My beloved "Rudy"
Rudy

This is Rudy...my sweet little "bubala" who left this world in 2001.  While here, she offered me unconditional love...every day of her life.  I still miss her terribly.  My first cremation beads were made with what was left of her cremains.  Those beads still offer me some comfort.  I think about her almost every time I talk about my beads, so I thought I would share her with you.



Interview conducted by NH Chronicle.on October 4, 2011




 
Cremation beads are glass beads that are infused with a small amount of cremation ash.

The result is a beautiful piece of wearable art that will be as unique as your loved one.
I believe that every bead is special, meaningful, and important. I approach the bead making process with care and respect.
It's not JUST a bead. My goal is to make the bead and the process as personal as possible, and that requires some communication with you, if possible. 
To accomplish that, I ask that you tell me a little bit about your loved one, and to provide a photo, if possible.
All remaining cremation ash & photos are returned to you.
(contact me directly or see my order form for more information)

  You may order in person or by mail.   Either way, my service includes a personal consultation. 
If ordering by mail, please print and complete the order form and mail it to me along with your loved one's cremation ash and payment.

IN PERSON CONSULTATIONS BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.   Please call or email to schedule.
Appointments available on weekdays and some weekends.

I am able to accept credit cards but will have to add a 4% surcharge to your order.
