Spiderwebs and spiders have fascinated and terrified humans since our earliest myths and legends. Native Americans respect the spider as the "Grandmother" in life, as she brings together in her web all peoples and tribes. The Asante tribes of Ghana gave their tales of the Trickster Spider-god Anansi to West African, Caribbean, and American folklore. Not only has the spider's strong web been spun into military gunsights and lovely silks for gowns, but webs have long been used as antiseptic bandages for wounds.
This .925 sterling silver openwork teardrop pendant is a wonderful reminder of the complexity of life and her meanings. Wear it as a beautiful single pendant, group as dramatic links, or festoon with gems and woven wire for a more complex look.
