Modern Memorials: Transforming Ashes into Timeless Glass Art

In today’s world, there are countless ways to honour the memory of a loved one through their cremated remains. Choosing the right option can be challenging, but many find solace in the unique beauty of cremation glass jewellery.

The Journey to Ash Glass

People often ask me why I chose this path—creating stunning pieces of glass art incorporating the ashes of loved ones. It’s a process that can evoke strong feelings; some people are captivated by the idea, while others might be hesitant.

My journey began when a funeral director friend approached me with the idea of incorporating ashes into glass. Intrigued, I decided to give it a try. The results were not only visually spectacular but also deeply meaningful, knowing I was creating something special for someone in mourning.

Why Choose Cremation Glass Jewellery?

A Beautiful Tribute

Transforming ashes into glass can create breathtaking results, whether it’s a piece of jewellery or a work of art. With over 30 years of experience as a glassmaker, I’ve mastered various techniques to produce visually vibrant sculptures and canvases. These pieces can serve as a stunning tribute to your loved one, reflecting their personality and keeping their memory alive. A special piece of jewellery, such as a pendant or ring, can be a wearable reminder that they are always in your heart.

A Special Keepsake

There’s something incredibly comforting about having a part of your loved one with you at all times. A beautifully crafted pendant, ring, or pair of cufflinks can be a deeply personal keepsake, something you can wear and treasure every day.

Treasured Gifts

Cremation glass pieces also make thoughtful gifts for family members and close friends. Many clients choose to have multiple pieces made, creating cherished mementos for loved ones to hold dear.

The Personal Touch

The process of creating ash glass pieces is handled with the utmost care and dedication. Each piece is lovingly handmade, ensuring that your loved one’s ashes are treated with the respect they deserve. I personally communicate with my clients throughout the process, which typically takes around two weeks, so you always know what to expect.

Affordable Elegance

Having ashes incorporated into glass is not only a beautiful way to remember a loved one, but it is also an affordable option. While prices can vary, I believe everyone should have the opportunity to create something as meaningful and lasting as this.


If you’re seeking a lasting memento to honour your loved one, consider transforming their ashes into glass. The result is a beautiful, comforting tribute or a personal keepsake that you can cherish forever. These pieces also make special gifts for family members and friends, offering a tangible connection to the memories you hold dear.
