This series of shell necklaces in Collection #1 are inspired by the traditional ‘bilas’ ceremonial attire of the inhabitants of Papua, which comprise necklaces, nose pieces, headbands, chest ornamentation, armbands, headdresses and bracelets. A bewildering range of flora and fauna go into these accessories: shells, feathers, teeth, ferns, coral, bones, trade beads, bamboo, tusks, flowers, seeds and vines.
