Ash Beads

Memorial pendants created through a collaboration with glass artist Merry Coor. 

Merry creates unique glass cabochons with cremation ash swirling throughout resulting in pieces that call to mind crashing waves and rotating galaxies. Each cabochon is as unique and beautiful as the loved one remembered. When the cabochons are complete Merry hands them off to me and I create the sterling silver settings.

It has been an honor to be a part of their creation and to help bring some small comfort to those who have experienced loss. As I work on each piece I try to focus on those that are important in my own life, to challenge myself to be a bit more present, to remember those who have passed, and to contemplate the great cycle of which we are all part.
