is backordered. We will ship it separately when it becomes available.
Incredibly, Spiders are built with a hydraulic system of compressed-fluids that enable them to move their limbs in creating magnificent webs. This amazing ability has inspired scientists and engineers in their endeavors. Spiders have a great design sense and can help awaken our creative spirit through their wide array of intricately woven webs.
Herbert Ration is a wonderful Dine (Navajo) silversmith beloved for his insect jewelry works. His latest offering is an approximate 2" long, 2 1/2" wide and 5/8" tall or deep, spider pin. It's handmade with love and care from sterling silver and delectable materials like lapis lazuli, shimmering moonstone, chatoyant tiger's eye, watery mother-of-pearl, metallic-like hematite, bright spiny oyster shell, happy turquoise and as green as grass malachite. Signed by the artist.
Energizing malachite cabochons compose the abdomen and cephalothorax of Herbert Ration's amazing sterling silver Spider pin. All handmade, its eight legs and turquoise eyes delight. A spider's web is a thing of beauty and provides a good example in that everything we do can also be creative and expressive. About 1 3/4" long, 1 5/8" wide and 5/8" tall. Signed by the artist.
