"Ryan" has been sold, but please see our other listings for Beverly's fine work!
Pine needles intricrately woven around a large polished and cut piece of Royal Flamingo stone with druzy. "Druzy" is the crystalization within the stone and gives extra depth and life to this piece. Waxed hemp is used to weave the pine needles with fagotting stitch in the open areas. Pine needles have been dyed to a rich rust color.
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.
