An elaborate Celtic Irish trinity knot that is handmade out of turquoise blue and purple stained glass. A perfect decoration for St Patrick's Day, or year round for those who enjoy celtic designs.

This knot has the basis in a trinity knot, but with a few more twists and turns. Like all celtic knots, the design is a continuous line, even through all the turns. It is in a triangle shape with a top point and two side points that are slightly larger than the top one. The twists in the center almost look like a pretzel shape. The glass in this knot is very pretty. The main color is a turquoise blue, but there are shades of purple and white that swirl through the blue. On the back (as shown in the last photo) the purple color is more predominant. This glass is solid, but really shines in the light. However, the piece could also hang on a wall and still show the glass color nicely.

The knot is 9 inches ( 22.5 cm) wide and 4.5 inches (11 cm) high. It hangs from a hook at the top point.

A little of the history and meaning of the celtic knots (thanks to wikipedia). Celtic knots have been found as far back as 300 AD or earlier. The original meaning is unsure, but later meanings include those of unity and eternity, because the knots have no endpoint. Other interpretations deal with spiritual significance, protection from evil, and love. I love the detail and intricate patterns in the knots, and enjoy making things that come from my Irish heritage.

This pattern was not original, just an alteration of a traditional design.



All my glass pieces are made using the Tiffany method of copper foil and solder, along with my own imaginings. Each piece will be unique because of the variance of patterns within the glass, and the handmade quality. More of my items can be viewed here http://www.fivesparrows.etsy.com

Frequently asked questions about FiveSparrows

I am happy to do a custom order if it is feasible to create. Don't hesitate to ask, and I can let you know if it is doable. I am happy to work with you on designs and colors, and will do some messaging back and forth with you to make sure you end up with a finished project that you enjoy.

I don't do anything that is copyrighted by someone else (team logos, movie characters etc) and am unable to do large leaded items.
Hang sun catchers on a stable hanger in a window-I would recommend a nail or hook over a suction cup. Outdoor garden art can be outside in the elements, as long as they are brought inside in the winter. (or a strong wind-use your judgement-I have garden stakes that stay out all summer and hold up fine)

Over time the glass and solder can get dusty or tarnished. The glass can be wiped clean with non-ammonia cleaner and a soft cloth. Car wax can also be applied over the piece and then buffed off with a soft rag. This will clean the solder lines and shine the glass as well.
My items are shipped between layers of cardboard, and tied with a raffia ribbon. I am happy to add a note if you are sending the item as a gift. Just send me a message or a note when ordering of what you would like included.
I am happy to do wholesale pricing if you are ordering over 10 of an item. My ability to do large orders is limited by time - it is just one person creating, so I can only work so fast. Please ask about wholesale items though and remember to allow extra time for the creating process.
