Welcome to our pet memorial
jewelry web site!
We create pet memorial
jewelry by permanently fusing beloved pets' ashes within art glass. The resulting "stones" are then attached
to a hand-made, artist-designed pendant made of .999 pure silver.

You select the type
of stone and the design of the silver setting on which the stone is placed. Your piece of pet memorial jewelry
will reflect your preference and taste.
Each piece of pet memorial jewelry consists of two separate components.
They are the stone and the silver setting on which the stone will be placed.
It is in the stone that the
pet's ashes are sealed. Each stone is made from three layers of art glass. When assembling the pieces of glass
to produce the stone we coat the ashes with a luminescent material and place them between the layers. They are then
fired in a high temperature kiln. When removed from the kiln the layers of glass have melted together producing a beautiful
You can choose from a variety of colors of this glass to determine the color of the stone in your pet memorial jewelry.

the ashes to absorb light energy and later, in darkness, the ashes give off this light in the form of a soft and soothing
The stones are
designed to look like a beautiful night sky, when in darkness. For this reason, we have named our pet memorial jewelry
The second component of our pet memorial jewelry is the silver setting. Each setting is
hand crafted using silver art clay which can be molded into virtually any shape with any texture desired. When this
clay has dried it is placed in the high temperature kiln and fired at 1400 degrees. This heat burns off the binders
in the clay leaving .999 pure silver.
Most of the settings for our pet memorial jewelry have reflected something
from nature such as leaves, shells, butterflies, starfish, etc. However, many designs have been created to meet the
desires of the client who placed the order. (To see some of these, browse through our Design Ideas section (button on
