Five More With Broken Pieces

5 More From Broken Pieces

The previous post addressed how although a marriage may be cracked or fragmented, it still has potential to evolve into sea glass. Weathered, polished pieces of glass that are used to create enduring beauty. Several friends and readers noted that same analogy applies in our other relationships: parents, siblings, friends – even with ourselves!

Today’s Friday Five is another look – and reminder – of the results that can be obtained from taking the time to pick up the pieces and put them together in a new way. One that has more strength and durability to go with its new look. The end product? Beauty combined with character that can last a lifetime!

Here’s what 5 artists made with broken pieces.
