What Types of Glass are Available?
Several types of glass art are available for your choosing. Here are a few things that can be made using only a small amount of ashes.
Perhaps not an obvious first choice but something practical that can remain in the home for many years. Turning ashes into glass paperweights can be a simple and timeless memorial to your loved one. Not limited to the home, a paperweight can brighten up your office area. It is possible to get paperweights engraved as well if you want to personalise it further.
This is probably the option that comes to mind first. You can use ashes to create stones in sterling silver rings, necklaces, pendants, earrings, charms and bracelets and cufflinks. Jewellery like this can be worn every day, allowing you to always carry around a token of remembrance if that is what you want.
A piece of glass art to have on display is a popular choice. Heart-shaped ornaments on top of a fireplace, hanging orbs, glass urns and flowers are all design choices to consider. They can be a replacement for an urn, complement an urn beside it, or perhaps be the focus in a different room.
