Natural Pendants To Organically Remember Your Loved Ones

Cremation jewelry is one of the most comforting innovations to hit the memorial industry in recent years. Although the modern concept, which is a hollow pendant where cremations may be placed, is relatively new, many cultures have had the tradition of creating a 'wearable memorial' that can be taken along wherever the mourner goes. In ancient times, it was thought that it was bad luck to carry a belonging of a lost loved one, so a piece of hair, or earth from the gravesite would be placed in a small pouch and carried as a symbol of respect and mourning. During the Victorian Era, it became very popular to have a small portion of a lost loved one' s hair created into a piece of jewelry. The difference between these particular pieces of 'hair jewelry', and the jewelry of today is that instead of placed inside of a discreet capsule, the hair was showcased. Many of the pieces featured elegant, and intricate weaving of the hair, which was then accented with a metal bail or closure, or even shaped into earrings or broaches. While the custom of wearing a remembrance of a loved one disappeared around the beginning of the 20th century, it has become very popular again in recent years.

What is wood cremation jewelry?

Wood cremation jewelry is a new spin on these elegant 'ash holder' pendants. These pieces are made from a variety of different native and exotic woods, and the process begins by coring out a small vessel, and then shaping or accenting the exterior with a small decoration. One of the most attractive features of this material when applied to this use is that the wood features different patterns of graining, which will vary from piece to piece. That means that no two pendants will ever appear identical to one another, which makes for an intimate and unique tribute. The pendant is then attached to a removable bail, through which the remembrance would be placed. These elegant and affordable pendants are quite popular with a younger crowd. While this jewelry is appropriate for anyone, the rustic nature of the wood makes them especially appealing to younger gentlemen who are having trouble coping with a loss. These pendants provide a discreet remembrance that can be worn, and reached out to, whenever feelings of grief or sadness surface.

How are wood cremation jewelry pendants made?

Wood pendants are created using a process that begins by coring out a small piece of wood and then shaping or accenting the exterior with a small decoration. Each cremation pendant has a different pattern of graining which will vary from piece to piece. This means that every pendant is truly unique. The pendant is then attached to a removable bail that unscrews from the top of the pendant allowing you to place the remembrance of your loved one inside.

How do I take care of a wood pendant?

The best thing you can do to keep your pendant safe is to keep it away from water. When cleaning your wood pendant, use a non-abrasive microfiber cloth to wipe it's surface to remove dust. Like most jewelry, you can also store your wood jewelry in an airtight bag to avoid moisture and dust. Also, you can use some natural beeswax once a month on most wood pendants to keep them shiny and new.

"This was a sudden shocking death of my brother...I live in Oregon, he was in Ariz. When his son picked up his ashes he saw similar small urns, which neither of us were familiar with. He asked if I wanted one, as he was getting one and was spreading the rest of the ashes at sentimental sites throughout the country. I found your site on line, had never had to deal with "ashes" before and frankly found the idea of a large urn on a mantle unsettling. Keepsake urns were the answer. As my nephew said "once I spread the ashes there will be nothing of my Dad left". That convinced me I too needed a keepsake urn, found your website, and actually ended up paying $27 for the same urn my nephew bought at the mortuary for well over $100. I had the urn shipped to his address in Las Vegas, he transferred some ashes in my new urn and shipped it on to me. I only received it yesterday and was astonished at just how beautiful, simply yet classic the urn is. Far from being "creepy", I immediately cherish this keepsake of my last close family member. Thank you so much for your elegant product, the quick and excellent service and having the ability to buy it on line from Oregon then send it to Vegas then finally have it arrive at my home in Oregon helped tremendously in this agonizing situation. I will treasure this beautiful urn always, and thank you again for everything. Deborah Kimberlin"
