So this is a small sample of the type of beading I do, mostly my current favourites like beaded spiders and cuffs.

Most witches don’t believe in gods. They know that the gods exist, of course. They even deal with them occasionally. But they don’t believe in them. They know them too well. It would be like believing in the postman. T.P.

omgosh Athena ! How intricate and stunning. Pray tell, what do you do with these 8 legged Bling-Blings..... these Artsy Arachnids ??
Wonderful talent, Athena of the Artsy Arachnids, Weaver of Beaded Bling Blings. What do you do with them, after creation ? ( hint hint )

"The truth about the world, he said, is that anything is possible. Had you not seen it from birth and thereby bled it of its strangeness it would appear to you for what it is, a hat trick in a medicine show, a fevered dream, a trance bepopulate with chimeras having neither analogue nor precedent, an itinerant carnival, a migratory tentshow whose ultimate destination after many a pitch in many a mudded field is unspeakable and calamitous beyond reckoning." - Cormac McCarthy

I'm dying with love for those spiders Athena! Very very impressive and lovely to behold. I have quite a few (harmless) spiders around the house up in corners and what not helping with the real pests that like to show up from time to time. They honestly give me the wiggins, but I feel I do the same to them so we just stay out of each others way. I do appreciate them on so many levels though and would love to gift them with an item like that as a sort of tribute for all their hard work round the house.

I have them occupying my home all over the place lol I put them up for Halloween and they sort of just stuck around looking pretty.

Oh! That's gorgeous Athena!
I actually have a couple of these from several years ago, as well as a scorpion made the same way. I didn't realise they had a Cherokee background, mine were from an English craft market and I (and my Mom) thought how beautiful they were. I'll have to look into that history now that I know it exists. Would a beaded scorpion also have that kind of background, or just the spiders?
