Through Tina's wonderful 25 Days of Giveaways, I found a blog (but I can't remember which one) that introduced me to this lovely esty shop that makes beautiful angels and other things from sea glass. As soon as I saw these I knew I had to have them:
I remembered reading a post by Once a Mother about sea glass and the fact that these came in a set just moved me so much. One pink. One blue. The pink one just a tad bigger than the blue and the blue looks like it has a special heart. They are so perfect!
Sea glass gets is smooth shape by riding the waves and getting beaten against the rocks and waves. Over time, they loose their sharp, painful edges and corners and resemble a jewel instead of broken glass. The glass is not destroyed by the pressure and pain of the crashing waves and jagged rocks, it's perfected by them.
What a beautiful reminder of the grief journey and of my angel babies.
