Jiidid (Whirlpool) Earrings by Nagula Jarndu
Only a few left in stock
Jiidid (whirlpool) design by Mayala artist Cecilia Tigan.
Cecilia comes from Djarindjin up on the Dampier Peninsula 160kms north of Broome.
It is country surrounded by sea and this design tells the story of the ‘jiidid’ and the power and strength of the ocean on her country.
The importance of carefully reading the massive tides that rip through and knowing when it is safe to go into the deep ocean or you get caught in a ‘jiidid’ and get spun from one to the next.
About Nagula Jarndu
Yawuru Jarndu first started operating in 1987 when it was established as an Indigenous women’s resource centre by Yawuru women, with the aim of recording oral history and preserving Yawuru language and culture.
The organisation evolved into an arts and textiles business, offering training in screen printing and dressmaking, producing fabrics for clothing and home wares, designed and made by local Indigenous artists. A retail outlet was established in 1998 called Nagula Jarndu Designs which proved a successful venture.
