Keepsake Cranes

We create keepsake cranes for healing, celebration and everyday cheer.  Some are folded from plastic sheets and may be your floral decorations, table centerpieces and more.  We also create them from special paper and them can rest on one of our stands and hang as an ornament.  Additional, we make Holy remembrance cranes with plastic mesh available in various colors and that can contain a rock.

These keepsake cranes have Japanese and Jewish significance.  In Asia, a crane stands for peace, healing and long-life.  Judaically, as these are remembrance crane that contain a stone, that something placed at gravesites on the gravestones to remember the deceased as an item of permanence to symbolize forever, peacefully and naturally.  Commemoriate someone or something special!

Please enjoy holding onto life with your chosen origami crane, whether a gift for the remembered, in celebration or for everyday cheer.  Peek at our shimmery cranes, paper cranes, holy cranes, cranes honoring others, display showcase and our symbol of inspiration.
