Small spiders that patrol ivy

I quite often see small pale-coloured spiders abseiling over ivy leaves against tree trunks.  Immature male theridiid was suggested as a possible ID from an image that I submitted to iSpot about a year ago*

Here is a second spider (female?) that I saw on Dec. 30th; it looks somewhat different i.e. the cephalothorax region appears translucent. Is it possible to say more about ID? I haven’t seen a larger version of these spiders on ivy.
