                      It is a small, inexpensive string of hens. I ordered as a gift, but returned, because I would have been embarrassed to give.

                                  Gift for my sister who is having money issues. A cute way to offer support and also support fair trade for artisans from India.

                                              The idea of these birds is super for a new home, wedding gift etc. However they are way too small. Would like to see you get them in about a 4 inch bird that would really make a statement.

                                                    I hung mine next to my door in a little curvy pattern, so we jingle the bell when we walk by. It seems to be very well-made. It was a little pricey, in my opinion, but if the money really goes back to the ladies who made in India, then that's okay.

                                                      These made very sweet gifts. They're attractive, and I like the sourcing. And one recipient reported the "prosperity" influence was immediate -- she won a local raffle. :-)
