Handmade sterling silver spider. This was my sixth skills demonstration in school.

I used chasing and repousse as the crafting method for the first time.

Originally it was intended to be worn as a headpiece, which is why the spider’s stance isn’t quite realistic (unless it’s sitting on top of your head). Squeezing the pincers opens a lock that releases the back part of the body, which is a hinged box. Basically his butt falls off 😀
