Looking for a very unique, one of a kind, rare intricate gift for someone very special in your life? Or perhaps you would simply love to spoil yourself! PERSONALISE / CUSTOMISE your own unique handwoven pine needle spiritual healing basket with a gem/healing stone or object of your choosing!

My baskets are handwoven using hundreds of dried longleaf pine needles collected from my immediate surroundings on the Northern Rivers of New South Wales and Southeast Queensland region. After they are collected, pine needles are cured in the sun for a period of 6-12 months, and then prepared by washing thoroughly in boiling water so they are free of dirt or other organic matter. Each pine needle is then carefully handpicked, the best chosen to be woven into each basket, one by one. Baskets are stitched together using strong sewing sinew. For baskets with the addition of sculptural elements, I use a combination of cotton wrapping, Japanese / Czech seed beads, and around the outside rim, my handmade Southern Ice porcelain shell / leaf beads. Although delicate, each basket has been sealed with beeswax and clear lacquer for durability, and comes with a hemp hook on the back, so it can also be hung on the wall. Each basket is completely unique. Each has its own story to tell and no two are ever the same...

PLEASE CONTACT ME FIRST to find out what stones I currently have in stock and to discuss ideas. I am happy to also try and hunt down a particular stone of your choosing. Alternatively, if you have an object which holds personal meaning or value you would like me to use, as long as it has a relatively flat surface on one of its facets, it can be woven into the centre a basket. I'm OPEN TO IDEAS, please contact me to personalise your own unique handwoven pine needle healing basket! Any colour combination is possible!

For this price, the DIMENSIONS of the basket will be approximately ~10-12 cm tall x ~18-20 cm diameter (3.9-4.7 inches tall x 7.1-7.9 inches diameter).

* PLEASE NOTE the baskets pictured are EXAMPLES ONLY and not currently for sale as they are already with their loving owners.

For the basket pictured, please allow for about 5-6 weeks to be made. Time depends on the complexity of the basket; to give you an idea, it takes an about a minimum of 50-60 hours in total to complete a basket from start to finish (including the gathering and preparation of materials, weaving, drying, curing and sealing). A few examples are shown above to inspire you!

PLEASE NOTE that POSATGE COSTS for a personalised basket will be calculated according to the FINAL DIMENSIONS of the basket. Please CONTACT ME with your postcode to discuss an approximate quote. PLEASE ALSO NOTE that the postage costs listed below are APPROXIMATE.

Some countries have restrictions on what can be sent in the post in terms of plant based products. I can check the Australia Post International Guide; however, there is still a risk they may not make it through. As a secure measure, until I have tested sending some baskets in the post to friends around the world, the only countries I know where they have made it through are: AUSTRALIA and CANADA (currently investigating the USA and Europe).

For larger baskets, Express shipping will be calculated accordingly to your postcode. Please contact me for a quote.

Happy shopping and thank you for keeping art and the handmade alive!
