About the Design

A symbol of giving, wisdom, and creativity, the spider is a creature whose contributions to the animal world are unique. I see them as creative builders, much like artists. Their art form is weaving, and the webs they create are a source of strength, protection, and sustenance.

—Kenneth Johnson

Kenneth Johnson Sterling Signature Bead & Black Spinel Necklace is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Necklace flips! I wanted to love this necklace, as the spiders are very appealing. But the necklace does not lay straight and the silver metal spiders turn and do not lay flat. As an avid jewelry collector, there is no reason to spend money on something that isn't right. Sorry, but this one is definitely something that won't work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A blend of sparkle and mystery. This necklace is light weight and has a clever blend of elegance and southwest look. I wanted a black necklace and was drawn to this when I heard the spider symbolism story. It is different from my other Southwest pieces. The spiders do not stand out unless you are looking closely at the discs. This necklace is a little mesmerizing to me with all the sparkle and the hidden spiders and the black spinels tucked into the discs. It has a great mysterious feel. I like it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Design is pretty but it constant flips. I love the look of this necklace and also the matching bracelet. However, the beads constant flip up sideways while wearing. I also had to return the matching bracelet for sizing being off, so wouldn't have had a set. I'm very disappointed, as Kenneth Johnson's designs are gorgeous, but wearability is most important.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from QUIET ELEGANCE Was immediately drawn to this necklace. Socked myself as I do not like or wear anything black and/or with spiders. Does not look southwestern at all. Have to look very closely to see the spider image. Caught the end of the presentation where the symbolizm was explained. A spider creates its own home and then etches out its life on its own terms. Loved it. Ordered the necklace and the matching earrings. The necklace is understated in contrast to the dramatic earrings. Love the set. Can see it being worn formal or casually. Will look for more of Kenneth Johnson designs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sparkly love I love this necklace. The spinel beads are so sparkly and the spider disks fill in a neckline beautifully. Only when you look closely do you realize the disks are spiders. So unique, well made, and beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FIT FOR MOTHER OF THE BRIDE! MY DAUGHTER GOT MARRIED IN OCT OF 2013 AND THIS WAS THE NECKLACE, ALONG WITH THE EARRINGS AND BRACELET TO MATCH THAT I WORE WITH MY LONG DARK GRAY BEADED ACCENTED DRESS AND JACKET. I RECEIVED SO MANY COMPLEMENTS ON THE JEWELERY PIECES. THANK YOU KENNETH. MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS KNOW I USUALLY ONLY WEAR CAROLYN POLLOCK PIECES, SO WERE QUITE SURPRISED WHEN I GAVE THEM A DIFFERENT DESIGNER NAME. THE SPIDERS WERE A SURPRISE AND HONESTLY..NO ONE REALLY NOTICED THEM THAT DAY, BUT WORE IT FOR ANOTHER OCCASION WERE I WASN'T MOVING AROUND SO MUCH AND THEY WERE NOTICED. WONDERFUL ARTIST.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Beauty This necklace is an attention getter. Definitely a beauty. The discs are well thought out. when they spin the design is on the other side. The spider design is so well done that most people would not recognize the spider at first glance. I like the fact that it doesn't scream spider but it is very recognizable. The black spinel is a good compliment to the silver discs. Overall this is an excellent piece of art while is very comfortable to wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from gorgeous! love it. The design and workmanship is exceptional. If someone is worried about spiders, the silver circles do not look like spiders. i agree with the other writer, I would LOVE to see a chain or cord with a larger carved spider pendant. I love the symbolism of a spider making his web and carving out his own existence. Spiders eat some annoying bugs, too. Then of course, there's spiderman. Aside from that, the necklace is truly a work of art and hangs beautifully around the neck. The stations give movement to the piece and don't spin around haphazardly. both sides are the same so it's three dimensional. nicely done.
