Spiders

Gorgeous beaded jewel spiders handmade by Love Gorgeous owner Gabi Innocent. Spiders are considered lucky and many people have a special connection to them. Although people typically associate spiders with Halloween, they are in fact a popular Christmas decoration in several Continental European countries, as told in the Legend of the Christmas Spider, and can be used for decor all year round.

Spiders can now optionally be attached to a stickpin so they can be worn as a brooch, hatpin or even hair accessory.

Apologies if available stock for sale is limited, these usually sell quickly and I have little time to make. If you would like one in a colour you can’t see please have a look at some past makes in the gallery https://www.lovegorgeous.co.uk/spider-gallery for inspiration, let me know colour(s) / style(s) you like and I will make one for you. Please note they are all one-offs so I can make similar but not same as the ones shown. The beads will vary dependent on stock. Turnaround for bespoke spiders is currently 1-2 days. Typical price is £16.50/£17.50, higher if premium beads such as Murano or similar artglass is chosen and/or lots of crystals incorporated.

Beaded Jewel Spider - Niklas

Beaded spider handmade by Love Gorgeous owner Gabi Innocent. Each of these pretty little spiders is a one-off. Spiders are considered lucky, with many people having a strong affinity with them, and even thought to have been the inspiration for tinsel decoration for Christmas, courtesy of the legend of the Christmas spider. I named this spider after St Nicholas, celebrated on the 6th December, as the colours remind me so much of the Christmas period. This beautiful spider features an opulent, richly coloured Klimt inspired mosaic gold millefoile Murano glass lampwork bead for the body. Murano glass is prized throughout the world for its craftmanship and rich, vibrant colours. The head features a rich red semi opaque crystal bead atop an antique gold beadcap. The legs are a colourful array of vibrant red and gold seed and bugle beads, plus electroplated AB hematite beads. Spiders made using Murano glass beads are more expensive as the cost of the beads is higher due to the luxury materials used and high quality craftmanship.Spiders can now optionally be attached to a stickpin, allowing them to be worn as a brooch, hatpin or hair accessory. Stickpins come with protectors. Standard length is 6” minus a small loop at the top to allow the spider to be attached, shorter lengths can be selected below. If you are planning on using it as a hair accessory you may prefer to have the sharp pointed end cut off and filed down. Please get in touch if this is required.
