The Process – 3 Easy Steps

 

The process of commissioning your own cremation jewelry is easy. I take care of most of the details so all you’ll need to do is place your order and use the kit I’ll send to return your loved one’s ashes to me.

The information below is repeated elsewhere on this website. This page is for those who want an ordered, detailed description of the process of commissioning your own memorial.

Below are the steps we’ll complete as we work together to create your memorial.

 

Place Your Order

Add the pieces that you’d like to your cart and checkout. When the order is complete you’ll receive a confirmation email and I’ll send out a kit you can use to send the ashes of your loved one to me.

 

Mail The Ashes

Within a week or so (for USA orders), you will receive a package from Psyche Cremation Jewelry. This is the kit you’ll use to send me the ashes of your loved one. In the kit will be a small glass jar, a measuring scoop, and a prepaid mailing envelope.

Just place one scoop (about 1/4 tsp) of ashes in the jar for each memorial ordered. Place the jar in the prepaid mailing envelope along with any photos or written memories of your loved one you’d like me to review before making your memorials. Then drop the prepaid envelope in your nearest mail box.*

* Orders from outside the US please visit the International Shipping page to choose a shipping option.

 

 Anticipate Your Memorials

When I receive your jar of ashes in the mail, I’ll note the date and put your package with the other memorials waiting to be made. The next time I’m in the shop doing my best work and feeling in good and centered space, I’ll reach for the top package.

I’ll open the package and read anything you’ve shared with me about your loved one. I’ll look at any photos you’ve included to get a sense of who they were before creating your memorials.

When your memorials are complete, I’ll put them in my hot glass kiln and anneal them at close to 1,200F degrees. This ensures that any stress points are relieved, making them strong and durable.

The next day, once your pieces have cooled, I’ll package them up safely along with any remaining ashes and photos you sent and send them via USPS First Class airmail. I’ll also send you a confirmation email so you’ll know to be watching for your package.

For customers within the continental US, the entire process from the time you send the ashes until you receive your cremation jewelry averages 2-4 weeks. During very busy or slow times, this can vary as much as 2 weeks longer or shorter depending on how many orders are in my queue. If you are in a rush, please let me know and I’ll do what I can to make sure you receive your finished pieces when you need them.

 

 

Testimonials

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!!!
