"Be careful. They are delicate"

These are beautiful. Well crafted and finished. But be very careful - even though they are stone, they are delicate. When I was hanging the last two little ones the star point with the hole/ribbon broke off both of them. Darn! I would replace those two with two bigger ones except that they only come in the assorted set of 6. Still, now that you know this in advance, just be very gentle!
