Hey Mr. Stafford --
I DO like spiders and snakes.
Regarding the spider -- he's an awesome handmade antique. He was the decoration off of a late 1800's/early 1900's silver keepsake box --rare and FABULOUS!
I had to seal the spokes of his web armature very strategically so he wouldn't poke -- they were very sharp. He's sterling silver, and his web is spun silver --a very significant and special part of the creation!
The other significant piece was probably a showgirl dress buckle from the 1920's/30's. Oh la la!
Now maybe you'd reconsider your affinity for spiders too? And I'll see if I can change your mind on snakes one day . . . in fact, such a creation is already in the works! Then we can ALL be Jim's dream girls! :)
