Silver Origami Crane Necklace

Silver origami crane pendant floating gently on a Sterling Silver necklace. The handmade pendant is finely detailed and carefully crafted of fine silver (.999).

Since the sculptures are individually hand folded (not cast), each piece has slight variations. The tilt of the head and curve of the wings are unique to each crane.

Width of pendant is approximately 3/4" (2cm)
Satin Finish

Let me know if you'd prefer a magnetic clasp to a standard spring ring clasp for $3 extra.

Quantity discounts for the bridal party are available upon request.

Since I am of Japanese-American decent, I used Origami Cranes as a subtle theme throughout my recent wedding. I originally designed these pendants as gifts for our mothers and bridesmaids.
