Many people prefer to have the cremation ashes mixed with other inclusions and there are various options to select from below. You might prefer to have the ashes more prominently visible and this can be done on any colour of glass background with clear glass on top and made into pendants, rings, earrings, charms, cufflinks. Please take a look in my shop to see the range of jewellery I create and we can discuss options.
I only use a tiny amount of ash. The fine ash would be placed inside 2 layers of glass and fully fused in my kiln at approximately 800C which creates a shiny, smooth surface with the ashes permanently sealed inside. Tiny bubbles can appear inside the glass when ash is used - this can add to the uniqueness of your individual pieces. The finished glass is very robust - it is a 6mm deep solid piece of glass.
Please allow up to approximately 3 weeks (might be sooner) for finishing the jewellery and I send the finished jewellery by Royal Mail signed for post or you can collect if local. This is a bespoke service and takes extra care and time - prices can vary from £15 (for a simple glass charm) to £75 depending on the size and complexity of the piece.
