A couple of necklaces bought for $2.00 each from Vinnies!
The first one is gold colour coated beads.....lightweight, so not glass, but doesn't have a parrot clasp so must have a bit of age about it. I like it!!!
The second one is made from seeds.....Quandong and Ininti, so I believe, which are native to Northern Australia. The quandong is not normally purple,is usually light brown but has been coloured.
I really like this one......and waiting on the day I can find a piece of early australian gold set quandong jewellery which I have seen pictures of .......so beautiful. At least I was able to recognize the quandong in this necklace, so this is good!!
I could probably say this was made by Australian Aboriginal women.........it may have been........but I can't confirm that. Either way I really like it , hope you do too, thanks Judy
