I have made some very beautiful pieces in Pyrex that can be easily
adapted to contain human or pet ashes. I put the ashes into a
pyrex tube and collapse the tube, removing all air from around it.
I then incorporate the pyrex tube into a marble, briolette, bead,
or pendant, including 24 kt. gold, fine silver, 50 diffeent colors,
mystic dichroic glass backgrounds.
Once the ashes are immersed into the pyrex, they can be manipulated
as glass, swirled, colored, given backgrounds…the possibilities are
After the piece is made, it can then be incorporated into fine
Jewelry. A marble can be enclosed into a hinged round cage, so the
piece can be removed.
A flat pendant can be wire wrapped or enclosed into a backless
bezel, so it can be rubbed as a worry stone.
Jean Stark designed a piece years ago and taught it in her classes.
It is granulated Acorn , with the top being 22kt gold with beautiful
granulation, and the bottom being an emerald cut to the porpotions
of an Acorn. I’ll ask Jean if she minds, but I think this would
adapt beautifully to a pendant with the loved ones remains suspended
in glass under a canopy of 22Kt gold beautifully adorned with
granulation by Jean.
I will make several samples this weekend and put them on my web page
so yall can see and perhaps offer to your customers who need such a
If there is any interest, I can photo the whole process and put it
up there also. Its really qutie simple, and the piece can be made as
mellow or as elegant as you wish, its up to the Artist or customer.
Love and God Bless
