LaKota Scott: Woven Jewelry

I'm always amazed by the jewelry produced by Navajo artist LaKota Scott.

Each piece is handmade using copper wire woven around a thin leather cord, and transformed into a mini Navajo basket that you can wear as earrings, a pendant, or, now, a bold cuff.

I barely have the patience to weave at the normal basketry size, let alone the teeny tiny micro 1.5" wide mini size. I am just totally impressed. Scroll down to see more examples of her work.
