Arachne Necklace


Arachne the weaver, who dared to challenge the gods, who stood up to Athena (Minerva) that her human skills were worthy of admiration from the goddess herself and was thus sentenced to be come the world's first spider.

The moment of her transformation is depicted here in a blue vintage cabochon of resin, set in sterling silver with spider and vines below.

Quenched in my Companion Quench - see the Alchemy page of the website for more information.

Hangs from a 24" sterling silver chain. Pendant measures 1 1/2"

Each Wayward Silver piece is handmade in my studio in Philadelphia, PA. I carefully select stones and forge each piece with intention and love. Most of my jewelry has been oxidized for contrast in the silver but each is newly made unless listed otherwise. Handmade pieces may show character of tool marks, slight imperfections, or other unique markings as a result of the labor.
