I was just in awe when I saw that necklace. My favorite colors are green and blue, I only wear silver, opal is my birthstone and - yup - I love spiders. :heart:

... with her own silver web and one sparkly dew-drop! Lovely!

I actually wondered how we could incorporate a lot dew drops into a web. We currently haven't figured out how to make it look right. When we do you can count on seeing one in the future:) Thanks.
