It's a Charm

This personalized double wall basket begins with a double slot wood base. The inner basket weaves up fast to allow time for the personalization on the outside basket. Bring memories from a vacation, pet, event or loved one. Mine is made with items from my Mother's jewelry box. I have a large assortment of items for you to use if you prefer. Students may bring items to add to the basket. There will be lots of unique attachment skills will be learned.
