Once your loved one’s ashes are in my possession
they will be treated with the upmost respect
as if they belonged to a member of my own family.
When you place your order, a carefully prepared collection box will arrive containing everything you need to send us a very small amount of ash for your glass cremation jewelry memorial. We care for your loved one’s ash as if it belonged to a member of our own family during the entire process. You will receive a carefully prepared collection kit within a few days of placing your order. If you find this step to be difficult (completely understandable and know that you are not alone in feeling that way), we advise that you make contact with the place where you received your the ash, usually the funeral home. They will be very understanding and quite willing to take care of this step for you. Let me know if you have any questions about this process or that of creating your memorial.
What does the ash do in the glass?
This is the beauty of the process! Your loved one’s ash will be the #1 unique quality design feature of your special piece. The ash creates tiny sprays of air bubbles that can be seen by viewing the close up shots of each of my pieces. How much or how little of this beautiful element will vary with each piece.
How do you put the ash into the glass?
Using ancient techniques, the ash is carefully melted and mixed with artisan glass. From there, I use this ash infused glass to create your one of a kind memorial work of art.
About Glass Art:
Please be aware that glass is a medium that tends to be one of a kind. Each piece is unique and can not be duplicated exactly. Colors and detail will be different with each piece. I want you to be 100% satisfied with your order so please consider this when you purchase.
How will you receive the ashes?
Once your order is placed I will send you your collection kit.
A small container, tiny spoon, satin bag, instructions
and a prepaid return shipping label will all be included.
Do you create using pet ashes?
Absolutely! It would be my honor. As with my memorials to honor people, pets have such an incredibly special place in the hearts of so many of us. Please share pictures and stories about your precious pet, I find that information very helpful with my process. We have a special website just for pets. Rainbow Bridge Memorial Glass
