Beadwork Pin Cushion Shadowbox
This Shadowbox with Pin Cushion Beadwork will make a nice display in your home. A crafter beaded this antique scalloped edge pin cushion using clear, blue, green, yellow and red transparent beads. You will also see some clear Basket Beads in the design. The crafter added white pony beads around the edge. The pictorial raised beadwork of a bird on a branch with leaves. The pin cushion is no longer usable and the revenants are displayed in a 9″ x 11″wooden shadowbox.
It is a classic example of the Beaded Whimsy tourist souvenirs. Native American crafters in the border regions between Canada and the United States at the turn of the 20th century created many of these whimsies for the tourist trade.
