Size and Specifications
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 elastic. This neclace is 70cm in diameter and features a unique triple seed design, woven to form this beautiful necklace.
Provenance / History of This Item:
I purchased this necklace directly from Anmatjere ladies in Central Australia in 2019 where I live and work. I was shown the process of how they gather the seeds and fashion the necklaces, which is both very labour intensive and unique.
