"A BEAUTIFUL BIRD-IN-THE-HAND!!!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

These colorful ornaments are fashioned with great care and meticulous craft! They feel so smooth and solid in the hand. Each bird is unique in its brightly-colored pattern. The birds make ideal and festive additions when tied to a wrapped gift! Each is a small but lovely keepsake. Thank you, Mr. Hussain, for sharing your talent. I always share where this gift is from, and the artists name, as every handmade work of art should be recognized and celebrated!!!
