Sterling silver key chain, with 5/8″ glass cabochon that incorporates cremation ash.
I make each of these beautiful keepsake beads by hand, one at a time. I use a torch, and rods of special, colored, silvered glass. The glass is melted and formed it into a round bead. The ashes are incorporated into a spiral design on the bead, then the entire design is sealed in a clear layer of glass. The ash becomes part of the bead and can always be kept close. Bead caps and head pins finish the bead into a pendant.
The colors are ethereal, like a planet or a universe, or the infinite heavens. Each individual bead is a unique and lasting gift – just like the memories of your pet.
***HOW IT WORKS***
If you decide to have me create an ash bead, I will send you a padded, pre-paid envelope, along with instructions and a container for safe transportation, along with a small spoon for measuring out the ashes. I only need a small amount (1 small spoonful per bead). You can also send photos and memories of your pet.
Within 3 – 7 weeks after receiving the ashes, I will ship the bead you requested, along with any photos and information you may have sent.
***FOR BUYERS OUTSIDE THE US***
As every country has it’s own set of rules on shipping ashes, you will need to arrange your own shipping to send ashes to me. Once you place your order, I’ll send an email with information on where to send the ashes.
The finished beads will be shipped back to you at no additional cost.
