Handwoven Pine Needle Spiritual Healing Basket ~ “Ruby Zoisite”

This little canoe-shaped basket is handwoven using hundreds of longleaf pine needles I collected, cured and dyed myself with black tea so they have a slightly sunburnt tone. Woven in the centre of this basket is a little Ruby Zoisite stone. It is stitched together using burgundy, grey and black sinew, to match colours found in the stone, with the addition of turquoise seed beads flowing from the centre of the basket. Woven around the rim, is the addition of turquoise beads on the inside and green jade beads around the outside.

Woven like a Native American-style canoe shaped basket – an homage to Indigenous weaving from my home in Northern Alberta.

Although delicate, it has been sealed with beeswax and clear lacquer for durability, and comes with a hemp hook so it can also hang on the wall.

Three-four weeks in the making and estimating a minimum of 30-40 hours of work to complete it, to give you an idea of how much time was involved in weaving this basket.

Dimensions 6.5 cm tall x 14.5 cm diameter (2.6 inches tall x 5.7 inches diameter).

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.
