Nannette Shaw is a Tyereelore Elder from Tasmania with ties to the Boonwurrung/Bunurong people of Southern Victoria. She makes traditional bull kelp water vessels and jewellery in the same way as Tasmanian Aboriginal women in pre-colonial times. Nannette continues to harvest mainly on Bruny Island and Louisa Bay in the south west of Tasmania. This practice connects her to Country and culture, benefits her health and nourishes her soul. Nannette enjoys the sense of connection with her ancestors through her work.

These bracelets have been hand woven by Aunty Netty using River Reed and Yakka dyed beads. Aunty Netty makes the most of materials from the land, only ever taking what she needs, ensuring her arts practice is sustainable and caring for country.
