Jewellery for Ashes Ideas

I have been making memorial jewellery and other keepsakes containing cremated ashes for the last 10 years so I thought I would illustrate some of the options that I have available. I take pride in offering a fully personalised service when it comes to making the jewellery, however if you would like to see some previous examples, please visit my Jewellery for Ashes gallery of images.

The resin jewellery and keepsakes for ashes have an advantage over glass jewellery because they can be further personalised with the addition of other objects. I can provide most items such as real forget me not flowers, however if the customer wishes to send their own sentimental items (for example photographs) to be included within the jewellery, that is fine too.

Resin Pendants for Ashes

The resin pendants for ashes can be made in many shapes and sizes; the pendants can be coloured, and other objects incorporated into the design (small flowers, silver lettering for names, dates etc). The resin pendants have a three dimensional appearance and really do look beautiful with the ashes suspended throughout.

Sterling Silver Pendants for Ashes

As with my resin pendants for ashes, the sterling silver pendants can also be made in many shapes and sizes. These pendants however have an additional benefit; due to the silver backing to the pendants, I can also engrave names, dates and personalised messages onto the back of the pendant. The sterling silver pendants for ashes are generally smaller than my resin pendants. I can still incorporate small objects such as real forget me not flowers into the design, and the pendant settings can also be coloured.

Rings for Ashes

I currently make several different styles of rings for cremated ashes. The ring settings containing the ashes can be left clear or coloured to any colour; the rings are all sized to fit the correct finger size.

Bracelets for Ashes

My sterling silver bracelets for ashes are formed by linking sterling silver oval charms containing the ashes together. The sterling silver bracelets can be sized to suit and I can engrave the back of each charm with names, dates and messages. The bracelet charms can hold ashes, photographs, a lock of hair, small flowers etc.

Alternatively, any of my pendant shapes and designs detailed above can be supplied as hanging bracelet charms. The charms containing the ashes are all fitted with a silver jump ring that can be connected directly to a bracelet or alternatively I can also add a lobster clasp clip.

Cufflinks for Ashes

The sterling silver cufflinks settings containing the cremated ashes can be coloured, left clear, and other objects included if required (small flowers, initials, hearts, stars etc).

Keyrings for Ashes

Any of my pendant shapes and designs illustrated above can be supplied as keyrings for ashes. The resin keyrings have an added benefit being double sided. The ashes and other objects can be encased within one side of the keyring and a photograph or personalised messaged displayed on the reverse side.

Paperweights for Ashes

My memorial paperweights containing ashes can be made as an alternative to a piece of jewellery. The paperweights can be made either domed or square and I can incorporate other objects such as flowers, photographs and personalised messages into the paperweights.
