Don't think I could wear this - urgh.  I don't like even jewellery spiders. Smile

It is a cool design still

Great memorial for Bert!  My DH makes me kill any spider that breaches the fortress of the house.  I try to sneak them outside, but he says they already know the way in and must be removed from existence. He also calls them man eaters.....

affraid I love it and would wear it everyday. I have 2 of them, love them!
We never kill them, but remove them gently our of the house... We say 'ragno porta guadagno' alias spider brings earning, so if you want money don't kill them... My Dh by the way refuses to touch them aracnofobia Laughing

I thought 7 years bad luck was for breaking a mirror? For squishing a spider you should be getting 7 years good luck for the good deed.

Great combo and a fine tribute to Bert.

Very nice!
Was Bert a pet or an unfortunate visitor? I would have flattened him too, but not by accident if he had bitten me.

I love your bangle so much! What a great idea! I enjoy spiders and watching their webs in the yard. But in MY house, they get murdered, sometimes I try and take them outside on a piece of paper, but usually it is murder.

He was a wild house spider that I stood on with bare feet, while making a cup of tea. I had watched him running around the house for about a month, but I thought he's not bothering me, I won't bother him. I actually named him Bert.

I had to flick my foot 3 times to get him off, yep, I squished him good.

Great Bangle! Very Happy The spider bead is one of my favourites, all year round!
Inside the house I rarely find a spider, the cats eat them up... but outside there are always some and I try to leave them, the cats love to watch them, however... they make quite a bit of dirt on the window sill ...spider poo is hard to remove...

By the way since panda posted of her spider bite a few weeks ago - and I had spider nightmares that night, I have a spidey visitor under my ceiling. Maybe it's the reincarnation of Bert, he comes out every night and is watching me right now from above and waits in his web for pray. I tried to catch him once but he immediately fled and hid himself under a wooden panel. But as unlucky as I had been trying to catch him, as unlucky he is as his web is still empty. I hope he starves soon. Razz

I never kill spiders, always catch 'em and put 'em outside.

For those afraid of spiders, I've heard that on earth you're never more than 5 feet away from one. (Not sure that's true, don't think there'd be any in the Arctic and Antarctic, but of course that's not likely where you all are... Twisted Evil ) heh heh.

I've been living with at least 20 mahoosive spiders for about a month now! I've gotten fed up with keep putting them out...except for the bath ones...every night before my bath I put one out the window, then the next night there's another one sitting in there! My favourite one was the other day when I was washing up and one suddenly peeked over the top of the bowl at me, cheeky so and so Laughing . I've had such an overload of them this year, they've been like permanent wall and floor decorations (sometimes they stay in the exact same place for days, I've begun to think of them as ornaments  Laughing ), I think I might have got over my phobia completely cheers

Luckily I love the TB spider bead too, I love his drapey legs Very Happy  and your bangle looks perfect, all graceful and sculptural pandabee I love you RIP Bert
