Shell baskets

My most recent shell basket:

It is made of waxed linen, yellow and red cedar bark, and beargrass. 

Clamshell Rattles-1 1/2" to 4 " across

Abalone Shell Baskets

Cedar bark, wire, waxed linen and NW sedge

Abalone shell button, about 3" across, with knotless netting

Dyed lauhala leaves, yellow and red cedar, beargrass, and waxed linen.  About  8" wide

Quote of the day:  “Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”   Ralph Waldo Emerson


  1. i am stunned by the beauty of these, how you integrate materials with the lovely shells.

  2. Each one of these weavings is beautiful, and also the Emerson quote!
