Whether you recognize Brigid as a goddess or a saint, her gentle presence in your home is a source of comfort and inspiration. And there is no symbol more closely associated with her than the traditional Brigid's Cross, woven from rushes or straw. Even today, people weave these crosses, and hang them over the door to ensure good health and prosperity. Our pewter version of the Brigid's Cross captures the protective intent of the original, and it is practical as well.
It's the little details that really bring a room together and create that unique ambience that is just your style. This Brigid's Cross Wall Hook is the perfect finishing touch for your decor. Put a couple by the front door for keys, hats, purses, etc. Use them in the kitchen for dishtowels, pans, or bundles of drying herbs. What uses will you think of?
This Brigid's Cross Wall Hook is made of lead-free pewter, and measures approximately 3" tall. It attaches to the wall with a single screw (included). If you are installing these on drywall, and using them for heavy items, you might want to consider using additional hardware.
How deep is the wall hook? The hook portion of this piece stands out from the rest by approximately 3/4".
How should I install this wall hook? In most cases, all you will need is a screwdriver, if you are attaching the hook to a drywall surface. If you are affixing the hook to wood, you may wish to pre-drill the hole.
The wall hook comes with a single short screw. While this is sufficient to support small items, if you plan to use the hook for anything heavier, you will want something more substantial. We recommend using a #5 screw that is at least 1" long, along with a screw-in wall anchor, which can be easily found at your local hardware store.
