Inspiration for my Orb Weaver Spider Pendant
Spiders were always going to have a place in my collection. I happened to find an Orb Weaver Spider in exactly this pose, and that was it, I had found my model.
Spiders have always scared me. However, I remember a nature programme where an expert admitted his spider fascination stemmed from a desire to quell his own phobia. Similarly, to overcome my own phobia.
Once I had finished this Spider I couldn’t resist making a set of earrings and a version with a web it hangs from!
