Unique , very artistic
I love the combination of colors and shapes. I have lots of earrings but none like these which get many compliments for their uniqueness. The craftsmanship is excellent.

Perfect for the Hippo Lover!
Anna Yawson has carved a magnificent hippo! The necklace is adjustable and will make the perfect and unique gift for my daughter, who collects hippos. It is definitely one of a kind and she has nothing like it. She will be thrilled with Annas wonderful craftsmanship!
