How Do You Make Memorial Jewellery With Ashes?

Deciding what to do with a loved one's ashes can be challenging after cremation. You understand they should be remembered in a manner that reflects their values and character. You might keep their ashes in an urn at home or disperse them in the water or some other outdoor spot they cherished. These are time-honoured customs, but they have a final air about them. It's hard to let go, and you want to ensure their legacy lives on. Many individuals consider making memorial jewellery for ashes from their loved one's ashes.

What is cremation jewellery?

From cremation diamonds to urn necklaces and bracelets, there is a wide variety of jewellery options for memorialising a loved one through cremation. How much time and money are required to transform ashes into jewellery depends on your selected jewellery style.

Jewellery produced from cremated remains is a meaningful way to remember a loved one who has passed away, as it allows you to incorporate their ashes into a unique piece of jewellery. A piece of jewellery made from human ashes will enable you to remember and converse about your loved ones even after they are gone. It can even become a treasured family artefact, with memories and photos passed down through the years.

How to fashion jewellery out of ashes

Memorial Jewellery is a meaningful way to honour a deceased loved one. Everything you need to know, and more, regarding the procedures, is provided below.

Urn jewellery

The ashes of a loved one can be placed in a small, hollowed-out container that can be worn as jewellery. Necklaces are the most prevalent form, but charms and bracelet beads are also available. An urn pendant is a beautiful way to wear cremated remains close to your heart.

Urn jewellery is wider than holding ashes; many keep hair or heavy soil. Instructions on how to fill the jewellery with human ashes are included in the order. Typically, you'll find small screws and funnels to aid in filling the hole and instructions on how to seal the chamber snugly to prevent any leakage. Regarding Memorial Jewellery, urn pieces are the most reasonably priced option.

Cremation beads

Ashes are combined with molten glass to create cremation beads. Each bead can be personalised with a colour of your choosing, representing something special about your loved one (such as their birthstone or eye colour).

The cost of this alternative is more than that of urn jewellery but lower than that of diamonds or crystals. Because cremation beads are so adaptable, you may use them to fashion a one-of-a-kind necklace or bracelet from cremains.

Custom Jewellery

The procedure for creating custom jewellery is similar to that used to create cremation beads, except that the final product is shaped into a pendant rather than a bead. Many manufacturers of cremation jewellery also provide custom engraving and a larger palette of colour options. You can select either brand-new or recycled glass; although the former can be coloured to your liking, the latter will always be a transparent green.

Ashes are mixed with a liquid glass heated to over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit to manufacture cremation beads and other glass jewellery. Because of the extreme heat, the carbon in the ashes is typically burned out, turning the otherwise light ashes into a brilliant white.


Memorial Jewellery is a beautiful keepsake to honour the memories of a deceased loved one. It's a special opportunity to remember a loved one and meaningfully reflect on their life together.
