Halloween Spider & Pumpkin Earrings

About this design:

These earrings were made for a challenge on 1000 Markets called "Creepy and Crawly". I wanted to share with you as Halloween is coming up. I HATE spiders but thought making these might just help this phobia - wrong!

Represented is a mother spider watching over her 2 babies as they dangle from her web. The mother spider hangs from a web on the ear wires.

I also made another base for the ear wire that represents a pumpkin sitting on a web. These 2 bases are easily interchangeable.


The mother spider is a ceramic coin. The sterling silver ear wires have a smaller web from which she hangs. The baby spiders are sterling silver and dangle from her larger sterling silver wire web. The pumpkins are the alternate earring. They are made with a large orange Czech glass bead and a green teardrop. Again the web is made with sterling silver wire. Enjoy!

    Too cute, and that’s something ’cause I hate spiders, snakes, crawly things. :)
    They look a lot more “presentable” worked into your earrings!

    These are just too fun! What great earwires you made to go with the spiders and pumpkins! Do they wear well? Have you tried them? Inquiring minds want to know…. :D

    Cotopaxi Chickie Sue,

    The earrings are made with 20 gauge sterling silver that I hardened by hammering the ear wire and the webs. Neither earring bases are heavy so they hang nicely and are very easy to interchange the bases.

    Thanks everyone for your nice comments. They were fun to make even though I HATE spiders!

    I am afraid I would like both pairs in the store, and then only wear the pumpkins!!! LOL I totally get the “hate spiders” part, but these are so cute and perfect for Halloween. The Pumpkins would carry right on through to Thanksgiving time too!!! :D
