Remembrance handmade Dichroic glass infused cremation Butterfly pendant.
Your loved ones ashes are kiln fused into the pendant.
Each pendant is made with subtle rainbow dichroic on a choice of coloured bases. Each one is unique. A metallic gold and white butterfly completes the design.
Supplied with a sterling silver tube bail & 18" sterling silver snake chain.
I understands just how much you treasure the memory of your loved ones. By fusing a small amount of the ashes into your chosen glass and finishing with your preferred design; you will have a unique memorial by which to remember them.
Your pendant will be hand made in my studio in West Yorkshire.
Made with love, respect and care; a beautiful one and only keepsake to be cherished forever.
Pendants can be made in many colours not just the ones pictured in either square or circular design. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or wish to discuss an order.
Each pendant is individually made to order and measures approx 4cm X 2cm and comes complete with a high quality sterling silver bail and 18" sterling silver snake chain, black resin gift box with black velvet cushion.
Due to the irreplaceable nature of this item, I use Royal Mail Special Delivery, tracked & signed for. This ensures safe delivery.
Made with several layers of Dichroic glass and bullseye art glass arranged in layers (ashes would be put into one of the layers) and fused in a kiln for 7 hours reaching temperatures of 1400°,then allowed to cool slowly overnight inside the kiln. This prevents any thermal shock and also anneals the piece making it incredibly strong.
The item is then ground into a neat shape in a water fed grinder and put back in the kiln for a further 7 hours to fire polish and again left in the kiln overnight to cool slowly.
The Butterfly enamel decal is then applied and left for 24 hours to complete dry (this prevents any bubbling to the image) and then placed in the kiln for a 3rd time of 5 hours to fire on to the pendant. (The image is not a sticker or transfer so once fired on will not peel or scratch off)
Finally the bail is applied using a very strong appoxy resin and left 24 hours to cure before shipping.
I have given the delivery time as 3-4 weeks in case I don't have the required glass in stock
but will strive to have the pendant to you within 2 weeks. Each of these custom makes are kiln fired separately and no other items will be fired at the same time. In the case of having several orders at the same time I have a very stringent safeguards in place so ashes can not get mixed up.
Due to the nature of dichroic glass and the firing process each pendant is unique so varies slightly from the pictures above, this is why I have chosen the above colours as they are the most consistent so they will come out almost identical to the ones shown.
I tend to put the ashes under the image so they can't really be seen. But if you would prefer the ashes to be more visible over the entire pendant I can do that just let me know. It is an entirely personal choice (see pictures to give you an idea with the ashes hidden behind the butterfly or more visible)
I only require a small amount of ashes (tea spoon) any unused will be returned with the finished pendant. Once you have ordered and paid please send the ashes to me in a secure registered/signed for post. To ensure safe delivery the finished pendant will also be sent to you via Royal Mail Special Delivery.
Due to the nature of this piece I can not refund you once the first firing has taken place but of course I will refund at any time up to this if you change your mind. The size stated is approximate due the firing process but would only vary by a few mm.
I am unable to add photographs of all possible colour options please contact me if the colours you're wanting aren't shown.
Any questions or if you want to discussion your order please contact me.
Thank you John
