Basket Necklace - Tohono O'odham
This handwoven basket necklace is by Tohono O'odham artists Della & Fred Cruz from Sells, Arizona. This basket is lidded with 2 sea shell dangles at the bottom, strung on a 28" leather cord. It measures approximately 3" high and 2.5" in diameter and will hold a small object or special treasure.
Plant materials are hand gathered from the Sonoran Desert. Coils are native beargrass and the split stitches are of sun bleached and unbleached yucca. Keep away from sunlight to maintain color variations.
