The passing of a family member or friend is one of the hardest experiences we can face. The healing process can take quite a while and an important part of that process is being able to feel our loved one’s continued presence in our lives.

Glass cremation jewelry is one of the most elegant and artistic ways to ground that feeling with a physical object. Wearing something that contains the ashes of your loved one brings them quite literally close to your heart and reminds you of their presence. Every time you put your pendant on, see it in the mirror, or receive a compliment on it you’ll be reminded of your loved one’s continuing presence with you.

All the cremation pendants on this site are handcrafted by myself, an individual artisan in the USA, and they are strikingly different from anything you might have seen before. This is because the ashes of your loved one are actually transformed into the focal design of the pendant…they become part of the art!

I carefully encase the cremains in molten glass and use them to form different designs inside the pendant. The clear glass shows the ashes off beautifully and allows the light to play off the hundreds of tiny CO2 gas bubbles the ashes create as they are absorbed into the glass. The size and patterns of the bubbles can’t be controlled but happen organically as the glass and ashes mix and fuse together in different ways. For this reason, no two pendants will ever be alike.

Refunds and Exchanges

Due to the custom and personal nature of cremation memorials, I cannot accept returns. However, during the years I've been creation cremation memorials, I've only had one customer tell me she wasn't completely pleased with her pendant. If for some reason you aren't pleased with the pieces I create for you, please do contact me and I'll see what I can do to change that.
