Sympathy Gift Jewelry and Yahrzeit Candle Holders

Welcome. I’m a Seattle fused glass artist who handcrafts beautiful and soothing sympathy gift jewelry necklaces with a beach sand or dragonfly design. Each pendant arrives in a box with a comforting and hopeful poem that accompanies the motif.

You will find samples on my website of condolence/sympathy/bereavement gift necklaces that I have created. To see what is currently available for purchase, please visit my Etsy Store.

Sand in Pink and Turquoise

Testimonial: “The lovely necklace created by Mimi Handlin so perfectly symbolizes the feelings and memories I have of my daughter it is as if it were designed especially for me. My dear 20 year old daughter lived in a college town in California’s central coast for the last year and a half of her life. The colors and other aspects of the fused glass pendant remind me both of her and of her happy life there; the gentle aqua reminds me of the ocean and the sky in that special place and the pale pink brings to mind her physical beauty as well as her gentle and caring nature. The sand within the pendant reminds me of the many happy hours she spent on the beach with her friends and the sparkly streak, to me, represents her sweet and vibrant spirit that lives on in my memory as I remember her with love and with gratefulness for having had her in my life.   The poem in the gift box is both comforting and inspiring.

Yahrzeit Candle Holder, 22k Gold and White Tree of LifeI also make fused glass yahrzeit candle holders. Each is one-of-a-kind and comes with a glass 24 hour candle that fits perfectly inside. Please see my website for samples of candle holders I’ve created and visit my Etsy Store.to see what is currently available.

 Testimonial: The yahrzeit candle holder is exquisite. I’ve never seen anything like it and it is a perfect tribute to my husband. I’ve been telling people we need more beautiful Judaica.  Thank you for making this.
