It starts with my own stoneware pottery base in a bronzy brown and white design. Pine needles were collected responsibly from storm downed branches. The light green dried needles are unusual and considered primo in baskets because of their fineness and fragrance.
The glass beads in bronze and copper tones are added one by one on each stitch as the basket takes shape. A double row in the interior and one on the inside rim add a nice glow. Peacock and coppery feathers accent the rim, complimenting the colors in the basket.
This oval basket is approximately 5 3/4" x 5" x 1" high, signed tiny on the bottom.
