I created my first basket in 1999 using a technique that I've dubbed basket weave. This technique makes the sides of the basket so stiff, that many believe wire is used. BUT it's just beads, lots of them, thread, and technique. For more details about the book, check out The Beaded Basket on the book page. As always, thanks for your interest in my work.
