The basket on the right is the very first ring basket I made. I was very pleased with how the decoration on the front turned out, but it was a pain to get all the crystals to line up just so; I haven't put a decoration on the front of one since. The basket on the left was made by Corinne, my aunt. You can't tell by the photo, but the contrast between the black opaque beads and the translucent pink beads is very nice. It makes the flowers seem to to glow. I liked it so much that I "stole" it from her. Sometimes I give it back, but, as you can see, it's in my possession once more. Right where it should be. Eventually she will forget about it and I can keep it. Or, at least, that's my devious plan.
