Spiders can trigger terror, yet there are some positive associations and beliefs about them.
According to 17th century folklore in the US, if you kill a spider that is on your clothing, you destroy the gifts it is weaving for you.
The origins of this belief perhaps come from the UK, where a very common spider, known as the money spider (Family: Linyphilidae) is said to bring good fortune to those it lands upon.
While the Black Widow is venomous, and no one would want to give a real one a ride on her blouse, I've made this hand-embroidered spider on her leaf just for you, the spider lover. Wear her on your clothing as a brooch with an accompanying leaf in your hair as a hair clip.
A set of alluring leaves.
Layers of fabrics and embroidery will enchant you. A red leaf of sumptuous cotton/polyester blend, backed with felt, machine-embroidered veins, a deadly black widow spider and more details hand-embroidered over this, plus wire stem to add a realistic touch. Another leaf (with no spider and soft stem) completes the set: wear them separately or together. Brooch clasp on the back of the red leaf with spider, alligator clip sewn onto the back of the yellow leaf, clip it into your hair.
Dimensions: Both leaves: 2.5 x 2.75 inches plus a 1.5 inch stem. (7 x 5.5 cm + 3cm)
For Hallowe’en, yes, but not only!
