Ashes to Glass
If you are looking for unique memorial gifts as an alternative to gravestones and plaques to remember your loved one by then we think that memorial jewellery is the perfect solution. We understand the importance of being able to remember someone who has passed and every contribution they made to the lives of the people around them. Wearing a memorial bracelet or another piece of jewellery, we think symbolizes a togetherness and allows the spirit to live on alongside their loved one or can just act as a reminder to ensure they are always in the hearts and minds of those who loved them.
Ashes into glass is when you have the ashes of your loved one put into handmade fine memorial jewellery that you can wear on a daily basis or keep in a special place. The process is very delicate and requires expert jewelers who hand make the items which means every single one is unique just like the loved one you have lost. All they need is a spoonful of the ashes per item to filter out the perfect size and colour particles. The glass is then hand-crafter in a workshop using traditional techniques where the ashes, glass crystals and molten glass are layered into a stone. This is then cut, toughened, polished and set. You can choose to have them engraved or different colours, shapes and sizes to suit your personal requirements.
It acts as a memorial keepsake because it will remind you of your loved one whenever you put it on and when you come across something that reminds you of the person you have lost then you can feel connected to them as though you are sharing these special moments together.
The ashes can be made into earrings, necklaces, rings, cufflinks, bracelets, pendants or even paperweights. Whether these are used day-to-day or just on special occasions such as the anniversary of the death, memorial jewelry acts as a consistent reminder. They are more durable than metal, stationary and stone so will stand the test of time.
A memorial gift can be given to the family or friends of the loved one or to a charity they supported during their lives, they acts as a legacy. Earrings, rings or necklaces can be given as memorial service gifts alongside funeral stationary to enable the people closest to the person who has passed away to all share a piece of them. This represents how one person has connected so many friends and family and brought them together. This carries intense sentimental value and allows their legacy to live on. This is a timely reminder of someone who has sadly passed away.
