Alchemy Gothic Emerald Venom Necklace

I seem to be writing these posts all the time now! I've amassed quite a considerable jewellery collection (I blame the wishlist feature on GlitterGoth). Emerald Venom had been on my list for quite some time, but I never actually got round to ordering it until a few weeks ago.

I have a bit of a thing for spiders. Whenever there's a spider roaming the house (that hasn't been discovered by Thomasina) I tend to just hear 'Claaairreee get ittttt!' from my sister, who decided a couple of years ago that she is frightened of them. I actually like spiders, which a lot of people consider to be a little bit weird. My garden used to be full of them when I was younger (before we acquired Thomasina) and I used to sit and watch them. I can also remember putting one in my paddling pool because I'd read somewhere that they could swim and having to rescue it and put it back where I found it...I was a bit of a strange child! Not much has changed, obviously...

So, I was more than a little bit intrigued when I first saw Emerald Venom! I'd decided to buy more green jewellery after I bought the Westernra choker (here). It's a little bit larger than I had anticipated (I didn't check measurements again) and I was pleased to see that the chain is adjustable, and the spider sits really well. It doesn't feel heavy or bulky when it's on. Although the size surprised me, I don't think it would have the same effect if it was smaller.

It's a really beautiful piece. The green really catches the light (for some reason my camera found it quite difficult to focus on it) and it's such a unique and interesting piece of jewellery. It definitely gets noticed! I don't think I worn this and not had it mentioned, it's really wonderful. I don't think that you need to like spiders to like it either!

I bought this necklace for £29.98 from GlitterGoth.

Have you bought any jewellery recently? I ordered the Aurum Mortis ring (here) the other day, and it was dispatched this morning so I am anticipating its arrival in the next few days! I get so excited when I know I have jewellery on the way.

Disclosure: I bought this piece myself.

    1. It does have a tendency to look small on pictures! I don't think it would be as amazing if it was smaller, it really adds to the effect!

  2. It is big isn't it?! Hahah I don't think I've worn it without it being remarked on either, it seems like a marmite thing, people either love it or hate it and they're not shy to tell me! I've had an old lady tut at me whilst wearing it(!), but most people are in awe of it and tell me they've never seen anything like it! The stone is so pretty isn't it? Have I bought any jewellery lately?? I can't stop! Hahah the next piece I should be receiving is the Crepusculuna necklace, I'd been waiting ages for GlitterGoth to bring in that particular beauty! ♥

    1. I think it's size is what makes it so interesting! It is definitely a marmite thing - my Dad hates it but my Grandmother who hates spiders more than anybody I know told me how lovely she thought it was! Tutting at you seems a bit extreme though, haha! The stone is amazing, particularly in sunlight! Am I right in thinking the Crepusculuna necklace is the one with the little bats? If it is, that one is gorgeous! I still really want to quite Queen of the Night after you posted about it!

    2. I think I meant acquire instead of quite...it's been a long day!

  3. Hi Claire!

    I just love that necklace so much. I have always liked spiders as well and through the years have had and lost many spider pieces. The spider plus green and black stones makes this something that would be perfect for me as those are my two most favorite colors too.

    I have not bought any jewelry in ages but at the end of Sept. I am buying a new wardrobe and new accessories will be a must.

    1. Hey Red! This is my first piece of spider jewellery, it's definitely a unique piece! I really love it, the green stone in it is beautiful.

      I always buy clothes in autumn/winter too as it's so much easier to find things that I like!
