Origami cranes have been a symbol of peace and good luck for centuries. This is a TRUE origami crane pendant, folded from a sheet of fine silver. Unlike many origami bird necklaces you may see, this is folded by hand, not mass produced from a stamp or mold to look like origami. Because I fold each one by hand myself, there will be slight variations in the details.

The crane, or "tsuru" is a classic origami design, unchanged for centuries. Its often the first animal many folders learn, and is considered a symbol of good luck and wishes granted. Paper cranes are given to people who are sick to wish them a good recovery, or left at cemetaries or memorials as a wish for peace.

A true origami crane starts with a square piece of paper, and has only 16 folds. Now imagine starting with a sheet of silver only 1 1/2 inches across, and you get this little piece of art.

This crane is carefully folded from .999 fine silver, kiln fired, and highly polished. Its just barely 1 inch wide from wingtip to wingtip, or from nose to tail. This is soldered to a fine silver wire and ring. Comes complete with an 18 inch (45.7cm) sterling silver chain. A 24 inch sterling chain is available for an additional $10

All items come in a tissue lined jewelry box suitable for gifts.
