We are excited to feature Fay Lim of Casion Jewelry and their Cranes for Peace collection! The Asian tradition of 1,000 paper cranes represents granting a special wish, happiness, long life, and to symbolize peace. Using “Washi” or traditional Japanese paper that is processed by hand and made in the traditional manner; these handcrafted cranes are also treated to prevent UV fading and are water resistant before transformed into delicate earrings.

The “Cranes for Peace” fundraising campaign donates funds to Stop AAPI Hate Center,  a coalition of the Asian Pacific Policy & Planning Council, Chinese for Affirmative Action, and the Asian American Studies Department at San Francisco State University. The organization tracks and reports incidents of hate, violence, harassment, and discrimination as well as provides translation services, advocacy, and more.
