Over the years, many people have asked me how strong and durable this glass cremation jewelry is. I recently received an email from a customer in Hawaii who gave me permission to tell her story.

On Father’s Day, June 16, 2019 a small fire ignited a tank of medical oxygen and sparked a raging fire that only took 4 minutes to engulf her house in flames.

When the fire was finally extinguished, the house had burned to the ground and was a total loss.

 

Burned house

 

As she dug through the remains, there was nothing left except for the glass pendant she had commissioned me to make with her mother’s ashes a couple years ago. She said all the other glass in the house had melted into puddles but her pendant was still intact and undamaged.

If the ashes of her mom had been in any other type of urn, chances are very good that she would have lost them forever, but with the glass memorial she said she had the comfort of her mom there with her in the aftermath of the loss of everything she owned.

It warmed my heart to hear this story and I wanted to share it here to show how the borosilicate glass I use for these memorials is one of the best possible choices for preserving the ashes of your loved one or pet. With a melting temperature of around 2,000F, it clearly takes more than a house fire to destroy one of these pendants.

Spiral Galaxy Cremation Pendant Review by Robin Rogers

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.
