The handmade glass Icicle hanging ornaments are the perfect Winter decoration and Christmas gifts from Cork. Each glass hanging is made by Jacinta in her Garden Studio. They are inspired by memories of Irish Winters of her childhood, waking on cold crisp mornings and seeing the beautiful ice patterns painted by Jack Frost on the window-pane. Drifting in and out of that world between waking and sleep, imagining a magical world beyond.
These glass icicles mirror the ice, silver, crystals and sparkles of Jack Frost’s work. They are often hung on the Christmas Tree and for many symbolise links to our loved ones. Each is unique, different and a handmade once off. While most are made from sheet glass, sometimes I use chipped or broken Waterford or Galway Crystal glasses. A great way to get over the disappointment of the breakage of a treasured piece! Many hang them from their window to best capture the light. These Icicles and Snowflakes make a great festive Winter gift from Ireland.
Gift Card Message: When purchased as a gift I can include a personalised message from you to your receiver, please type your message in the drop down box.
Specification: As all work is handmade, the dimensions of the Icicles may vary slightly. Icicles are sold individually or in groups of 3. They are individually packed in a hanging Organza bag and are also wrapped in felt so that they can be packed safely away from year to year once Christmas is over. The icicles can be either transparent or flecked with blues, greens and reds.
Measurements: 10 cm to 13 cm in length, (4" to 5"). Approx. weight between 95 and 120 gm.
Price: €18 each or a pack of three for €50
Care Instructions: when you need to clean, wash in warm soapy water. Dishwasher is not recommended.
Lead in time for orders: Each piece is handmade in Cork. Most of my glass takes two days to make. While I will try to keep stock, since most items are made to order, it may take up to 6 days before postage. At busier times it can take up to two weeks.
Delivery: All orders are shipped by either An Post or Parcel direct and in Ireland are typically delivered within 2 working days of shipping but can take up to a week to get to Europe. Christmas post can be slower. It may be possible to arrange for people in the Cork area to collect from my studio.
