Jewellery such as necklaces as well as paintings are an extremely important component in Aboriginal culture. Traditionally it was customary for necklaces to be worn by both men and women during ceremonies relating to sexuality and fecundity. This is one of the few practices of special significance which is maintained in contemporary Aboriginal culture.The most important part of the necklace is the string or hair used. It symbolises the relatedness of people and families.
