What’s the Most Comforting Thing About Owning Cremation Glass Jewellery?Kenny Scott | Apr 28, 2017 | Cremation Glass Jewellery
Are you considering buying cremation jewellery to remember someone special?
Memorial glass jewellery can be a beautiful way to celebrate the memory of a loved one, and keep them close to you. As an experienced glassmaker, I see these special pieces of jewellery bringing happiness and comfort to people on a regular basis – it’s part of what makes my job so worthwhile.
But what’s so comforting about cremation glass jewellery? Well, the best people to really tell you that, are the ones who have already experienced it for themselves.
Below are some of the comments from my own customers who have had memorial jewellery made either for themselves or a family member.
The most comforting thing about cremation jewellery
Creating memorial glass jewellery really makes me feel like I’ve made a difference, and it’s a lovely thing knowing you’re bringing that comfort to someone. It gives people something they can keep hold of forever, bringing them comfort on even the darkest of days. And there’s definitely something to be said for the fact that no matter where they go, they can take their loved ones with them.
One example of this comes from Lesley Anne Driscoll, who said: “I went with my Step-mum today to collect the most beautiful ring made with my Father’s ashes. We have chosen a ring to be made for me too. We are devastated by the loss of my Dad, but this jewellery is so special and it somehow will feel as though we have a part of him next to us forever.”
Gillian Fulton will always have a way to keep her daughter close. She said: “The end results are beautiful, I love my ring and it is the perfect way to have my daughter (who was stillborn last year) with me at all times. We couldn’t have asked for more.”
Sometimes people even choose to have ashes combined into one extra special piece of jewellery. Like Pam Hennigan, who stated: “[I got a] beautiful ring and charm beads made from my mum and dads ashes. I am simply over the moon with them and it is such a comfort knowing that they are with me all the time.”
Memorial jewellery can also be a great comfort for those who haven’t necessarily chosen a traditional route when saying goodbye to a loved one. One example of this is Rosemary McCallum, who said: “We lost my Dad just over 3 years ago now, he had donated his body to science and we recently received his ashes back. Without having had a ‘normal’ farewell process my mum took some time to decide what she wanted to do. She felt absolutely that it was the right thing.
“I have a charm which is just lovely, I picked the colour and am now wearing on my necklace that has my children’s finger prints on it. My middle boy is convinced it has grandpa’s eye in it and he kissed and cuddled it before bed.”
In my experience as glassmaker, and the nature of the work involved when making cremation glass, you have to take so much care in what you’re doing – knowing that one piece of jewellery will mean so much to its recipient. Saying that, the processes between different companies will vary, and experience is so important.
That’s why reading positive reviews and testimonials from a company can be incredibly reassuring when choosing a cremation glass company. But that’s not the only advice I’d offer…
Advice from an experienced glassmaker
If you’re looking for a reputable memorial glass company you can trust, the best advice I can give you is to thoroughly research different products and companies online. When you find a product you really like the look of, write down any questions that stick out to you, or use this blog post as a guide.
The best way to feel confident you’re making the right decision is to call up and speak to someone over the phone. A good cremation glass jewellery company should hopefully be happy to answer your questions, and ease your mind, BEFORE you commit to buy.
