In Japan, the crane is believed to be a sacred creature that lives for a thousand years.
An ancient legend grew up around the crane that anyone who folded a thousand origami cranes – one for each year – would be granted a gift by the gods.
These earrings are a pleasant reminder of that legend and the fun of origami. They have all the telltale characteristics of the origami crane: The pointed wings, the angled neck and tail, even the paper-like pleats on the undersides of the wings.
They have a shape that is unique for earrings which makes them different and eye-catching, and the miniature size makes them cute.
