Make your own fragrant sweetgrass and gourd necklace. Here's a fun basketry project I've developed and taught using the basketry technique of coiling. You'll carve out a small area to inlay the provided semi-precious flat stone bead into a prepared gourd piece.

The gourd piece is natural. The stone shape, color/markings will vary. Some stones are green and some turquoise. Shapes are square or round.

The kit includes: instructions, prepared gourd piece, sweetgrass, semi-precious stone, artificial sinew, brass finding, Irish waxed linen for neck cord, needle

Additional tools are not provided. A small u shaped gouge can be purchased from a craft store. A woodburner is optional as a sharpie marker can be substituted. Other tools and supplies are readily available in most households or easily obtainable.

Some coiling or sewing experience is recommended. This project is suitable for adults. The class using this kit was taught at North Carolina Basketmakers Convention and advertised as "All Levels."

I'm happy to answer any questions that you may have as you work on the project. My contact information is included. :)

This is an original project that I developed and still teach. The instructions are protected by copyright and meant for individual use only. Please don't use or distribute my instructions to teach.
