Beaded Jewellery

Necklace making is a traditional part of Australian Aboriginal culture and each stage plays an intregral part from seed collection to wearing necklaces during ceremonies. Necklaces are worn by both Aboriginal men and women during ceremonies.  The production of necklaces is seasonal which is mainly carried out by the women and children. In the desert regions of Australia seed production and development are dependent on sufficient rainfalls.  Women and children gather seeds and pods for necklace making while searching for bush tucker using their traditional knowledge.
