Bulay(i), meaning rich jewellery, treasure or gold in Yolngu matha, focuses on contemporary Yolngu jewellery from North-East Arnhem Land. The Bulay(i) Project consists of 40 Yolngu jewellers from Buku-Larrnggay Mulka and focuses on maintaining, innovating and documenting traditional Yolngu jewellery practice and expanding jewellers’ practice to include new techniques and materials, such as metals. Workshops are run by Indigenous Jewellery Project’s founding curator Emily McCulloch Childs and contemporary jeweller Melinda Young. Founded in 2013, the Indigenous Jewellery Project (IJP) is the first nation-wide Indigenous Australian contemporary jewellery project. IJP works with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander-owned art centres across Australia, running workshops on country with traditional Indigenous jewellers, founding curator Emily McCulloch Childs and leading contemporary jewellers.
