If you were intrigued by the bunny with wings for ears in yesterday’s Fairy Tale exhibit, you are going to love today’s giveaway. The artist, Anna Siivonen, is offering a $35 Gift Certificate to one of our readers!

fairy tale bunny necklace

Anna describes the pieces she sculpts out of silver, copper, and bronze as “weird and wonderful art jewelry”. She has a love of skulls and finds ways to include them in all sorts of places. How awesome is this pendant that features skulls wearing party hats?

the party must go on

Her designs can be edgy and even creepy, but there is always a touch of whimsy in them. This single skull/spider earring is made of bronze, but has two surgical steel legs so you can wear it on either side. I love the way the functional earwire is an integral part of the design.

If that’s not your style, Anna also makes sweet and simple pieces like these tiny shiny silver cloud earrings. As with many of her designs, they are made with titanium posts to keep them hypoallergenic.

They’re all so cool! Unique and unusual, I like them. If I have to pick one though, I love the lychee pendant, or the raspberry, I can’t decide! I like fruit :)

5 Nancy February 13, 2013 at 9:23 am

Wow, her style is so cool!!! My favorite item is the titanium silver “hi bye” earrings – I love the whimsical look of the letters and can totally imagine wearing ‘em on my ears! :)

21 beverly everly February 13, 2013 at 9:06 pm

I love the quirky, eclectic style of the whole collection… the Winged Skull necklace was my favorite, I think.

22 Victoria Barton February 13, 2013 at 10:07 pm

I love love love the party skulls necklace!

33 Vika February 15, 2013 at 3:13 pm

It is a close call between the silver cloud earrings, the cluster earrings the silver bunny with the angel wing ears pendant, but I think if I really had to pick only one I’d want the adorable cloud studs. So pretty.

34 Carolina T February 17, 2013 at 10:49 am

I love their bronze & titanium hidden hearts ring but all of their jewelry is amazing

35 Rachel February 18, 2013 at 8:56 am

I can see why the skull spider earring gets a feature, but since you’ve included it in your post, I won’t pick it as my favorite. I think I like either the Lightening bolt earrings or the Silver bat cat necklace the best. (though it’s definitely a hard decision)

36 Heather Paulding February 18, 2013 at 2:15 pm

Love the lychee pendant, but the cloud earrings are still my fave! So much to love:)
