When I was feeling not quite myself at Christmas and the New Year just passed, I bought myself a necklace to cheer me up. It was a necklace that I had my eye on for a while because I loved the intricate design and the meaning behind the charm itself.
The necklace that I bought was this beautiful gold Crane necklace. Its design was exactly the kind of necklace I had been wanting to purchase for some time and I loved the meaning behind the Crane.
The Crane is most famously known as a traditional paper craft design in Origami. Origami (折り紙), as explained by Jet the designer of this necklace, is the ancient Japanese art of paper folding. The goal of this art is to create a representation of an object using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably without the use of gluing or cutting the paper, and using only one piece of paper.
Origami only uses a small number of different folds, but they can be combined in a variety of ways to make intricate designs. The most well known form is the Japanese paper crane.
The Origami Crane is believed to be associated with good luck. If you fold an Origami Crane and give it as a gift to someone, the Crane is meant to represent luck and happiness to the receiver. It is simply a Japanese belief and not a formula to attract good fortune or be used as a new age prop.
I don’t believe in luck, but I bought the necklace as a gift to myself because I wanted to wish myself success in 2013 with the birth of my daughter and with my career and blog.
Fleur Envy is the business behind the design of this necklace. The necklace is commonly worn by brides because of its sleek and elegant design. I adore the rest of the Fleur Envy range because the designs are so feminine, dainty and classy.
