  • Description:

    Neclace made from Bush Beans and Gumnuts, bored and strung in the traditional Indigenous Australian way. Anmatjere ladies walk many miles to collect these seeds where they grow naturally in Central Australia. Then they bore the holes individully with wires heated in the coals, and string them on wool. This neclace is 84cm in diameter.

    Provenance / History of This Item:

    This necklace was purchased directly from Anmatjere ladies in Central Australia in 2018 where I live and work and I was shown the process of how they gather the seeds and fashion the necklaces. It is very labor intensive and unique.
