The "birds" in these earrings are 1.5" wide and less than 1" tall, and are the tiniest of Origami cranes--the paper art that delights children and adults alike. They dangle from gold-filled wires inserted through their body, from gold-plated ear wires. Although long they are extremely delicate and not in the least over-powering. The Origami paper has been treated with multiple layers of varnish to ensure that they don't easily tear or break. Lovely, in red, with gold accents.
