This is another colorful photo from Sturee Tribal Village in Pendleton (see yesterday’s post.)   This bright, intricately woven basket was made in Africa using telephone wire.  I can recall bits of a memory of some sort of jewelry being made from telephone wire back in the day.  I wish the whole memory would come back!

I was captivated by the craftsmanship of these baskets and by the many assorted color combinations and patterns used.  I would love to have the talent and skill required to craft one of these!   afs
