FAQ

 

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.

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!!!
