Urns and Ashes Jewellery ? A Lasting Tribute

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

Cremation is increasingly popular and is now a widely accepted way of saying goodbye to your loved one.  The rise in popularity has led to an increase in the choice of materials, presentation and styles of cremation urns and other ashes jewellery available to grieving relatives.

Cremation urns have been used for thousands of years and you can find traditional designs and the option to make them custom made.  If you have made the decision not to scatter your loved one’s ashes then selecting a special container to hold the ashes or to provide family members a keepsake is a beautiful way to commemorate those who have passed away.

More families choose to divide the remains between the family in ashes jewellery or choose to put ashes in glass.  Another idea is to select an ash casket to hold the remains.  In cases where several family members would like a keepsake, then small vessels in the form of jewellery or glass containers can be a unique and stunning way to remember that person.

When choosing your ashes vessels think about whether it is to be displayed or kept somewhere private.  When that decision has been made you can better decide on the style and type of vessel.

Many people choose to personalise cremation urns in the same way people customise grave stones.  By personalising you can give comfort to the grieving family and add dates, special words or emblems to the urn.  By personalising cremation urns you provide a lasting tribute to a life lived.

At Lay To Rest we offer compassionate advice so that you can choose the most appropriate urns for your loved one.

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.

Visiting your deceased friend or family member at the crematorium can bring much comfort in the time following the loss of a loved one. However it is not always possible to make a journey out and there may be times when having a small keepsake at home will allow you to find the space within your own four walls to remember someone who was close to you.

Ashes jewellery is a beautiful way of creating a small portable memorial to your loved one that you either keep with you at all times or choose to wear when you want to feel close to them and take time to remember. It is an ever increasingly popular choice and these jewellery pieces can be personalised in such a way that imbibes it with true sentimental value.

Ashes jewellery can be made in necklace or bracelet form. A small compartment holds a minute portion of the cremation ashes. Jewellery comes in a variety of finishes and they can be personalised by engraving your loved one’s name and dates.

Another stunning keepsake is that of ashes in glass. No two pieces are alike and they provide you with a breathtaking memorial that will last a lifetime. A small amount of ashes and encapsulated in a glass globe which come in a variety of colours and designs. At Lay to Rest we will take time to talk through how you would like to personalise the ashes in glass to make it truly personal to you and your loved one.

Using jewellery as a memorial

Saturday, July 11th, 2009

Saying goodbye to a loved one is incredibly difficult, although cremation urns can keep the memory alive by placing it in homes or gardens. This is often not enough to help people adjust to the loss and they want something more personal. Ashes jewellery is the most wonderful way of keeping a part of the loved one with you always.

Using a physical object for prayers is a long tradition and prayer beads are used today still. So it is not difficult to understand the concept of ashes jewellery as a physical object of comfort to the bereaved. That is why the popularity of ashes jewellery has grown greatly in the past few years. We at Lay to Rest understand the need for keepsake jewellery and strive to fulfil the wishes and needs of people.

Precious memories kept close

People often view ashes jewellery as a miniature cremation urn that they can carry with them wherever they go. This is a wonderful option when choosing to scatter the ashes of a loved one and then keeping a small part with you as a memorial. The ashes jewellery we offer are made from precious metals and crafted to a high standard.

There are many different designs in the ashes jewellery pendant range from religious objects, quarts crystal pendants and memory glass pendants. All the pendants are designed with a special cavity to hold a small amount of ashes.

We also have a special blown glass dome that can be engraved as a place of safety for these special ashes jewellery when it is not being worn. The glass dome can also be used as a permanent place for ashes jewellery if you prefer not to wear the jewellery at all.

Keeping a loved one’s memory alive

Friday, June 26th, 2009

Losing a loved one, whether husband, parent or child is the most intense trauma we can suffer.  It is a time when the mind simply cannot cope with all the decisions and arrangements that must be made in a very short period of time.

There are so many legalities and so much paperwork involved it often adds greatly to the distress. Often it is only long after the funeral service is over that a person thinks of things that he or she would like to do to help keep the memories of their loved one at the front of their minds.

Modern life is so fast paced and rushed.  In many ways the world simply no longer caters to the emotional needs of those who have suffered bereavement. You are expected to return to work, smile and take up your daily tasks. People will give you a sympathetic pat on the shoulder and it is full steam ahead.

Visible memory

Where does that leave the person who has suffered the loss? Most often feeling empty and numb. So often people want a tangible way to hold onto the precious memories of their loved one to give them comfort and strength when they are finding things tough.

Ashes jewellery and memorial keepsakes are a wonderful way of doing this. Ashes jewellery enables you to keep a tiny bit of your loved one with you at all times.

Memory stones or touchstones are a perfect example. When you feel the loss most deeply, it is comforting to touch or just hold the touchstone and feel that a part of your loved one is still close to you. These keepsakes are a wonderful innovation and have become very popular. It is a tangible link with your loved one and in our rushed world having something to hold onto is very important.
