Announcement    Did you know? Bright Expectations specializes in traditional hand woven baskets, patterns, and kits. But the addition of contemporary designs featuring bases with acrylic pour techniques is HOT, HOT, HOT right now. You'll also find epoxy sealed coaster sets and vintage inspired jewelry featuring those same methods.

Baskets in my shop include many types, colors, and sizes having a never ending list of possibilities for their design and purpose. Enjoy browsing the "Ready-to-Ship" shop section for quick delivery options. You can always contact me for your custom basket requests too.

Basket weaving patterns and kits are available for all levels of weavers. Patterns (and kits) are based on my own original designs and concepts and are immediately available after purchase by digital download - no more waiting on snail mail to arrive. More patterns are in the works, so please check back often.

The "Weaving Supplies" section of my shop includes a variety of items and is where the acrylic poured and epoxy sealed wood bases can be found - when they are available. These sell out fast, normally within hours.

While you're shopping, check out the coaster sets. Hundreds of these have sold already. I'm now offering (unbreakable) wood sets as well as the original porcelain tile ones. Each set includes the wrought iron holder.

I love, love, love the vintage inspired necklaces - especially the key styles. Each pendant is uniquely handmade and is a perfect (inexpensive) gift for that someone special. And sometimes that "someone special" is YOU!

About BrightExpectations

Sales 3,651
On Etsy since 2012

For the love of baskets (and now fluid acrylic art too!)...

Shop members

  • Becky Bechtel

    Owner, Designer, Creator

    Designing baskets is a passion for me. I love weaving a basket to serve a purpose or a specific function - or simply as artistic decor'. Adding fluid acrylic and epoxy pieces to my shop was a wonderful fit. Marrying the two art forms was perfect!

Production partners

  • Sew-Ray-Me

    Dahlgren, IL

    Sherri (owner of Sew-Ray-Me) is a friend and entrepreneur with a custom sewing and stitching business. We collaborated on ideas and designs and she brought the tags to life. I couldn't be more proud to have her create these unique tags for me to offer in my shop to other basket weavers.

I welcome custom basket requests! Just message me your specifics and I'll be happy to work with you to weave just the basket you are looking for. I'll need dimensions, color, and pattern/design changes if they differ from one of my listings. Or just send me a photo of one you have found and I'll try to duplicate it.
