Beaded Jewel Spider - Mr Grey
Beaded spider handmade by Love Gorgeous owner Gabi Innocent. Each of these pretty little spiders is a one-off. Spiders are considered lucky and many people have a great affinity with them. The Legend of the Christmas Spider even tells the story of how tinsel came to be and in many countries Christmas is not complete without a lucky spider. Of course they aren't just for Christmas, but a lovely decoration or gift for arachnophiles all year round.
The Valentine's spider is a special spider symbolising the love between two people and a good luck charm for their relationship. My original poem can accompany your Valentine' spider on gifting it to your loved one.
The Valentine’s Spider
The love spider has us trapped in its web
the more we wriggle, the deeper we get.
Resistance is futile, love can’t be fought
two hearts together as one it brought.
Gossamer strands have bound us tight
invisible glue through dark and light.
Cocooned in spider love and care
our happiness no harm shall fare.
Although Mr Grey is not strictly a Valentine's spider as the body is not heart shaped, he could perhaps still be a gift for a loved one at Valentine's and can come complete with the above poem.
Mr Grey is made using a grey Tibetan clay bead with silver decoration for the body, silver lined Murano lampwork bead for the head, clear crystal rondelle, silver coloured alloy beadcaps and bead . The legs are predominantly charcoal with silver plated facetted hematite beads and silver and cream accents.
Murano beads are prized for their rich colours, luxury materials and highly skilled craftmanship. As such spiders featuring them are a little more exoensive.
