In A Nutshell

  • The unique design was created from our photograph of a prison cell window, located at the Port Arthur Historic Site (Tasmania, Australia)
  • The waxed cotton cord has been finished with sliding knots so the piece can be worn at different lengths in order to suit the neckline of your garment. Colours vary between light brown and black depending on the design selected. If you have a preference, this request can be made at the checkout in the notes section.
  • Size: Diameter: 29 mm, Thickness: 4 mm
  • Comes in a beautiful gift box

Story

The Port Arthur site was founded as a shipbuilding and penal colony in 1830. It was relatively modern by the day’s standards and tried to reduce repeat offending by teaching prisoners a trade and disciplining inmates with psychological deterrents rather than brute force alone. It was also thought that by removing small-scale offenders from their native environments (mostly England and Ireland), it could reduce the potential of a life of crime. A lot of the site is still intact today and it makes a great place to explore this chapter of Tasmania’s history.
