This spider pendant by Michael Anthony Cheatham of Echota Cherokee of Alabama has a textured and oxidized background. There are many stories throughout the Americas about Grandmother Spider. In Cherokee culture, Grandmother Spider brought light to the world by stealing it from the other side of Mother Earth and also bringing fire to the people. There are also many stories about Spider Woman teaching the people how to weave, for the obvious reason!
