I've never made fused glass remembrance jewelry before albeit, after a little research I gave her 3 options:
- putting the ashes between glass where the ashes can't be seen, she would know they are there but no one could see the ashes
- putting the ashes on the bottom layer with a clear cap on top so she could see the ashes from the front of the pendant
- lastly putting the ashes on the bottom layer which is clear so she could see the ashes but only from the back and not the front of the pendant
She chose to put the ashes where she could see the ashes from the back, blue glass on top and then fuse decals on top of the pendant. The decals she chose meant something to her and her good friend.
Additionally, we chose to put the ashes in a shape of a heart to show her love for her friend.
Fused Glass remembrance / memory jewelry can be a very personal and special way to keep someone's loved ones ashes close. This was an extreme honor for me to create such an important and personal piece of fused glass jewelry that I asked my Aunt if I could have some of my Uncle's ashes to make remembrance jewelry for me.
My Uncle Carl was so special to me, he was great with my daughter and me. He even came to Germany when I was stationed there. He, my mom and I went to Holland and traveled Germany and had a fabulous time and when I was stationed in Abilene we even got closer and I got to know my Aunt as well. So having the privilege to have my Uncle's ashes with me always, is very precious. Once I receive and make my remembrance jewelry with my Uncle's I will put pictures on the site as well.
BTW I asked my friend if I could use her pendant for my site and blog. As you can see it turned out beautifully and she was very happy with her pendant.
After making my friends I realized that it is a personal choice to have remembrance jewelry created. Therefore, I will customize fused glass remembrance jewelry, to fit your needs and desires. Your loved ones ashes (human or animal) are permanently fused in the glass so you have a memorial that you can wear and keep them close. Remembrance pieces can be almost any style on my site including: pendants, rings, etc.
