Long Shell and Seed Earrings by Annie Shannon
Absolutely stunning drop earrings! Adorn yourself in shells and seeds from the beautiful beaches of the Top End.
Vibrant and diverse seeds are collected from local plants to create jewellery.
The little red beads often present in Anindilyakwa jewellery come from the Adenanthera Pavonina Tree, commonly known as the red bead tree. Thin brown seeds come from the Coffee Bean Seed. Gum nuts, shells, woven pandanus and various other nuts often adorn these handmade wares.
