Loved the icicles! Each one is different and there are a number of different sizes - which contributes to the realistic and organic qualities. We hung them on the Christmas tree and they add a beautiful wintery shimmer! One was broken, but still able to use.
These are just lovely... beautiful, shining and SO natural! I bought several sets, and my tree looks like a winter wonderland. They come in a variety of sizes and even among the same-sized icicles, the individual pieces vary. I like the idea, too, that the glass for them was recycled. I am so happy with them, that I've sent several sets to friends as holiday gifts.
My icicles arrived quickly and none were broken. They are so realistic and very beautiful. The workmanship is outstanding. They appear to be very fragile (especially the larger ones) and wouldn't be appropriate in high traffic areas or with small children. It would have been nice if the wire was already attached but I will probably use a clear (fishing) line instead of the copper wire included.
The ornaments arrived quicker than expected. None were damaged (I ordered 3 boxes). They will look beautiful on our Xmas tree this year. However, I will replace the copper hanging wire with fishing monofilament so all you see is the icicle, not the hanger. Thank you Overstock.com.
Received two boxes of icicle ornaments in perfect condition. They are beautiful and will look so realistic on my new white wire sparkling christmas tree decorated with glass and crystal ornaments combined with some red ornaments. Thanks!!
I was very excited to receive these. They are very realistic looking and unique. Mine came well packed in the box (shown in the picture), held together with a rubber band and also in some packing material. Perhaps Overstock is taking note of what people are complaining about? These Icicle are very delicate and and come in various sizes. When you receive the package they come with a small bundle of copper color wire to use to hang them with. As suggested by another I'm going to use fishing line instead so the copper wire doesn't show up. I wouldn't plan on using them anywhere they may not have a sturdy place to be hung from or anywhere children or pets may have access to them.
I collect glass icicles and when I saw these I had to have them. They are realistic and very beautiful. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star review is because several of them were broken. I noticed in the reviews prior to buying them that quite a few people said theirs were broken, so I was forewarned, but I bought them anyway. They need to be packed with something to cushion the blows in transit.
These glass icicles are beautiful and very realistic looking. A couple arrived broken, but they are still such a good value. They are now some of my favorite pieces to decorate with. I used it on my christmas tree and around my dining room chandelier.
Gotta love Overstock...they came SO fast! NOT ONE was broken! I had hesitated on buying them because of some reviewers who had gotten theirs with some broken. The packaging is excellent, so not sure how some were unfortunate. But I bought two boxes and all are in perfect condition. I'm a Christmas nut and I, too, can't wait to decorate my tree with these gems this year! I've been looking for a long time for glass icicles! Very hard to find--esp. at this price!
