Wheat Weavings

Wheat Weaving....an art form with origins almost as old as wheat itself....embodies the grain-related beliefs, rituals, and customs of many centuries and cultures.

Wheat has always been important as a food source, but more significantly as a symbol for thousands upon thousands of years of people's highest hopes and deepest fears.

Before baskets my weaving career began with wheat and I am now reintroducing it for sale on my website. Wheat weavings look lovely displayed on a wall or hanging in a window.

SWEETHEART

Thought to be Welsh in origin the Sweetheart was given to ensure good fortune in all matters of love.  Handwoven from the finest quality of North Dakota blackbearded wheat the Sweetheart would make a wonderful gift by itself or paired with a box of chocolates.  How about Hershey's Hugs....now that would make a wonderful pairing!
The Sweetheart measures approximately 9"X12"
