Pet Urns by Ruth Harrison
Introducing our new range of Arcadia Pet Urns by Ruth Harrison exclusively for My Pets Ashes.
We are thrilled that Ruth has designed this beautiful collection solely for us. Ruth is an incredibly talented local ceramicist who qualified at the brilliant Plymouth College of Arts. It was during her final year that Ruth discovered her joy of creating patterns by applying multiple shapes to a single form. Since leaving college over ten years ago she has honed her skills, experimenting with colours and glazes. Based in South Devon Ruth is inspired by the beautiful flowers she can see from her garden studio.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Is it ok to keep your pet’s ashes?
Many people keep their 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’. You are the only one who will know how you feel about the loss of your pet. And only you will know when and if the time is right to do something, if ever, with their ashes.
Until then a simple scatter tube or beautiful urn will keep them safe.
Should I turn my pets ashes to jewellery?
As long as you have a teaspoon of your pet’s ashes you can create a beautiful and unique pendant, ring, earring, bracelet, charm or tie-pin from them. We work with some of Devon’s most talented jewellers to make stunning pet memorial jewellery. You can find out more here.
What type of pet urn is best for my pet’s ashes?
The most important thing to think about when choosing your pet urn is size. You need to make sure that your pet urn will hold all your pet’s ashes. You can read my article about correct sized pet urns here. Are you going to keep your pet’s ashes in your garden or your home? You can read about the different options here.
For garden urns you will find everything you need to know here. If you are keeping the urn indoors then you will need to decide what you is going to work best in your home. We have a wide range of pet urns to suit all homes and decor schemes.
How to overcome pet loss?
I wish I could tell you that you will overcome the loss of your pet in a year. But I can’t. Each pet loss is completely different. Each pet bereavement takes it’s own time and will vary in the intensity and the length of time to cope. There are lots of practical things that you can do to help yourself.
