The Jiidid (whirlpool) earrings design is 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.


Assembled from hand-painted black/brown acrylic with golden detailing and a silver sparkle mirror circle and a stainless steel post.

Approx. 7cm in length.


Nagula Jarndu (Saltwater Woman) is a not-for-profit 100% Aboriginal owned and managed art centre with a focus on contemporary hand printed textiles.

The earring designs have come from those textile prints.

The earrings are laser cut acrylics that are hand painted with stainless steel findings.

Nagula Jarndu earrings are hand made in Broome, Western Australia
