Pumpkin Patch Tarantula Necklace


This tarantula necklace is based on the very striking and wonderfully named Pumpkin Patch Tarantula, one of the smallest of the tarantula family.

Cast in sterling silver, the spider can either be mounted facing directly upwards or positioned at a slight angle. The decision is yours.

It comes mounted on a sterling silver spiga chain which is adjustable between 16″ and 20″.



Inspiration for my Pumpkin Patch Tarantula Necklace

Spiders, and particularly a tarantula necklace, were always going to have a place in my collection. The Pumpkin Patch Tarantula, as well having a wonderfully endearing name, is amongst the smallest tarantulas. In addition, its lovely sectioned body, striking markings and being not too hairy make it a good subject to do in silver. I particularly love the form of it’s underside – which makes a lovely hiden feature for the necklace.

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, I intended to model a tarantula ring.

However, I somewhat overegged what size I could get away with for a ring (oops!), therefore my tarantula ring became a tarantula necklace. I am not disappointed with my mistake… he is becoming a bit of a talking point!

If you’re an arachnophile, you can pair these with one of our resident Orb Weaver Spider Earrings
