Giddee giddee bead pendant, Kowanyama Land and Natural Resources Management Office, March 16 1997 [PH].

The giddee giddee bead pendant composed of a wooden core covered with a wax layer. Giddee giddee (Abrus precatorius) beads are pressed into the wax and the wax holds them in place. A similar style is used for the firestick cover. A wrist band of string is attached with wax. This implement has the same name as the giddee giddee tree and beads that decorate it.
