Some call it an ornament; some call it a bauble; some call it a sun-catcher; some call it a small, showy trinket or decoration. We call it a handmade beauty. And when it's hand etched with a shamrock, the symbol of Ireland, and decorated with hints of emerald green (of course), this little gem becomes a versatile way to show your Irish pride, no matter what you call it. A real piece of Ireland at an afforable price. Welcome Home!

Did You Know? Our Irish Handmade Glass Company products are freeblown without the use of molds. Color is added to the crystal while it is still molten, and the craftsmen then manipulate and coax it into the required shape, design, and size, using the same wooden tools that have been in existence for centuries.
About the Artists.
After the closure of the Waterford Crystal factory in Waterford City, Ireland in 2009, a group of master craftsmen with a combined total of more than 130 years of experience in glassmaking came together and decided to set up a glassmaking studio of their own in the heart of Waterford City. The Irish Handmade Glass Company aims to bring the craft of glassmaking to life. Read the story of our artisan, The Irish Handmade Glass Company.
