Messenger cranes are back and better than ever!!!
In Chinese and Japanese mythology the crane was the intermediary between heaven and earth, carrying messages from the gods to humans. The crane represents long life, eternal youth, good fortune, happiness, and vigilance.
My cranes don't exactly carry messages from the gods but they DO carry a tiny message to your loved ones! They can't quite fly either but they CAN be sent in the handmade origami envelope that comes with them, so they make perfect greetings cards which double up as beautiful keep sake, fortune bringing decorations, each with it's own precious stone or sparkling Swarovski crystal.
I've been working on packaging and hope to get some in craft shops soon but at the moment I'm taking orders on Folksy, Where I can custom make them for you with your own message and choice of papers.
