Native American Root Basket Necklace in Blue and Green
Maria Godines reveals her basket making expertise in the lovely miniature Native root baskets that she hangs on her beaded necklaces. The yarns used to weave this basket form royal blue ribs alternating with ribs in greens, yellow, and white. Elk buckskin, prepared by a taxidermist from Washington State and hand stitched into place by Maria, forms the rim of the basket. The beads on the necklace are made of bone, glass, and metal and are strung on artificial sinew, a synthetic material commonly used by many of today’s Native American artists. The necklace is 33 inches from end to end (without the basket) and the basket is about 1 3/4 inches high and 1 1/4 inches in diameter. Because of the length, no clasp is needed. This necklace can successfully be worn for any occasion.
