Beaded Jewel Spider - Carminia

Beaded Jewel Spider - Carminia

Beaded spider handmade by Love Gorgeous owner Gabi Innocent. Each of these pretty little spiders is a one-off. They make lovely unusual Christmas decorations and are a great gift for arachnophiles, or prank gifts for arachnophobes.

Spiders are considered lucky and even thought to have been the inspiration for tinsel decoration for Christmas, courtesy of the legend of the Christmas spider. Spiders can come with a little card explaining the story of the Christmas spider, interpreted in my poem below.

Carminia is a derivation of Carmen, a name I chose because this spider reminds me of a flamenco dancer. This gorgeous spider features a large transparent glass bead with floral decorated red inner body, a silver alloy bead with red crystal band for the head, silver alloy beadcaps and a sparkly clear AB crystal rondelle spacer. Legs feature red, gold, silver and iridescent black glass beads plus crystals.

The Legend of the Christmas Spider

Once upon a time at Christmas...

A poor family down on their knees

Went to the forest to cut one of its trees

With no money for decorations to spare

The tree would sadly have to stay looking bare

But a little spider had hitched a ride

And tried his best to stay out of sight

When up went the tree the spider began

spinning a web, back and forth he ran

Come morn the sun made the silken strands shine

Shimmering in shades of Silver and Gold oh so fine

The family on waking looked on in awe

Not believing what their weary eyes saw

They felt oh so blessed and realisation struck

From then on they would only have good luck
