Well I saw the challenge when it was posted and I envisioned this garden scene necklace with a web and a 3-D black widow spider coming off of it and here is what that idea became...




Here is the spider closer up and I even included the hourglass on the underside! The spider is made out of beaded beads! Using Delicas and size 15 seed beads.



The leaves were all made one by one out of various seed beads and each leaf alone took about an hour to make. Then After attaching them to a black bead string base I embellished it with Czech ladybug beads and Beaded flowers with Swarovski centers.


The "web" on the right side of a Hematite donut is made with various seed beads, fresh water pearls, and Swarovski crystals and pearls. I used a strong magnetic crystal encrusted clasp for the closure. Also the last leaf even has a little "bite" taken out of it with a ladybug near by!



I really hope you enjoy it and I would love feedback!
