Paper Cranes and Mobiles!

An adorable friend with the last name Bird is expecting in August...  So I made her a family of birds!  These paper/glass cranes turned out so well that I will be making more in different colors as ornaments, whathaveyou.  I've made actual paper cranes in the past, so I got to making a crane, then drafted my own design from the dimensions of the actual crane.  I think that they worked out so well, I'll be doing more origami-inspired patterns!  More photos in the gallery here.

I also learned how to make mobiles with steel wire...  That was so much fun and I can see more mobiles in my glassy future!
