Originally inspired by a small individual silver bead, Yllätys (Surprise) has grown into a gorgeous collection of silver bead jewellery. This minimalistic statement piece makes for a great gift and an accessory for everyday use and festive moments.

Did you notice the wood grains?
Every wooden Aarikka item is unique, because every piece of wood is unique. Products are handmade, visible in them and the volume they are made in - small volumes for a need. So the small details of life are visible. Light stripes visible in the wooden pearls are made by Kaija's husband Erkki Ruokonen's unique technique, which is still used to hand-dye all wooden products in Raisio.
The guardians of harmony.
Small, wooden, round. Made in Finland by hand. Aarikka's Elves are true Aarikka, everyday celebration at its finest. Collected and loved for 40 years.
