Remembering a departed loved one is always riddled with mixed emotions. In the early stages of grief, we are filled with misunderstanding and anger for our loss. Maturity comes with time, and we eventually choose to remember them the way they were when they were happiest – surrounding ourselves in their warmth every time we close our eyes and think of their presence. Loving Ashes looks at three stunning cremation art pieces that truly capture the spirit of the departed in stunning glass craftmanship…
American glass art manufacturer, Tammy Rae, develops these exquisite European-style glass charm beads in a range of stunning colours. Each bead is hand-crafted with a small amount of a passed loved one’s ashes, and are strung onto a sterling silver bracelet – allowing the wearer to take their passed loved one’s spirit wherever they may roam.
