Urn Jewelry

Creating a lasting memorial for a loved one through art can be comforting and cathartic. An artistic memorial can be created with the ashes themselves or in the design of a special urn to hold the cremated remains in. The process can transform a painful memory and begin the healing process. This is the third in a four part series about different ways to memorialize and find a final resting place for a loved one who has chosen cremation.

Glass art can be an engaging way to create beauty from the ashes of cremated remains. Customizing and designing a piece to match your loved one's personality and spirit can help you feel closer to them and release grief. There are many different designs and items that can be made to incorporate ashes into glass. Common memorial glass pieces include heart paperweights, floats, sculpted flame and spheres. The glass art can even be customized at certain studios.

Art glass can even be turned into jewelry. Glass pendants can be shaped into the form of hearts, teardrops, or ovals with inscriptions on the back. The glass can even include a thumb or finger print. Life print jewelry can include portions of ashes stored inside a pendant that features a thumb or finger print on the outside of the pendant. There are also pendants that can be shaped into meaningful designs which store ashes inside a cavity within the pendant. These designs can vary from hearts to crosses, plants and animals.

Urns can be designed to be both functional and beautiful. There are a variety of hidden urn options from a picture frame urn to a mantel clock urn, book urn and candle holder urn. Another type of display urn are engraved urns. Wooden urns can be engraved with landscapes and scenery on the front such as lighthouses and butterflies. Stone urns can be sculpted to include sayings or designs on them. Porcelain urns can display meaningful paintings and metal urns can be symbolically shaped in designs such as a life flame.

A cemetery may have an urn garden present. Stone urns can be perfect to place in an urn garden as a statue dedicated to your loved one. Additionally, biodegradable urns can be a great option for an urn garden. These urns can come in a variety of mediums from salt and sand to earth and paper.
