A real, juvenile black widow spider, that has been carefully preserved and electroformed in 100% copper with a hand-carved labradorite skull.
Black widows are found across western North America, and there are many myths surrounding them. Despite their ominous name, black widows are known as a rather shy spider and are only known to bite when threatened. Even their venom is not as dangerous as most people believe--they can choose how much venom to inject, and would rather not waste it unless their lives are in imminent danger.
This one-of-a-kind piece is dainty and delicate, measuring just over 1.5 inches in length. It comes on a thin 18-inch antiqued copper chain. If you would prefer a different length of chain or leather cord, please include a note at checkout.
All electroformed jewelry includes a copper care sheet as well as a jewelry polishing cloth to keep your piece looking its finest.
