About

Capture The Moment, Preserve Your Memories, Create An Heirloom! Bring Your Once In A Lifetime Home!

Like most people, the time we spend with friends and family is very important to us, and we find ourselves looking back on those moments and wishing to hold on to them. The short amount of time we spend vacationing each year is when we create the fondest memories and visit beautiful places we may never see again. When we think back on the Weddings, Anniversaries, trips to the beach, the first time we saw the Ocean……We realize that these moments are all a unique combination of the time, the circumstances, the people, and the place that can never be recreated. How best to mark these moments in our lifetime?
The first Cruise we ever took helped us to answer this question. Standing on Cabbage Beach, Paradise Island, The Bahamas for the first time is quite an experience for a couple from Upstate New York. Watching the sea-green sets roll in with a warm breeze and the distant sun out there on the endless horizon at a place like this creates one of those moments when you would like time to stand still. It’s a moment one would like to have a fitting way to look back on from many years ahead in the future, and it’s a moment one would like to share with others for generations to come – this is the inspiration for Heirloom Hourglass.
The Hourglass is the ultimate symbol of the passage of time - but inside your Heirloom Hourglass, time stands still. By personally filling an Heirloom Hourglass with Wedding Day sands, sand with a something meaningful to you, or anything you wish, you are creating an Heirloom that represents a single moment in your lifetime that will tell the story of that unique occasion for generations to come. For all those looking for a gift that will be cherished, a family heirloom, a new tradition, or just a truly meaningful way to mark special travels or events in your life, Heirloom Hourglass was designed with you in mind by people that know how you feel.

Capture The Moment, Preserve Your Memories, Create an Heirloom with a handcrafted Hourglass from Heirloom Hourglass, LLC
Each hourglass is handmade and normal production time is 2-10 weeks prior to shipping depending on hourglass design ordered, customization, engraving, etc. If you need it sooner, please let me know and I will let you know if I can make your deadline! Standard closures may be substituted to meet a deadline. Each Standard Wedding and Special Occasion Hourglasses stand approximately 9 and 5/8 inches tall and the bases are 6 inches in diameter. These models can be opened and closed for filling from either side of the hourglass with 2 charm closures that seal the hourglasses. One or both of these can be upgraded to any of the custom charm closures found in the Custom Charm Closure section. Just order the ones you prefer and they come in place of the standard ones. If you would only like to upgrade one on a model that comes standard with 2 different designs, please specify which one you would like to replace and which one you would like to keep. Every Standard Size Heirloom Hourglass comes with a Collection Kit which includes: a small carry bag, The Natural Wedding model hourglass has only 1 charm closures and only opens on one end. 2 paper sand collection / pouring cups, a strainer, 2 sand collection bags, a paper funnel, a certified authentic numbered personalization book, and a complete set of easy to use instructions. This kit is perfect for gathering your sands or soils and filling your Heirloom Hourglass. There are also ceremony kits with glass items available if you are planning on using the hourglass in a ceremony. Hourglasses from our Wedding & Special Occasion Collection hold 8-12 ounces. The runtime for each Standard Heirloom Hourglass is completely unique to you, and this is one of the best things about Heirloom Hourglass – just like our customers and your unique “Once In A Lifetime” moments, no two are exactly alike. You can fill your Heirloom Hourglass with sands from nearly any location in the world – sand you get yourself or purchase from us. Things like the size and shape of the sand grains, the moisture content, and the amount you put in your Heirloom Hourglass will all affect the runtime. I recommend filling the hourglass with 8-12 ounces of sand for the best appearance. The term “hourglass” can be misleading. Typical hourglasses run anywhere from 30 seconds to 4 hours. The purpose of the fillable models is to store and display sands that have a special meaning to the user, more so than it is to tell time. Standard Heirloom Hourglass models are not designed to run for an hour, but to hold sands of special meaning, such as sands from Your Wedding Day. Hourglass closures may be substituted in the event that the closure ordered is not available. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have prior to placing your order! Please allow 1-4 business days for responses - most of my time is spent in the workshop. All orders are shipped via USPS mail unless other arrangements are made in advance.

Please be aware that you will be responsible for any additional charges incurred.
