Pine Needle Basket created by Melissa Abbott during the Spring and Summer of 2014. Basket was begun in Merritt Island, FL, sourced with local Pine Needles
gathered there after a wind storm.
|The Very Beginning - Jasper Caboshon|
|Adding some Beads|
Amber, Red Glass Mariposa, and Carnelian
|Tools of the Trade|
Work continued on the basket after Melissa
returned to Gloucester, MA
|The Basket starts to create a bowl|
The Basket was finished during July 2014 in Gloucester, MA. The basket's needles were treated with a baked Glycerin bath for preservation which darkened them slightly. Crawford's Irish Linen Beeswaxed Thread was used with a Jasper Center, Amber colored beads, Red Glass Mariposa beads, and
Semi Prescious Carnelian Stone Beads.
