COUPLE ON SWING WEDDING

SWING
$108.00

Jewish weddings always include breaking a glass at the end of the ceremony. Traditionally, the man alone broke the glass though today, some couples break two glasses. The glass-breaking is typically followed by a communal "Mazel tov!", which is the equivalent of "Congratulations!"

It reminds us that love, like glass, is fragile and must be protected. The glass is broken to protect the marriage with an implied prayer: "May your marriage last as long as it would take to repair this glass." The shattering of the glass concludes the ceremony on a high note.

A GR Metalworks heart shaped wedding keepsake with a couple swinging on a swing is made from brass and copper. On the side of this hand crafted sculpture a tube floats as a place for displaying the broken wedding glass in a small glass tube. Your sculpture measures appox 9 x 8 and stands on a 7 inch wide triangle.
