Lilydale, Victoria, Australia
This neck adornment depicts the beautiful red colours of a native Australian flowering gum. Hiding amongst the cascading gum leaves is a little gum nut baby. This mythical little cutie is the creation of the legendary Australian author and illustrator, May Gibbs who has been delighting readers with her stories of the bush for 100 years. Her first book “Gumnut babies” was first published in 1916.
We have one of these beautiful trees in our back garden.
