Thank you so much! I started beading over a decade ago, but nothing I have ever made has been to this degree! I have a toddler so it took about two weeks total to finish and I hand beaded everything. My Black Widow I am not a 100% happy with but for a first try I am happy.

You have all inspired me so very much! Thank you so very much for such wonderful comments. I always have loved jewelry making and now that I'm a Stay-At-Home-Mom, I've found I have the time (sometimes  Cheesy) to really blossom and expand my art!

Then I recommend you give it a go. It was so long ago that I was in a craft store and on the cover of Bead & Button, which I saw for the first time there was a beaded orchid and I said to my mom, "I want to make stuff like that!" And I still have that issue of that magazine....

Thank you so much for the comments!

Thank you so very much! Your words really mean a lot! It's one thing when your family and friends say you have talent, but to have it come from fellow crafters it really means that much more! We have it on display in our family room for now!

 Smiley Thank you so very much! I hope you do take it back up! I took a break for a while before making this... And I'm so happy I got back into it! Now the ideas are just flowing out of me for new ideas!

Thank you, Thank you to everyone who commented and voted! It really meant so very much to me! I have been beading so long and this really pushed me into a new level and kind of beading. Thank you so much again!
