Item details

I lost my beloved cat, Henry, in 2010. In my grief I wanted something of Henry's that I could carry with me every day; I wanted a part of him to always be with me. Luckily, I am a glass bead maker and so I set about learning how to encase ashes into beads. I liked the finished result, and more importantly, have taken such comfort in having his beads with me that I would like to be able to make a bead for you, with your pet's ashes.

I made several of these ornaments for people and they really like them. They have hung them in their kitchens, on their Christmas tree, or for guys -- on the rear view mirror in their cars. A unique way to keep your beloved pet with you during the day.

Your Ornament...
The focal bead I will make for you will be approximately 1/2" in diameter. Since each bead is individually hand made, the size might vary slightly. It will hang from a gold ribbon. You get a choice of one of the charms, photographed above, which will hang below your bead. If you have another idea for a charm, please let me know and I will find a special one for you.

The Bead Design...
You have a choice of one of the colors featured in the photo gallery, plus black (not pictured). Please let me know if you have a color in mind that you don't see; I can usually find whatever you are looking for. And, whichever color you chose, your bead will feature a special ash galaxy of dichroic swirls and murrini stars that I made.

If You Would LIke To Wear This As A Necklace....
A sterling silver snake chain is available for an additional $10, in 16", 18", or 20" lengths. Just let me know if you would like that option.

What I Need From You...
All that I need is about two tablespoons of your pet's ashes, and you will get most of that back. I don't need much ash for the bead, but I do need to sift it down to the point that it is usable. It will take 2 weeks to get your ashes, make the bead and send it to you. Please convo me if you have any other questions.

Once your order is placed, I will convo-e:mail you with my address. I will be insuring this bead when I mail it to you so that we can track it.

I would be honored to help you preserve your memories by making a bead for you.

    I have other pieces that Elise had made so I knew my memorial beads would be beautiful. They're even more stunning than I could have imagined. Thank you Elise for your love and care in making them.
