Art & Jewelry
8 Legged Arts is named after the creepy crawly muses who seem to like me more than I like them. Spiders in many cultures brings luck. In Native American culture it is Grandmother Spider who created the world.
I create at my in-house studio, energized by alchemy, magic and nature. I use such materials as reclaimed leather, found items like keys and gears, vintage beads, gemstones and chains.
Making each piece sui generis.

My jewelry creations are an extension of my appreciation for found objects. I love to play with keys, leather, chain and incorporate the unexpected in wearable art.
