In Japan, the crane is said 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 cute earrings re-interpret the traditional origami crane: All the telltale features of the original are here, but rendered in a two-dimensional form and using simple lines instead of planes. The pointed wings, the angled neck and tail, even the paper-like pleats on the undersides of the wings are all immediately recognizable.
