"I got my exchange basket today from Toni Best and boy is it beautiful! She used a piece of driftwood that she collected from the California Coast. The driftwood has floating coils, of pine from Mississippi, and copper. The base has a shell start, she coiled out until it was about a pie plate size and then attached it to the driftwood. It is just beautiful and when I look at it I see a duckbill platypus or otter swimming in the water. It is the coolest piece. "
