This intricate pin by Manalisa Camarena is a traditional Navajo ceremonial basket in beige, black and red. A Navajo Ceremonial or Wedding Basket is a map to chart your life. The black represents struggle, the red is family, and the beige (light) represents enlightenment. The line leading from the center to the outer rim is there to remind you that there is always a path to the light. The final coil of the design should end above the path. In this unusual design, the meaning of the black and beige have been flipped. Manalisa creates her amazingly detailed miniature baskets out of silk thread coiled around a base of florist wire and finishes them with fabric hardener to retain their shape.
