St Brigid’s Cross Bronze Hanging Ornament by Wild Goose Studio. Made in Ireland, this bronze cast decoration in based on St Brigid’s Cross. It has been made using cast resin, which is then finished in pure bronze. Bronze is a precious metal that was prized by the ancient Celts in Ireland 4000 years ago. The St. Brigid’s Cross measures 3″ x 3″ and is finished beautifully with a bronze ribbon. The St Brigid’s Cross Bronze Hanging Ornament would be beautiful hung on a Christmas Tree or as part of a center piece.
St. Brigid is associated with many holy wells and with the cross traditionally woven from reeds on the 1st of February. This cross hangs over the door to protect the house and family. To this day, she remains one of Ireland’s best loved female saints.

Since its foundation in 1970, Wild Goose Studio has sought its inspiration in Ireland’s history, poetry and mythology.
Fro, the beginning, a group of skilled craft-workers in Kinsale, Co. Cork has maintained the tradition of high quality as the range of images has grown. The early experimental spirit of co-founders Brian Scott- McCarthy and Kathleen Smyth remains to this day as Wild Goose broadens its horizons and expands its offering of award-winning gifts for friends, family and for you.
The process of Wild Goose Studio
‘It all starts with the marriage of an idea or meaning with an image. One of our artists will then carve that image into a sculpted piece which becomes the original from which we create a mould so we can faithfully reproduce the image in full detail. The production process itself starts with metal powders such as bronze or cast iron which form the outer surface of the finished piece and the inner is created from a cold cast pouring. Once the piece is set, we polish it to reveal the beauty hidden beneath.’
