Baskets are a favorite collectable decorative accessory today but their quaint hand made appeal belies their once necessary functions. Baskets also have a spiritual history. Baskets were carried by the goddesses Diana and Hecate, of whom this was written, "The basket she bears is the symbol of the crops she made to grow." The design of this piece is based on the woven beauty of a basket. This pin is handcrafted in 100% sterling silver and gift boxed, every piece is made in the same manner today as centuries ago. We guarantee the quality and integrity of materials and workmanship in every piece, forever.
