The Teddy Bear’s Picnic is a series of art works which place a sinister twist to popular fairytale characters. Within this world, Gretal discovers something more delicious than candy, Little Red Hiding Hood undergoes a ghastly transformation, and Repunzel uses her long, golden locks to commit atrocious acts. It is a world where button fetishes are contagious, childhood nursery rhymes are interwoven with macabre themes and happily ever after is anything but.

Based on the Teddy Bear’s Picnic series comes an exciting collaboration from the imagination of artist Lang Leav (Akina), and the talent of jeweller Zoe Sernack. The world of Akina lends a whimsical charm to the striking nature and popularity of Zoe’s work and the ZM925 collection. Born from this very special meeting are miniature works of art, tiny silver charms worn close to the hearts of fairy tale villains far and wide.

Each fairytale charm features a moveable head and comes tucked away in their own exquisite themed packaging, designed and handmade by Lang Leav.

There are 3 limited edition charms available including Little Miss Liliput, Little Red Riding Hood and Little Matchbox Girl, for $110 each.
