About this design:

This is an upper arm torc that I created from more than an ounce of sterling silver wire ( not counting the mistakes and do-overs) It was not intended to be a spider piece but as the rest evolved it became clear that the spiders wanted to live there. A little flash of Labradorite and voila! a stunning piece for a specisl evening or event!


Sterling Silver, Labradorite

    Wow Shannon! Great work! Don’t you just love how the wire has a mind of its own? Many times, what I thought of doing, ended up turning out totally different and fantastic, just like your arm torc. Great title!
