Fiona Hughes is a Trawoolway, Tyereelore Woman from Tasmania who also has ties to the Bunurong people of Welcome River in Victoria.  Fiona is a maker of Traditional Shell Jewellery and Bull Kelp vessels both of which are made in the same way the Ancestral Women of Tasmania have done for thousands of years.  Fiona is passionate about her Island Heritage and knows the importance of passing on these Traditional Crafts on to the younger ones, especially her granddaughters.

This bracelet is made from rare Mariner Shells harvested from Cape Barren Island by Aunty Joan Brown who has passed the shells and the cultural art of stringing onto Fiona.

This stunning Mariner bracelet with a pearl hue, is not only a wearable piece of jewellery but also a piece of art unto itself.
