Spiders

Gorgeous beaded jewel spiders handmade by Love Gorgeous owner Gabi Innocent. Spiders are considered lucky and apart from being used as Halloween decor are also used as Christmas decor in several Continental European countries. The legend of the Christmas spider is even rumoured to have been the inspiration for tinsel as decoration for Christmas trees.

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 below for inspiration, let me know colour(s) / style(s) you like and I will make one for you. Please note they are mostly one-offs so I can make similar but not same as the ones shown. The beads will vary dependent on stock.
