“What a spectacular piece of incredible jewelry you made with my Mom’s cremains! Any of your pictures do not even begin to reflect what beauty this piece has about it. After receiving it in the mail, I had to just sit once unwrapping it and just admire it-the feelings that ran through me were almost surreal in nature. The best I can even put into words-is that it gives me peace…that simple! Your care and time-plus your professionalism-is very evident from how awe inspiring a piece I have. It is always close to my heart & gives me closure. I hope that anyone who has the desire to have this done, does so with you!! You did not disappoint!!”

Many of the folks who order cremation jewelry write me letters like the one above after they receive their pendants. It means a lot to me to hear how healing and comforting it is to wear these glass pendants and I’d like to share some of their words with you here.

Cremation Jewelry Testimonials

 

Justin Leonard <em>Bethlehem, PA</em>
Mark 1st off thank you so much for the beautiful pendant. Mom will now be able to be with me at all times from now on. I can’t thank you enough for the fantastic work you provide for people that have lost loved ones. This is just what I was looking for and I truly think is the best way to honor such a great person that has passed.

Thank you again you are a fantastic, wonderful, artistic kind person. Thank you for treating my mothers remains with dignity. The rest of the remains in the blue jar and silk bag blew me away very great!

I received my pendant today.  It is more beautiful than I’d hoped it would be.  Now that I have my two special pendants from my boys, Hanson and Vegas, I know I can spread their ashes when the time is right.

Thank you for giving me a wonderful way to remember them and not just have a couple boxes of ashes on the mantle.  You have an amazingly talented and crafted skill.  I have seen other artists cremation jewelry in person and am truly thankful I choose you to create my pendants.  Here’s hoping I won’t need to use your talent for several more years.

I was out of town when my pendant arrived but my husband took a photo and posted it for me so I was very excited to get home and see it. It is absolutely perfect in every way. I wore it to work the day after I got home. Everyone who sees it loves it.

It is obvious it was made by a person with a lot of emotions and good karma; it comes through in the piece. I will always treasure it and I thank you for it’s beauty and craftsmanship. And thank you for your kind words about Daniel. This pendant will always keep him close to my heart.

Mark, I just received the necklace today and it is absolutely beautiful!!! It exceeds any of my expectations!! This is the perfect way for me to remember my grandparents and to keep them close to me at all times.

Thank you so much for your wonderful artistry and the respect you showed the ashes of my grandparents. I have shared your website with my entire family and friends!

Dear Mark, I cannot thank you enough for the sweet gift, talent, & love that you put into your work. What a wonderful way to honor the ones we have lost.

I am so glad that I found your site, as I was really struggling with something meaningful & special to do with the little tin can that sits on my nightstand. Scatter the ashes? Keep them tucked away forever inside the tin can forever?

I saw your work and knew immediately that, although it was difficult to take a few scoops out of the can to send off to you, this was a perfect way to add a little more beauty & movement to the sad, stillness of the tin can. And it is something that I will wear & hold close to me always. It was the first of many steps to moving through the grief of losing my boy. I miss him always…Thank you so much, this life is beautiful.

 

Teena Miller <em>Allison, PA</em>
I needed to tell you that I got my piece today and I am so very happy. You captured the eternal and special love my father and I shared. I was completely at a loss as to how to honor a man that had meant more than words can describe and then I found this site and your work.

When I received the piece it was incredible. the glass warmed in my hand and I couldn’t stop looking at it. I truly felt close to my Papa and can’t thank you enough for the peace that that brings me.

 

Lisa Kaiser <em>Payson, AZ</em>
Dear Mark, after my brother and one of his sons were killed, 3 weeks later my father died also. When I was “surfing” to find some jewelry pieces for their ashes, I just couldn’t find anything that seemed to “fit.”  I come from a family of handcrafters and artists so when I somehow came across your web site, I knew I found the place.

As I read what you wrote on your website about the process in creating the pieces, then most importantly you asked to have a photo sent, along with a story about our loved ones so you could think of them while you created the piece, I could barely get through reading it without choking up and crying.  I knew you were the one.

Your pieces are so amazing!  They are MUCH more than I anticipated.  Not only are they gorgeous, but the clarity and FEEL is so right.  It was as if you knew we would be touching and holding these pieces forever.  Thank you again for making these pieces and thank you most of all for bringing some compassion to something that is very personal to us! I will continue to show off the pieces to everyone I can!!!

I just received a cremation necklace for Christmas that you made. It is a clear teardrop and I believe you made 4 necklaces (one for each of my sisters and my aunt). I have to say that it is probably the most emotionally important piece of jewelry that I will ever wear (next to my wedding ring).

Thank you for treating my father’s remains in a dignified and meaningful way. It brings tears to my eyes to think of how you have brought his energy and “life” back to me every time I look at the necklace. You are a gifted artist. Thank you again and I will refer you to anyone that I run across that is ever looking for a piece such as this.

Not sure why it entered my mind today to send you a message, but I wanted you to know how special the cremation pendant you made for me is. My beloved cat Olivia died on October 4, 2009 and you made the pendant for me shortly after that.

I don’t even know how to describe the reactions I get to it. From anyone’s perspective, it appears to be just a simple glass pendant. But people comment on it CONSTANTLY. I am not kidding. In the bank, in stores, etc. The person who asks is almost always someone who needs to talk about their pet they have lost. I am not new age-ish at all, but it is like it has an energy that reaches out to those who need it.

My mother and I travel together a lot, and she is actually weary of people commenting on it and my talking to them (she says “I know this story and walks away!), but even she concedes that God is putting me in the right place at the right time for people to notice it that need to talk. It frequently leads to a “dead cat/dog cry-fest” 🙂 but is cathartic for both me and the person who asked about my necklace.

So, I just wanted you to know how much it means to me. It is my most cherished possession and I wear it almost daily. Thank you for creating these wonderful works of art and emotion.

I cannot thank you enough for the gorgeous pendant you made me. I had my sweet, beloved Iris kitty’s ashes for over 5 years, and couldn’t bare to let them go. I kept the ashes for way too long, and didn’t know what to do with them. I didn’t have a special place I could spread them and I never had the closure of doing something special and meaningful with the ashes. I never had a funeral or celebration for all the years he made me feel happy and loved, until you made this amazing pendant for me.

I don’t even know you, but need you to know how much you have helped me. You didn’t just preserve my beloved kitty’s ashes in a beautiful glass art pice, you helped me remove this block out of my heart that I have been carrying around with me for 5 years now. I can finally let the pain go, start celebrating his life and the many years he made me so happy.

My pendant is priceless and so precious to me, and amazingly even looks like an (eye) iris. Every time I look at it, I will think of my sweet Iris boy, and how much I love him. You are amazing, talented, and so kind to offer this service to people, in such a beautiful and unique way. I will tell everyone I know about your website, and I will proudly wear my beautiful Iris pendant every single day. Thank you so much.

I highly recommend your work to others.

Sandra Peters <em>Antioch, CA</em>
Mark, two simple words, thank you, are so inadequate to express my gratitude. You have such a caring heart and soul to offer such beautiful keepsakes. Both spiral galaxies, the blue and the clear, are even more beautiful than the photos on your website.

The quality of the silver chain is a perfect choice that you made to offer us an easy shopping experience. You handled every aspect with utmost professionalism, including returning my photograph and the unused ashes. I have already contacted several of my friends to share my experience with your gift for custom keepsakes. Thank you so much Mark”
