Echidna Quill Earrings Stud
Echidna quill stud earrings with red quandong seed detail.
These distinctive earrings are hand made by Barbara Quayle, a Barkindji artist living in Menindee.
Turning nature into beautiful, wearable art, Barbara makes jewellery from local materials such as gum-nuts, echinda quills and quandong seeds.
"I'm a proud Barkindji/Malyangapa Nghuungku (woman).
I make Jewellery from what I can gather from my Ancestral homeland, what mother nature provides. I weave, use mussel shells, Echidna quills, emu/bird feathers, gum-nuts, quondong seeds, etc. I hope you like the jewellery as much as I love making the items."
