cat Woman are related!
