Jacaranda trees add to the beauty of Rwanda, with their feathery leaves and small purple flowers. They are also special in that they grow back after being cut.
Artisans use Jacaranda branches to carve these charming little birds, which are similar in size to our Rwandan fire finches.
Choose a white or unfinished natural bird ornament, or create a set of three or five birds! They look beautiful clustered against the dark evergreen of a Christmas tree.
Please note that the shape of the bird ornaments vary slightly due to the styles of the individual woodcarvers.
