Ininti Seed & Gumnut Necklace
Ininti Seeds are collected and sorted by the women when they are out looking for bush tucker. Then holes are burnt in them with a hot wire to stop germination and to allow the seed to be thread into jewellery. A good rain season is needed for the tree to flower and produce seeds. The colour of the seeds vary from a light caramel colour right through to a rich red and look stunning adorned around the neck. The seeds have a unique smell, like a sweet smoky fire which is just exquisite.
Some necklaces are intergrated with hand painted gumnuts to add colour and brightness for a fun, sophisticated style to add to a plain top or dress.
