Heirloom Hourglass - The Solar Eclipse in Night Sky and WhiteGlow
Solar Eclipse Hourglass by Heirloom Hourglass - New For August, 2017 - Designed in honor of The August 21, 2017 Solar Eclipse.
On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. Anyone within the path of totality
can see one of nature's most awe inspiring sights - a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon will completely cover
the sun and the sun's tenuous atmosphere - the corona - can be seen, will stretch from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South
Carolina. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun's disk.
We use our Night Sky Oceanstone bases for this stunning hourglass to represent the darkness that happens when the sun
is covered by the moon. They are Black with small specks whites and grays and look like a night when every star in the sky
is out and shining bright. For the glow the sun creates when behind the moon, we use white semi gloss solid hardwood
braided rope shaped intertwining strands of rope for the pillars. They symbolize the joining of your lives together and your
union of marriage and complement the Black bases perfectly. The timeless look of this model will add the perfect elements
of artistry, tradition, and prestige to your Wedding. It matches perfectly with a single Sun closure in either Pewter
or Pewter with a Gold finish on each side. Please selct option from drop down menu. These premium pewter closures allow
you to easily open and close your Heirloom Hourglass from either side so you can fill it with your own real beach sands or
colored sands whenever you wish. The hand blown glass completes The Eclipse and it will hold your Wedding Day or Special Occasion
Sands for generations to come. This and all Heirloom Hourglasses in this collection are 9 and 5/8 inches in height and
6 inches around, making them the perfect size for Unity Sand Ceremonies and for display in your home. The Eclipse comes complete
with a collection kit for gathering and screening real beach sand for use in filling your hourglass. Also included are a paper
funnel and 2 paper sand pourers for filling. Ceremony packages with glass and/or seashell items are also available for purchase
sedately. This unique sand ceremony hourglass is the perfect addition to a wedding unity sand ceremony, family unity
ceremony, or vow renewal ceremony. It is the perfect alternative to the unity candle for an outdoor wedding sand
ceremony, destination beach wedding sand ceremony, or an inside wedding where a candle cannot be lit. It also makes the
perfect heartfelt gift for any occasion.
