This copper heart memorial necklace is created by mixing your loved one's ashes into the actual copper, and also shows an optional "viewing pane". The "viewing pane" is a heart shape cut out of the metal, and then filled with more ash and a clear jeweler's grade epoxy. If you would NOT like a viewing pane (solid metal pendant with no cut out), or if you would like the heart cut out but NOT filled with ash you can indicate that in the drop down menu . The leaf imprint on the copper is created from an actual leaf from my property nestled in the North Carolina mountains. Please note that each necklace is created from it's own special hand picked leaf, so the pattern may vary from the photographs.
This design requires just a pinch of ash. Upon purchase, a kit will be sent to you including a prepaid envelope for you to send the ashes to back to me. In the event of having left over ashes, you may choose whether you would like them returned to you with the pendant or scattered in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC... a place I am honored to call home. At my client's requests, I have taken ashes onto kayaking or hiking trips and respectfully scattered them among the beautiful scenery. I created my very first cremation pendant several years ago using my own father's ashes and a very carefully developed method. I wear it daily, and it brings me great comfort. I feel very honored to be able to offer others this comfort after suffering a loss and promise to treat your packages with as much respect as I did my own.
The copper heart measures approximately 1.25" across. Please choose from an assortment of antiqued sterling chains from the drop down menu. The pendant and chain comes in an antiqued/brushed finish. If you notice in the pictures, the consistency and color of your cremations give the copper a coarse look and the appearance of the viewing pane will differ from one order to the next based on this color/consistency of the ash. For other styles of cremation pendants, please view my shop. I offer many styles utilizing four different methods, all of them being permanent placement of the ash. I do not offer screw-cap designs, as I build my items to last and be handed down for generations.
Please note that wait time does not start until I receive your ashes.
If you are purchasing this item from outside of the US you will still receive a collection kit with a self addressed return envelope however return shipping costs will not be paid in advance on my end. Please return the kit from your local post office and make sure it has a tracking number and/or signature required.
