Jeanette James is a Tasmanian Aboriginal artist, born and bred, who carries out the traditional art of shell stringing.

She is also known for her unique echidna quill work made from Tasmania’s short beaked echidna. Jeanette’s works have been acquired by the National Gallery in Canberra and many of Australia’s major museums and galleries.

Jeanette’s work is hand made from natural materials and the processes are long and onerous. Before purchasing a work online is best to make an enquiry by email where you can find out availability, sizes and wearability.
