Jeanette James - Echidna Quill Necklace


The striking jewellery produced by Palawa/Tasmanian artist Jeanette James uses the quills of echidna's.

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