Shanti Seeds of Bali on Artfire - Featured Artisan

The "Shanti Seeds of Bali" shop is owned by the Badung, Bali village residents.

The villagers take part in handcrafting the seed baskets. Baskets come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and styles.

Your own basket can be customed made in your choice of colors, shape, and design.

Each handcrafted basket is made with size 11 glass seed beads with a 2 drop Peyote stitch technique. Now, I don't KNOW what that entirely means but the baskets are simply stunning!!

Please stop by and take a look at these baskets and consider helping out this small village and it's struggling residents.
