The overarching theme of the 2019 Halloween Collection is 'Alchemy & Divination'
This piece is part of the Entomancy Mini Collection
This real spider was loving saved and posed by a friend, but the abdomen was damaged. I replaced the abdomen with a teardrop rainbow moonstone, and after much painstaking preparation, she was successfully copper electroformed, although she only has 7 legs. She is posed with 4 legs raised, with the remainder posed on her filigree web. Photos don't do her justice, she's so three-dimensional it's hard to get a good photo of her overall form.
Pendant: 1.25 x 1.5" (three dimensional height 0.75")
Chain: 17.5", accented with beaded gemstone chain in a mixture of pyrite, peach moonstone, and grey moonstone.
Entomomancy is a form of augery, is the art of divination by the appearance of actions of insects.
