Illustration Friday- "talisman"

My Illustration Friday submission for "Talisman"...I have been trying not to post prior work for illustration friday submits, but for some strange reason, I haven't been able to come up with anything that I liked for this subject! {which is weird if you know me- I am a believer in good luck charms and a collector of my own "talismans"} I tried three times! However, I have been ill this past week which makes me very uncreative, which then makes me grouchy! 
So this is a pattern that I created in college and although it was controversial because of the spiders, it has remained one of my favorites!  I think it represents "Talisman" perfectly- it makes me think of stumbling upon a treasure trove of vintage jewelry in an attic, covered with dust and scary spiders. {dream come true}

Beautiful pattern design. Mezmorizing like a talisman.

I love this - especially the subtle pinstripes in the background. I can see it as a skirt!
