The Christmas Spider

Are your spidey senses tingling? I would like to introduce a very unique ArtFire shop specializing in Christmas spiders, Eye Spyder. These beautiful eight-legged creations are made of genuine gemstones, semi-precious stones, Swarovski crystals, pearls and glass beads. You are sure to find the perfect color combination, but if you have something else in mind, contact Eye Spyder and she will craft an arachnid just for you.

If you are unfamiliar with the German legend of the Christmas Spider, Eye Spyder recounts it on her site and provides a copy with all her spiders. Eye Spyder is remembering an old tradition to a new generation in a very creative way. You won’t want to squish these beautiful treasures, but use them for many years as you teach your children and grandchildren a traditional story that they in turn can pass on.

She works in Connecticut, ships internationally, is on Facebook, and has a website.


  1. WOW! I have never seen anything like these. They are creepy, AND really pretty. The pink and green looks so pretty. It shouldn't be a creepy spider LOL


  2. These are amazing!! Creepy crawly but so beautiful

  3. I got a lovely pink and green spider for my mom's birthday. I'm sure she will love such a unique gift.
