I love how this one turned out. I would also like to say that I created all the bead work, but actually the beads were once two necklaces that I discovered at huge discount.
The second I saw the necklaces, the basket was being created in my mind. A few days later I went in search of the perfect material and quickly discovered this fantastic ocean like batik fabric and immediately fell in love.
I brought the fabric home, set it beside the necklaces and it wasn't long before I was wrapping the cotton cord and sewing the basket together.
Today, after many months of thinking and coming up with nothing, I finally gave this basket a name, 'Aqua Sea.' It reminds me of the ocean and the colorful fish that swim and dart in and out of the sea anenomes.
I think this basket would be perfect for displaying all on its own, but it would also be quite a pretty display with small glass floats.
This new basket will be posted to my new Etsy shop, "Angelina's Creative Spirit." Stop by and see what I've been creating.
