Product description:2001. Vintage metal-ribbed egg basket with a variety of wire-threaded beads: glass, Christmas garland, Jamaican seeds, wood, and plastic. My husband found this basket in an Aspen, CO alley some years ago, abandoned because its wood handles had disintegrated. I restored the handles with vintage wood beads over metal tubing, and beaded the rest of the basket with a complimentary variety of red, black and yellow beads. This basket has shown in a number of juried and invitational shows around the country, and was on the cover of Beadwork magazine's Oct./Nov. 2003 issue.
