...A damsel with a dulcimer
In a vision once I saw:
It was an Abyssinian maid,
And on her dulcimer she played,
Singing of Mount Abora.
- Samuel Taylor Coleridge, 1772 - 1834, poet
Excert from "Xanadu - Kubla Khan"
Here is a bracelet to stir the senses, inspire romance and femininity, and bring out your inner poet!
Created with the fabulous lampwork artistry of Kerri Fuhr and framed with carved black onyx and rose quartz. This is a one of a kind creation for a one of a kind lady! (And, aren't we all?)

The spider, dropping down from twig,
Unfolds a plan of her devising,
A thin premeditated rig
To use in rising.
And all that journey down through space,
In cool descent and loyal hearted,
She spins a ladder to the place
From where she started.
Thus I, gone forth as spiders do
In spider's web a truth discerning,
Attach one silken thread to you
For my returning.
-E. B. White
Written to his wife Katherine from a hotel room.
Long before he wrote Charlotte's Web , E. B. White wrote this poem as a love note to his wife. It is this type of inspiration that has me making beaded spiders. Not that I am particularly fond of spiders. Rather, I am fond of how something many find terrifying, can be looked at as beautiful and romantic.
I've made many spiders, including one specifically for the poem above. This little pretty, "Frostbite", is one of my most recent. She is quite elegant and hardly tame.
