This keepsake necklace is made from 925 sterling silver. The dainty pendant measures 14mm tall and 6mm across and hangs from a sterling box chain. Your preferred length of chain can be chosen from the drop-down menu. A handmade domed "stone" is carefully created around your lock of hair or animal fur. I layer and shape my handmade stones methodically for maximum magnification of the hair provided. We have a wide assortment of colors that can be chosen for the background, viewable here. We suggest shimmer, flat, or chrome colors. Once I receive your package, if your hair is too light or dark for the background color you have chosen, you will be contacted before I start on your order. Examples of color combinations can be seen in the supporting photographs. Cremation ashes can also be added to your ring for an upcharge.
Love the idea but not the pendant? Most of my cremation items can be adapted to include hair and we love custom requests.
Please allow for slight variation from the photographs as hair/fur comes in many colors and textures which may alter the appearance of this ring.
In the PRIMARY photo, the following combination was used:
Color of hair: Black
Additives: Cream shimmer background
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.)
Please note your quoted turnaround time starts when I receive your package. Your order confirmation email will contain a link for confirming that I've received your package as well as an expected ship date.
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 customer's 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 hair or ash after creating your item, 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. Otherwise, any leftover ash or hair will be returned with the finished product.
Handmade in our pet/smoke-free home studio.
