Lately I've been making little cranes (about 3cm across) and turning them into earrings. I'm planning on selling them at Waicon this year, but I figured I'd put some up here now for anybody who might want to buy them for Christmas presents or just get first pick of the selection.
The earring hooks are silver-coated surgical steel, so they are hypo-allergenic and should be wearable by anybody. The cranes are made from Japanese origami paper, hand-folded by me, and then heavily lacquered for durability. The beads I have at the moment are either glass crackle beads or cloisonne beads, measuring between 4mm and 6mm.
At the moment I only have a few design options, but I'll be making more in the leadup to Waicon, and if there's interest I'll post more as I go.

They're $15 plus shipping, and if you're local you can of course just pick them up from me.
