Cremation Ashes round paperweight
Cremation Ashes set inside handmade/blown crystal round paperweight
I make these myself. I only make one order at a time, placing the ashes into a metal tray, then gathering the molten glass and first adding any colours you have chosen. When I have melted these to the surface of the glass, I reheat the glass then pick up a small amount of ashes, (about half a teaspoon full) for a paperweight, but need a bit more to make sure I have enough, returning any left over with your order. I then mix the ashes and colour together in my Glory hole at about 1180 degrees C into swirls and patterns. I then cool the first part down to about 650 degrees and gather molten 1120 degree glass over the top encasing the ashes inside. I then hand-shape and make this into your chosen piece, whether it be a paperweight, candle holder, heart paperweight, small Vortex vase or even a heart shaped sculpture.
I assure you, your chosen piece will be made with the upmost respect and passion as I have a serious love for glassmaking and making people happy, using the skills I have been lucky enough to learn and share.
