marriage cranes

My latest crane adventure.

I was asked if I could create an ornament with 2 cranes in it and this is the result of my trials. I think I spent like 2 hours working on this wee little beastie! I know the ornaments look easy, but let me assure you, they’re not! Getting those birds to float just right, with their wings open, is time consuming. I enjoy it though. There’s something about the fact that their Zen simplicity belies the amount of work actually goes into them.

Anyways, the request was great because for some reason I never even thought of trying to put 2 cranes into the balls. I’ve made ornaments with 3 crocheted snowflakes, but never thought of doing so with the cranes. So here is to customer requests that prompt creativity!
