Losing a loved one is never easy. It is so difficult to say that final goodbye. Everyone has their own way of dealing with this. For some people, they gain comfort by continuing to have a part of their loved one close by in the form of jewellery. Being asked to make a piece of memorial jewellery for someone is such an honour for me. Every piece of jewellery I make is precious to me, but there is something extra special about being asked and trusted to make something to help someone keep a loved one close to them and help them through the grieving process. This part of my business means much more than a business to me. I want to do whatever I can to provide some comfort for you. If you would like to order some jewellery I want to make the process as easy as possible and will do anything I can to help you and can assure you that your jewellery will be handmade with all the love, care and attention it deserves so you have a precious keepsake of your treasured loved one. We can go back and forth as many times as you want while you decide and I will go at your pace. I am here to help you and work with you to so you get exactly what you want.
Traditional Fingerprint Jewellery
This requires a print taken in a special putty. If you have the print already then please get in touch and we can discuss how best to get it to me. If possible I always like to see the print before you order so I can advise on what size jewellery will work best with the beautiful prints you have. If you order first, when I receive the print I will always speak with you before starting the jewellery to confirm what you have ordered works with your precious print.
Contemporary Fingerprint Jewellery
The jewellery features an enlarged section of a fingerprint. It requires a print that is either taken with ink or pencil and sellotape. You will find many funeral directors will be able to take this print for you. I then need either the original or a very clear photograph of the fingerprint emailed to me. It’s a really beautiful and subtle piece of jewellery that to others looks like a lovely pattern, but you know what it symbolises.
Every piece of ashes jewellery I make is completely bespoke. You can choose how you want your ashes displayed, what colour you would like in your jewellery, whether you would like a finish to the resin and of course the type of pendant, or whether you would prefer a brooch, earrings or a bracelet. As you can see there are so many variations. Some people know exactly what they want when they order, whereas others aren’t sure. I am happy to be as involved as you want, helping you with ideas and chatting things through. We can go back and forth as many times as you want. It will always be your decision but I am here to help when you want it and you can take as long as you need choosing your jewellery. I specialise in pet ashes but also work with human ashes, and give the ashes the utmost respect at all times.
