This listing is for a personalised memorial glass paperweight. As seen in the picture, memorial ashes are mixed with a gently shimmering silver powder so that they will show up better in the cloudy clear glass, then my paperweight mould is layered with clear glass, glass powder and enamel powder in colours of your choice, and the silver coloured ashes. The pictures show a memorial paperweight with dark green enamel and pale green glass powder.

The clear glass ends up slightly cloudy due to air bubbles trapped between the tiny fragments of glass. Once fired and re-fired till the effect is right, your paperweight will then be ground and polished to a smoother finish.

Simply send me a small sample of the ashes (I need less than a teaspoon worth, and any that remain unused will be sent back to you) and let me know which colours you would like in your paperweight. I can also mix the ashes with any other sparkly powder such as a gold, copper or bronze tone. I will offer advice on how to securely wrap and post the ashes once a purchase has been made.

Once I receive the ashes I will set about mixing and layering your paperweight, which will take around 3-4 weeks to complete as it requires several firings and some extra work with my grinder. If you have any time restrictions, please message me before placing an order for this item and I will see what my schedule looks like. Production time will be longer during December and the end of November.

Extra safety equipment (and great care) is used while I work with ashes. For memorial paperweights I use specifically purchased screened clear granules (called frit) which ensures the greatest quality of finished product. I take extra care with the sanding and polishing of these paperweights as they hold huge sentimental value for my customers.
