"I started weaving at Bickerton Island, that was my learning. Before, the old ladies used to do the basket weaving traditional way with pandanus. The old ladies used to use the ghost net to make sculpture of people and turtle. Now we using ghost net to make baskets and also use the bush dye fabric to make baskets a new way. Aly is teaching us, it’s fun."  - Letoria Yulidjirri

This necklace has been created using a fusion of traditional and contemporary materials and techniques by fibre artists from Anindilyakwa Arts on Groote Eylandt (East Arnhem Land).
