Happy didgeridoo browsing.....                                                             Aboriginal people have a long history of creating bush jewellery from seeds and other natural sources. Traditionally human hair was used as string.

The Aboriginal jewellery we offer here are made by Aboriginal artist Michelle Weave, a sister of our famous painter Brad Gosam. Michelle uses natural seeds and some wooden beads to create this Aboriginal Jewellery.

The clasps are of high quality and the string is high strength coated beading wire. The small red seeds are from native sandalwood trees and the long greyish seeds are from the native flame tree.

These Aboriginal necklaces and bracelets are high quality and stylish jewellery made by an Australian Aboriginal artist..,,,                                                                                                                                                               The boomerang is a long range weapon of the Australian Aborigines and is also called Kylie (an Aboriginal word).

The oldest known wooden returning boomerangs were found in peat at Wyrie Swamp, South Australia, and are dated to be about 10,000 years old. There are older rock paintings depicting boomerangs and it is probable that the Australian Aborigines first used the boomerang somewhere between 25,000 and 50,000 years ago.

Australian Aborigines have been making boomerangs for a very long time - for hunting, tribal warfare and also as musical instruments in secret ceremonies and corroborees.

At a corroboree Boomerangs are traditionally fashioned from Mulga or Black Wattle. Returning boomerangs were made from roots of these trees which already had the right shape. This is because the tips of a boomerang will break off when it hits the ground unless the grain of the wood follows the shape.

Fighting boomerangs also called killer boomerangs - are larger and heavier and have a distinctive hook shape. They were used in tribal warfare and could inflict serious wounds and they were also used to bring down medium size prey like wallabies, goannas etc.

For ceremonial purposes boomerangs were richly decorated with Aboriginal Artwork. Usually the decorations related specifically to the corroboree or ceremony where the boomerangs were to be used.

Two boomerangs were hit together back to back like clapsticks producing a softer rhythm. The singers and/or dancers are using the boomerangs and/or clapsticks to keep the rhythm while the didgeridoo player paints a musical picture to the story line ie animal sounds, the wind in the trees etc.

The below decorated ceremonial boomerangs are crafted out of solid timber and are painted or burned by Aboriginal people with their traditional animal designs.

The returning boomerangs are made and decorated by Aboriginal people using plywood. They come with throwing instructions in English, Dutch, German, French and Spanish....................................Bullroarers are thin tear-shaped pieces of wood attached to a long cord.

To use a bullroarer, spin it around it's own axis while swinging the end of the string in a big circle above your head. If done correctly the bullroarer will produce an eerie whirring sound that carries well in the often barren and silent Australian landscape (also see our FAQ's for more info).

Some people call the bullroarer Aboriginal 'bush telephone'. It is said that bullroarers were used in secret Aboriginal ceremonies. They were played to announce that secret business is happening at a certain location and everyone who heard a bullroarer knew to keep away from that area......................................                                                                    clapsticks used in corroboree dance Clapsticks are pieces of wood, about one foot long and one to two inches thick.

Australian Aboriginals used clapsticks as a percussion instrument in their dancing and singing.

In traditional Aboriginal corroborees clapsticks are used to provide the rhythm for the dance as the didgeridoo player provides the melody with his haunting sounds.

Today Aboriginal clapsticks are used all over the world as an ancient percussion instrument.

Our clapsticks are made from either Iron wood - a very dense and heavy timber which provides for excellent sound quality or Wattle another beautifully grained timber with good sound properties...........................................................................These shields are handmade and painted by Aboriginal People.

Shields were traditionally used in battle but also for punishment.

Many Aboriginal clans used shields in battle not just for defence, but also like a Uniform.The paintings on the shield and their style were well known to the clan so it helped to identify the warriors of the tribe in battle. It also would have helped the warriors to know that they were fighting not just for their clan but also for their beliefs and heritage which are reflected in the artwork.

When used in punishment, the person to be punished was given a shield and had to run through a double row of warriors of the tribe, which would use Nulla Nulla (sticks) to hit him/her.

The size of the shield was inversely proportionate to the crime. The bigger the crime, the smaller the shield. So for murder or rape you would get a very small shield and are likely to end up severely beaten or even dead, while for a small crime the perpetrator would get a big shield allowing him/her to defend against most blows.

A Nulla Nulla is a big stick with a thickening at the end like a wooden mace.

A Nulla is a normal stick, doubling the name gives it more power, so a Nulla Nulla is a very powerful stick, which was used only for war or punishment.                           Aboriginal Arts Crafts Merchandise  recommend using the  didjshop for the rare products
