Australian Bush-Crafted Besoms

DSC09484

This was wild-crafted by me, from fallen Gum Tree branches and Casuarina (She Oak) leaves. Here on the farm where I live.

A very Australian Besom!

I’ve tied it all together with Australian spun and died wool, dabbed some craft glue and fastened a sterling silver pentacle to the front!

On one of my walks through the paddocks this week I noticed a large dead branch of a Casuarina Tree had come down and had dried out nicely. I though what a waste of such a lovely big branch. So I was inspired to think of something I could do to honour these lovely windbreaks that protect my home when the winds come in strongly from the West.

I was thinking about the fact that the leaves look so much like a little broom, and so that is what I decided they could become, and that I’d make up a few just to see if anyone liked them, so I crafted them. and they are now for sale in my store, I think I might make some more as time permits and as branches become available.

Besom is the old-world term for a broom which is used for more than just sweeping.
