Looking for a unique item for a bunny fancier? Read on.
How about some terrific jewelry? Possibly the most stunning piece of bunny art that I have come across this season is the Bunny Angel by artist Sandra Sutherlin out of Columbus, Ohio. The brass work of art features a large pair of feathered angel wings on a fiercely dignified brass rabbit. Both wings and rabbit are made from high quality brass stampings which are given an antiqued finish, making them resemble old gold.
This beautiful work can be worn as a striking necklace or used on an urn or other memorial to a beloved pet. Only $21, this beautiful bunny angel is just one of many beautiful jewelry items and other creations at the Sandrandan Etsy Shop.
If you are looking for a one-of-a kind gift item, Alora Designs has you covered.
Well, they have something covered. In silver.
Bunny poop! Yes! Artist Laura Corbier dries the ‘recycled hay balls’ and applies many coats of Silver Metal Clay (.999 fine silver). After drying and sanding, the Silver Poop is fired in a kiln at almost 1700 degrees, burning away the poo and leaving very fine ash inside the ball. The pendant is then finished with various patinas, monograms and other details so that no two are alike.
Ms. Corbier also fashions Memorial Tear earrings, using the above process to cover bits of your pet’s cremation ash to form a beautiful pair of silver memorial tear earrings.
You can find these items as well as other pet and pet-memorial related items on the Alora Designs Etsy Site; while there, check out the fine bunny couture (including camouflage sweaters and hats for the boys, and tiaras for the girls).
How about a cloisonné bunny? Creative Arts by M Parisi offers handmade copper enamel and fine silver jewelry featuring a variety of bunnies in a variety of bunny poses! By sifting glass powder onto a piece of pure copper and firing at 1500 degrees F, Ms. Parisi creates beautiful works of handmade cloisonne art; no two are alike.
YOUR bunny (or the bunny of your choice) can be depicted on the pendants, with the background color of your choice. This is a wonderful way to memorialize a pet; contact Creative Arts to work out the details of your pendant; pendants include a lace or silk organdy ribbon to use as a necklace.

Evonne Vey is a rabbit activist and noted artist, providing illustrations for several books, including ‘Mithril’s Magic’ as well as ‘Rabbit Nutrition and Nutritional Healing’. Evonne has an extensive line of beautiful, cheerful bunny art including Christmas and every day cards and calendars, ornaments, mugs, tiles and plates, shirts, mouse pads, tote bags and more.
