- symbolism -
In heraldry, the hourglass depicted with wings is a symbol that human existence is fleeting, and that the "sands of time" will run out for every human life.
The hourglass, or sandglass, has long been a device used to measure time with evidence dating back to the 8th century and in heraldry it is symbolic of the flight of time and mortality. Time flies!
The recycled glass beads, with gorgeous texture, are hand made by artisans in Africa and sold through fair trade. They gather glass bottles and jars from around the world.
