Mailing Inclusions

In each memorial product listing, we have noted whether that particular item comes with a collection kit or not. If your item requires you to send the cremation ashes, hair, fur or other inclusions directly, please follow the directions below. Alternatively, you may purchase a kit separately here for 15.00. This kit fee also covers a prepaid label (Domestic) to return the kit to us. 

DIRECTIONS FOR CREMATION JEWELRY:

  • Please send 1/2 teaspoon cremation ash in any container you feel comfortable with (I use "lipgloss pot" containers)

  • Seal that container inside of two separate ziplock bags

  • Include your name and address INSIDE of the ziploc bags or directly on the container (preferred)

 

DIRECTIONS FOR HAIR/FUR JEWELRY:

  • Please send a pinch of hair in any container you are comfortable with (many use folded over aluminum foil). If you are able, please keep the hair gathered into a single lock.

  • Seal that container inside of two separate ziplock bags

  • Include your name and address INSIDE of the ziploc bags or directly on the container (preferred)

 

DIRECTIONS FOR PRESERVED FLOWER JEWELRY:

  • Please send the dried flower in any foil, container, etc you feel comfortable with. We will only crush the parts we need to work with and will return any overage in the container/condition you sent it. Please note if your container can not be returned inside of a 10x6x1 mailing envelope we may reach out to you to cover any shipping overages. The petals do not have to be flat, but they do need to be dried as they may mildew in the mail if they still contain moisture when packaged.

  • Place the container in a Ziploc bag and include your name and address INSIDE of the ziploc bags or directly on the container (preferred)

 

MAILING THE INCLUSIONS:

I typically use a 10x6 yellow padded envelope to ship the container/bags, but you can ship in whatever packaging you feel comfortable. Unless discussed otherwise, it will be returned in a 10x6 bubble mailer.

 

Please ship USPS First class or higher to the following address. Note your tracking number for your own records. Please do NOT send a package to us without a tracking number if it can be avoided. It's extremely helpful if you do not abbreviate your name in the return field on the package. Please be sure that the name of the person who placed the order is on the outside of the package somewhere. Should you feel more comfortable using Fed Ex/UPS/etc, please email me at ashley@ashleylozano.com for a studio address as only USPS can deliver to post office boxes. For organization and security purposes, your package is not opened until it's time to start working with the inclusions. Please do NOT send any requests for a change to your order inside of your package for this reason. Any size, color, etc requests need to be emailed to ashley@ashleylozano.com and I will do my best to accomodate your changes where I am able.

In the likely event of having leftover ashes/hair, you may choose whether you would like them returned to you with the finished product 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. If you would like for any remaining ash to be scattered, please indicate this in your package. Otherwise, any leftovers will be returned to you. To check for any scheduled vacations that may impact our twice weekly package retrieval, please check the NEWS tab at ashleylozano.com

*If your purchase contains cremation ashes, someone at the delivery address will need to sign for the package at the time of receipt. If USPS is unable to obtain a signature, their official policy is to leave a notification slip and hold the package at your local post office for you to pick up in person. If the package is not picked up in a timely manner (Usps.gov states 15 days), then they may send the package back to me and postage will be owed again to reship. Please arrange to have someone available to sign for your signature tracked package, or to pick it up in a timely manner should you miss the attempted delivery. 

Thank you.
