These beautiful handmade beads are an inspiring way to remember a loved one that has passed through your life. The beads are created using a small amount of your pet's cremains which are infused into the molten glass of the bead. Then the glass is wound and shaped by hand to create a bead as unique as your loved one. Whenever you wear your memory bead, you will have your friend close to your heart.
Once you place an order, the bead artist will send you a prepaid shipping package with easy to follow shipping procedures included. A cremains container and disposable spoon will be sent to you. Use the spoon to scoop about 1/2 teaspoon of your cremains into the provided container. Then, take your package and the enclosed USPS Registered Mail form to a convenient US Post Office near you. A strictly followed tracking record will ensure that your cremains are delivered safely from your hands to ours.
Once your bead is complete, it will be shipped to you again by USPS Registered Mail. An email from USPS will inform you when to expect your package so that you will be available to sign for it. All unused cremains will be returned to you with your bead. During checkout, please choose the flat rate option of $20 to pre-pay for all Registered Mail shipments.
Your necklace can be customized further. We offer upgrades in the size of your bead below as well as additional side beads. The beads below are 1/2" - 1" in size, depending on the bead you order and can be upgraded roughly 1/4" in size. If you would like to use your own chain with your bead, we recommend choosing one of our two vertical beads below. These come with a loop that your own chain should easily fit through. The horizontal beads can have a loop added upon request. Anything can be done to make your necklace something you can cherish. If you would like further options, just call us toll free at 877-738-7322.
