Gumnut Necklaceby Ninuku Artists

This beautiful necklace measuring 41cm is made up of Gumnut seed shells. The Gumnuts have been painted dark and light purple. Necklace making is a traditional part of Australian Aboriginal culture and each stage plays an integral part from seed collection to wearing necklaces during ceremonies. Often women will collect the various seeds, nuts and shells and use a hot metal wire to poke a hole through each end in order to thread the seeds to create the necklace.

Artist

Central Art is excited to be working directly with Ninuku Arts and their artists to showcase their stunning beaded jewellery through our website and art boutique. Ninuku Arts is an Indigenous owned and governed Art Centre which supports artists from two communities - Pipalyatjara and Kalka. Both communities are located in the far north-western corner of South Australia, near the tri-state border of South Australia, Western Australia and Northern Territory. The two communities, fourteen kilometres apart, are surrounded by the rolling, rocky hills of the Tomkinson Ranges and are part of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands. Both Kalka and Pipalyatjara are peaceful places. This is a result of strong governance, cultural engagement and pride among local Anangu
