If you decide to have me create an ash bead, I will send you a padded, pre-paid envelope, along with instructions and a small tin where you will place the ashes. Send me about ½ teaspoon of ashes for each bead and any photo, letter, or story about your loved one. When your bead is complete, you will receive within 3 to 7 weeks, the bead or beads you requested and any photos and information you may have sent me. The bead will be finished with your choice of an 18 inch sterling silver or gold filled chain, and clasps. Bead caps and head pins finish the bead into a pendant. If you wish, you may send a photo of your loved one, the music that they like to listen to, and even a story about them. I will listen to their music, and look at their photo, and put good intentions, and energy, and heart into their bead. I am the sole artist.
This is not mass production done in a factory. Each bead is made one at a time, for the individual in my studio. My materials are of the highest quality. I use Italian, and American made glass. I use the clearest glass to encase the bead for the highest magnifying quality.
