So I have been in the mood for creepy jewelry lately. This is the first of one of the many things being created in my craft room today. I found this black widow in my old apartment dead. I resined it a while back but couldn't figure out what to do with it. Today it hit me..I NEED NEW RINGS! So i painted the back with teal paint and resined the back lightly, then attached a plain ring to the back. I'm in love with it.

There are much more creepy creations in progress so today and tomorrow will be tons of new posts

Thanks! I am terrified of spiders. It's my biggest fear to get bit of have one alive and on me....but when i saw this dead guy laying on the floor I couldn't resist.

Yea, I love the teal color as well. It was originally clear and I feel the clear didn't make it pop as much as the teal did. I am way stoked about the turn out.

Thanks again guys!!!

I love the idea and the finished product, but I have to admit I was a little disappointed that it isn't belly side up to show the hourglass.

I would be deeply, deeply creeped the hell out to find one in my house, and I love spiders.  You don't usually die from a black widow bite, but it is not pleasant.

When I was resining it, I wanted the belly up as well, but the belly kept poking up out of the resin for some reason after numerous attempts of trying to finagle it to stay down. so I finally put it belly down. But I'm not too disappointed now because I have had this piece sitting around for a while and the hourglass ended up completely disappearing.

Yeah, as soon as I posted that it occurred to me that it probably faded.  It's very interesting.  I can't really think of anything you could do to prevent it.

Oh sheet. I couldn't make one of those no matter how much I wanted one. I wouldn't be able to touch the spider (dead or alive) in any way. I'd have the heeby jeebies the whole time and I'd probably cry. I'm a wimp. Bugs freak me out. But this ring is so awesome!

Ha, take that black widow.  I wish I could have done this with the black widow that bit me, but i smashed it instead.  Great conversation starter ring!
