Because everyone needs their own little sterling silver spider wax seal necklace, the little spider at home on his/her web.
- description -
The spider, an 8 legged arthropod with fangs capable of injecting venom.
Did you know that the female spider is typically much larger than the male? Or that they're symbolic of female empowerment?
It is said that the spider represents a strong feminine energy, creativity, patience, balance, strength, manifestation and wisdom. Having 8 legs and a body shaped like the numeral 8, the spider is symbolic of infinity.
Do you know the folk tale of the Christmas spider?
A widowed mother was too poor to afford Christmas tree decorations, so friendly spiders visited and spun elaborate webs on the family evergreen tree.
When the children awoke on Christmas morning and the mother opened the curtains, sunshine hit the webs, turning them silver and gold - this may be the origin of tinsel.
From then on the family celebrated good fortune.
