JEWELED SPIDER WITH WEB
Prism Patch's Jeweled Spider with Web is an original design and looks fabulous positioned in the corner of a window or an interior doorway. The web is constructed from clear textured art glass with hand sculpted web filigree accents. It is finished in a black patina then waxed creating a balanced contrast with an elegant modern feel. The textured glass that is used to make the web is eye-catching in both high and low light environments making it a wonderful home accent for day and night. The smooth solder lines and inclusion of decorative solder pearls where the hand cut glass pieces of the web meet enhance the overall appearance of the web. It truly needs to be seen to appreciate its beauty - the photos do not do it justice.
You can choose from four jewel-toned colours for the spiders oval body: ruby, sapphire, amethyst or diamond. These ovals are polished German faceted glass jewels that add depth and elevate the stylishness of the design.
The web filigree and spiders legs are created from twisting various gauges of copper wire together, hand sculpting each shape and cutting them to length before soldering them in place.
Since introducing this design a few years back, the Jeweled Spider with Web has become a consistent top seller that transcends age groups and occasions.

How you may say are spiders my garden friend? Spiders are fabulous beneficial insects that capture in their webs and then consume the plant-eating insects and their larvae that would otherwise feed on the flowers, fruit and vegetables in gardens and farmers fields damaging plants and destroying the crop. So while I may not be a fan of them in my house, spiders are a welcome guest in my garden as are their intricate and deceptively fragile looking webs.
