If you are searching for a truly unique memorial, look no further than our "Kaleidoscope" cremation urn necklaces. These pendants are custom-built to your specifications from raw sterling silver and natural stones. The cremation ashes you send us are placed under your stone of choice and can be seen moving freely under the stone as you move the piece. As we have a large variety of transparent and semi-transparent stones in varying shapes, sizes, and clarity, we ask that you message us prior to purchasing to handpick your stone. Your purchase includes the pendant, your choice of chain, synthetic crushed opals in your color choice, and custom engraving. After purchase we will send you a link to a Google form where you can indicate your preferred chain, engraving request, etc.
Our current stones available can be viewed here.
The price of this item does NOT include a collection kit to retrieve your cremains. If you prefer to receive a kit (complete with return domestic shipping label), one can be purchased separately from my shop here.
Alternatively, 1/4 tsp of ash can be mailed directly to me using the directions and address listed in the email you will automatically receive after purchasing this item. (If this email has not been received within ten minutes of your purchase, please check your spam folder.)

This design is also available as a ring or bracelet!

Ashley Lozano is a self-taught silversmith specializing in highly personalized jewelry made from your pet's actual prints, cremations ashes, fingerprints, handwriting, baby footprints, sound waves, and more. She began creating jewelry in 2011 after looking for a necklace with her first born's name on it and failing to find anything she felt spoke for the overwhelming amount of love she had for him. Her first memorial cremation piece was created shortly after with her own father's ashes, whom she lost at an early age. Her work and techniques are ever-evolving as she aims to help her customers embrace and champion over their grief, something she has struggled with for much of her life.
Ashley grew up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and relocated to North Carolina in her early twenties. She lives among the Blue Ridge Mountains- just outside of Asheville- with her two beautiful and wild sons and her woodworking Veteran husband. We look forward to working for you.
In the likely event that you have leftover ash after creating your item, the ash can be mailed back to you or you can opt for me to scatter them locally 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. Please leave a note in your package to opt-in for this complimentary service.
Caring for your jewelry: Although we seal the metal around the gemstone as tightly as we can, it is closed by hand using the same processes as setting other gemstones. For that reason, we recommend not submerging the pendant in water, though showering is perfectly fine. If your necklace does become humid or damp inside, please do not worry as it will dry naturally. As with all jewelry, we recommend avoiding heavy chemicals, hot tubs/pools, and water sources with heavy sulphur as it will tarnish the metal.
Handmade in our pet/smoke-free home studio.
