Hebrew Letters in Glass

Hebrew abbreviation- honorific for someone who has passed away

The letters zion and lamed are abbreviations for zihrono livracha and basically means:   "of blessed memory".

These letters are cut from pieces of dichroic glass and haven't yet been fused onto base glass.
I'll be making three yahrzeit candle bridges for a commission.
Yahrzeit is a Yiddish/German word meaning year's time. Once a year we light a 24 hour candle to memorialize the passing of a loved one on the anniversary of their death (lunar calendar.)
