This twisted band compass ring is solid sterling silver with an antiqued and brushed finish. The center of the compass holds the cremation ashes you provide. The compass design is 9mm wide. A 2mm round domed "stone" is carefully created from the cremation ash you provide then professionally and securely set in the center of the ring. Customize your special bereavement memento by adding crushed (synthetic) opals, available in over 70 colors, which can be found here.
Please allow for slight variation from the photographs as cremation ash comes in many colors and textures which may alter the color of your cremation "stone".
In the example photos, the following combination was used:
Natural color of ash used: Light Gray
Additives: Crushed synthetic opal, OP23

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.
