Stunning lampwork glass icicles to brighten your Christmas, holiday and winter decorating. Glass catches the light and these icicles will add sparkle to any room or setting. Our tiny icicles come in an attractive metal box, so they’re ready to give as gifts.
Tiny icicles are perfect for the higher branches of a tree, for smaller trees (anyone else have mini tree on their desk?), and for adding lots of sparkle. I think these would look amazing tied into a pine wreath – that’s on my to do list for this year.
The icicles are made from borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass is strong and durable. It’s used for kitchen dishes and scientific glassware. The rods used to make these icicles are just 5mm by 7mm, guaranteeing beautifully delicate decorations which will be treasured for years to come.
Each icicle is individually made by hand in our Yorkshire studio. This means that every icicle will be slightly different, adding to their charm.
Each icicle is made by melting borosilicate glass rod at temperatures of around approximately 1250°C (2300°F). Icicles are then annealed in a digitally controlled kiln to ensure that any stress that is introduced while the icicle is being made is removed. Stress occurs during making because of the high temperatures needed to melt the glass, and annealing the glass makes sure the icicle is strong.
Each icicle is approximately 7.5cm (3in) long. Icicles are strung with silver linen thread so they are ready to hang as soon as they’re unpacked.
To ensure that your icicles reach you in perfect condition they’ll come in a felt pouch and metal presentation box. This makes sure that the icicles can’t bang against each other during transit and makes it easy to store them safely for next year.
You’ll also receive a postcard with information about your icicles – and if you’d like to send these as a gift we’re happy to add a gift card and omit the invoice.
Sets of 6, 12 and 24 icicles come in a tin which measures 11.5cm by 8.5cm by 2.6cm (4.5in by 3.25in by 1in). Once packed this will easily fit through letterboxes, making it an ideal gift to post.
Prices include UK postage.
If you’d like to send icicles to several people just leave a note on your order to say this and we’ll contact you to ask for names, addresses and your messages for the gift cards.
These sets are ready to post.
