Contemporary way of keeping memories alive

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

In previous centuries it was custom for people to keep a lock of hair of a loved one that had passed away and then wear it inside a heart locket pendant. Once photography was invented, people switched to keeping photographs of a loved one inside a locket.

When losing a loved one, it often feels as if your entire world has shattered. Having to make decisions in a time of grief is quite horrible and afterward many people feel that they had made decisions in haste or have made the wrong decisions. There is a beautiful alternative to keeping memories alive; ashes in glass.

Memories sculpted in glass

A simply beautiful way to keep the memories of a loved one alive is to have a sculpted memory glass keepsake made to keep the ashes in glass. Instead of the traditional locket, a small portion of the ashes it inserted in a hand blown glass ball that is a truly unique and stunning memorial. The ashes in glass come in unique styles and each of them are completely different from all others.

What is created is a contemporary object art that looks lovely wherever you wish to place it in a room. For even greater choice we at Lay to Rest offer ashes in glass in pendant form as well as touch stones.

The pendants can be worn everywhere and the touch stones carried safely in a pocket. Many people find this contemporary way of keeping the memories of a loved one alive a great comfort. All the ashes in glass keep sakes are durable and professionally sculpted to ensure a lifetime of fond memories.
