I decided to do a little Realms tribute piece for Halloween. Holy Symbol of Lolth in Labradorite. Powerful Third-Eye stone. Big juju. Have a look, PM me if you're interested. It is still a work in progress. Gonna add a bunch of beads, 8 specifically. It will be a prayer Mala (Buddhist Rosary).

It is cool. I didn't look at it before because I first saw this post at work, and a lot of stuff is blocked out.

I also like all the knots in the cord the pendant is on.

They are, sleyvas. Ebonized oak. I use an alchemical concoction to turn them black. Iron acetate (steel wool dissolved in vinegar) and quebracho bark tea. The iron acetate reacts with the tannins in the oak and the quebracho pumps them up so it's not just a surface treatment.

Thanks, y'all. I also did a Selvetarm piece. Labradorite also, with gun-metal and titanium hardware.

Very nice! I like your spider, and the skulls are a cool touch!

It's well made, but it looks more like a beetle with extra legs. What was the reference image?

I disagree, it looks very similar to some spiders we have here in Brazil. And I'm a biologist, had close contact with them.
