Can you put hair/bone/teeth/etc. into glass cremation jewelry?
Unfortunately, no. Materials such as hair, bone, and teeth would immediately incinerate if I tried to melt them into glass on my 2,000*+ torch. The only reason I’m able to encase cremation ashes in hot glass is because the ashes have already been reduced to their basic elements in the crematory.
Are the round pendants flat or round on the back?
The round cremation pendants have a flat back that lays nicely against your skin. The front of these pendants is rounded in a convex “lens” shape that slightly magnifies the ashes and design inside and gathers light into the pendant.
Can you make a “cabochon”?
Yes, I can make any of the round memorial pendants without the loop at the top. You can then take this cabochon to your local metalsmith or woodwork artist and have them create a setting for it.
Can you make me a custom designed cremation pendant?
The glass cremation memorials featured on this website have been developed through many hours of creative experimentation. The colors, patterns and shapes have been carefully chosen for a variety of reasons including durability and the ability to replicate the design of a piece.
It is sometimes possible to make small changes in a design (like the background color of a pendant). However, any custom design that differs significantly from the designs on my website would probably require too many hours in experimentation and development.
