Hypersthene Spider (see back)


Hypersthene looks like a cross between labradorite and obsidian. It shimmers in the light between black and a dark chocolate brown, and its pattern resembles woodgrain! Set in sterling silver, this piece hides a spider just starting to spin her web. 2″ tall including the bail.



This is a handmade piece of art: As such, it may display the quirky uniqueness that mass manufactured items lack. Enjoy its imperfections as proof that it was lovingly born of my sweat, tears, and (very rarely) blood.

Caring for your jewelry:

Sterling silver, copper, and brass will all tarnish and take on a patina over time. Your personal pH, environmental factors, how you store your jewelry, and how you care for your jewelry all make a difference. Avoiding exposure to chemicals (chlorine, etc) will reduce that change. Gentle cleaning with a silver polishing cloth should restore your piece to its original state.
