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. To order any of the round memorials as a cabochon, please contact me or mention it in the “notes” section on the checkout page.
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 2,000F degree 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.
Can you make a custom designed cremation pendant?
The glass cremation memorial designs I offer have been developed through many hours of experimentation. The colors, patterns and shapes have been carefully chosen for a variety of reasons including durability and the ability to replicate the design.
It is often possible to make small changes in a design (like the background color of a pendant). Custom designs that differ significantly from the ones I’ve aready perfected would likely take quite a bit of extra time to develop and would be priced accordingly. Please contact me if you would like to discuss a custom variation to one of my existing designs or discuss a possible custom designed memorial.
