This necklace was made by Jan Wellington using one of my Native Shield design pendants. The spider design on the pendant was hand painted on a transferred design. This spider design originates from the mound builders of the Mississippian period. Jan combined the porcelain pendant with myrrh beads, old Egyptian clay mummy beads, a copper clasp and bicone spacers to create this striking piece which she named Guardian.
Jan mentioned to me "I hope you will make more spider pendants, since the necklace I made with it sold as soon as I listed it, and I miss it terribly!". I can see why this is a beautiful necklace. Don't you agree?
You can find more of Jan's work in her Etsy Shop Slickrock Beads
