A unique way to preserve your loved one…

holding_heart-300x214 img_1179-768x1024I came  across a company in Seattle, Washington called Artful Ashes.  They have come up with a unique way to hold the memory of a loved one – a piece of glass art.  All you have to do is send them about a tablespoon full of ashes and they will turn it into art.  Their designs are in the shape of hearts or spheres, measure approximately 3 ½ by 3 ½ inches and weigh about 14 ounces.  The ashes you provide are swirled through the design and can be seen in the finished piece.  If you like, you can include a short inscription on the memorial.

Some people I mentioned this idea to thought it was creepy; others liked it.  Regardless, it’s a beautiful piece of art and something to be considered.  There are many unique ways to preserve the ashes of a loved one.  This is just one more new one.
