Notes from the artist :

The Rabbit say to itself, `Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!' It TOOK A WATCH OUT OF ITS WAISTCOAT- POCKET, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge.

In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again....

Beyond Wonderland rings(inspired by the white rabbit), and the Falling Alice acrylic cut-out, both decorated with swarovski crystals were combine into a pair of unique earrings!

** Due to the intricate design, the earrings is quite fragile- so please remember not to sit or just throw it into your bag. Handle it with care! :)

In my Arc En Ciel store, you will find unique one-off felted accessories which is perfect for cooler weather especially for Singaporeans who love to travel away from the heat.
