Longleaf pine needle basket with freshwater perals and sliced black walnut shells.

Longleaf pine needle crafting dates back to Seminole Indian culture and from the Florida Everglades and the Coushatta Indians from Alabama.

I was never interested in basketry in general until I saw a pine needle basket for the first time. The artisan thought me basic stitches and my imagination went on.
My baskets and pine needle sculptures won prizes at jurried art shows and blue ribbons at craft shows.

I use the old coiling method, bind the bundles of de-capped pine needles with strong nylon thread, intergrate sliced black walnut pieces and/or other decorations, then I shellack finished baskets for luster and durability.
I use only natural materials for embellishments: walnut slices, amber, freshwater pearls, and/or semi-precious stones.

This basket has five sliced black walnut pices, four on the rim (1" x 1" each) , one on the bottom
(1 and 1/2' x 1").
It has eight freshwater pearls ( about 5/8" x 5/8" each), white and shiny.

This basket is: 11" (28 cm) diameter top edge,
5 and 1/4" (13 and 1/2 cm) diameter bottom
3 and 1/4" (8 and 1/2 cm) high

Basket can be used as a decorative centerpiece, bread basket, "my stuff" container, jewelry holder, and for anything you want. Basket can be washed with cold water if it gets too dusty.

Excellent unique gift for June weddings, Mother's Day, and graduations!

With this order I include a free, small surprice gift from collection of my crafts.
