The beads are of glass and made by yours truly – ok the other yours truly, Vicki. Vicki got tired of making the traditional jewellery with her beautiful beads and decided to make some spiders. There is a story to them, a Christmas one if you can believe it. But I (stole) took one, an orange one, orange is my favorite color and hung it from my rear view mirror in my car. It is super cute! These are great as sun catchers, Christmas tree decor (you have to google the Christmas spider story), or your car! Those are just my suggestions – feel free to display however. Just enjoy them!
