I'm making a handful of these little ladies; the mounted ones you are getting the exact one in the photo (no two mounts will be the same) but the unmounted ones are similar enough that I'm not taking portraits of each one individually. You will receive a spider very much like the ones pictured.
Cameo:The body of this teeny spider is a little hand carved shell cameo, made nearly a century ago, never used, and recently rescued from an elderly jeweler's cabinet. I have a handful of these, and I love them so. They are probably not haunted. I hand cut the spider to fit the cameo, which I prong set directly onto the body.
Dollface: I found these tiny faces while I was looking for the cameos; I bought these almost two decades ago, and I love them so much that I keep thinking nothing is good enough to use them on. That is SILLY. This is good enough for them. These tiny ceramic faces were handmade, and glazed in white. If I had bought them more recently, I would be able to tell you the name of the artist, but I bought them while I was still a student and I've lost the records, for which I apologize.
These are art objects. They are not toys, they are not jewelry. They are quite delicate and very pointy. THEY ARE MEANT TO BE MOUNTED. I have set this up an an option because plenty of folks are going to have some sort of object ready and waiting to mount a spider on, and you may prefer your own object. Maybe it's a teacup from your granny that you never use because you're too afraid of breaking it, or a bouquet of dried flowers preserved to remind you of a beautiful day, or you want to put it in the shadowbox with a pinned butterfly, or, more likely, something I would never think of. You will want to select something solid that will not be moved often; these are certainly more durable than a pinned insect, but not by a whole lot. I recommend e6000 as a bonding agent, though this will depend on what you are gluing to.
