Jeanette James - Echidna Quill Necklace


The striking necklace has been handmade by Palawa/Tasmanian artist Jeanette James.

Made from sustainably sourced echidna quills it has been assembled into a necklace using traditional stringing methods, handed down through generations of Palawa women.

These contemporary pieces have traditional origins and stylistically draw reference to adornments worn by generations of Palawa women. Jeanette has a license to collect the quills from deceased echidnas, which is required as they are a protected species.
