Handcrafted from an antique wax seal from late 1800’s France, this talisman features a spider going after a fly. Just like the poem, The Spider and the Fly by Mary Howitt published in 1828. The first line of the poem is "'Will you walk into my parlour?' said the Spider to the Fly." The story tells of a cunning spider who entraps a fly into its web through seduction and manipulation.
This is a cautionary tale and a good reminder to be cautious of those who use flattery and charm to disguise their true intentions.
The spider is an ancient symbol of mystery, power and growth.
This fine silver talisman is a 5/8” round and hangs on a 18" stainless steel baby ball chain that closes with a ball chain connector clasp. Other types of chains are sold separately.
