These earrings retail for about $70, and they're composed of silver, a lush, red resin, and petrified oak. Much like amber, which I wrote about yesterday, petrified oak is wood that has been compressed under water over thousands of years to become what looks and feels like stone. It's pretty incredible to imagine wearing tiny pieces of an ancient forest, like something from a fairy tale.
To enter the giveaway, simply comment on this post any time between now and Friday at midnight EST and tell me what your favorite fairy tale is. I'm afraid this giveaway is available for U.S. residents only, but it is open to anonymous comments, as long as you provide a name, nickname, or email, so you can be identified if you win. I'll draw a winner via random number and announce it on Friday morning. Good luck!
