Pine needles intricrately woven around a large polished and cut piece of chrysocolta, a member of the turquoise family. Ceramic beads encircle this beauty and artifical sinew weaves the pine needles together delicately throughout.
Beverly has mastered many art forms through the years, always creating, always learning. Her knowledge and skill for the perfection of the fine has now transffered over into her latest love: pine needle basket weaving and gourd pyrography.
Each basket takes its form que from the central stone it buillds upon. The stones are cut and polished by Beverly's husband with the highest care and knowledge of each stone being used. The long pine needles she uses are typically 15-24" in length. Beverly often uses artifical sinew to join the needles, but also will use waxed hemp to make her designs come to life.
