Japanese style brass charms: These charms are based on the Japanese art of Origami; folding paper into decorative shapes and figures. A bird is symbolic of longevity, luck, love and much more. Elephants symbolize the qualities of wisdom, strength, courage, longevity, patience, honor, and stature. The turtle symbolizes wisdom, protection, luck, and longevity. These little origami style charms are cast in brass with a matte finish. For everyday, little decorative charms with a clasp can be attached to planners, zippers, bags and purses, or as an added accessory you imagine.
