Glass Beach Pebble
Glass Beach Pebble: What is it about pebbles that fascinate us so much? Childhood memories, holidays, their form, shape, size, weight? Their colours or the smooth feeling in our hands. So often you come back with them in your pocket, or children simply insist that this or that pebble must be taken home.
These Glass Beach Pebbles are made from glass here in Devon and feel just like those you find on the beaches here, they contain a small amount of a loved pets ashes. Simple, discreet and tactile you can hold it whenever you need to.
Like a pebble each one is unique, sizes vary approx 6cm by 3 cm.
You can see the glassmakers creating memorial glass here.
Keeping the ashes
Many people keep their beloved pet’s ashes at home, some because they are not sure what to do with them, some because they are not yet ready to do something with them and some simply want to keep them close by, in the house. Sometimes, very well meaning, friends will give advice such as ‘it’s time to move on’ or ‘you’ll feel better if you scatter/bury them’. But only you will know how you feel about the loss of your loved one and only you will know when and if the time is right to do something else with the ashes.
Splitting the ashes
As long as there are no religious reasons it is worthwhile thinking about keeping some of your pets ashes, you can scatter or bury most of the ashes on a favourite walk perhaps, or at sea or on a favourite beach, but keep a small amount back to memorialise when you are ready. This will give you more time to decide what you want to do as your feelings may change over time.
When you purchase an ashes within glass ornaments we will send you a pack with everything you need to send a small amount – a teaspoon of ashes per item – securely to us. We will let you know that the ashes have arrived safely and then will hand deliver them to our local glassmakers. The ashes are kept securely in a safe until they are handmade by an experience glassmaker into your glass memorial. Once cooled the item can be engraved, if asked for, and then sent securely to you with the certificate of authenticity.
The process takes between 6 to 8 weeks from receipt of ashes.
