Hanging elegantly on a black satin cord, this glass cremation ash pendant has a spiral of ashes in an inward vortex looking like a spiral galazy. The ashes are infused into clear glass with a purply-blue background. The ashes of your loved one are the feature of the pendant, they are part of the art. The front of the pendant is a convex shape, magnifying the ashes.
As well as showing off the ashes elegantly, the clear glass allows the light to play off the hundreds of tiny CO2 gas bubbles the ashes create as they are absorbed into the glass. No two pieces of cremation jewellery will ever be alike as the size and patterns of bubbles cannot be controlled. The color hues in the background and the pattern of the ashes may also vary with each piece of jewellery. The results are an organic fusion of the glass and ash mixing together in different ways.
Approximately 2.5cm tall and 1.9cm-2.5cm wide, this hypo-allergenic pendant is a beautiful way to keep the ashes of your loved one always close by you. Each touch or compliment of the pendant will bring back a wave of pleasant memories for you.
We have a professional glass artist with over 20 years experience who hand creates each pendant with utmost caring and respect.

What type of glass is used in the pendants?
We use “borosilicate glass” in our pendants, a specialized and versatile very strong variety of glass. It is so strong it is used for stove top cookware, nuclear waste containment and scientific glassware. It is highly durable, less sensitive to day-to-day mishaps, can last for generations, and has a longer lifespan.
Borosilicate glass has a natural color palette. Each color is an organic, living collection of hues that can be manipulated and shaded with careful torch work and kiln annealing. The colors that can be achieved using borosilicate glass are more dynamic and subtle than most soft glass colors. Also, due to the chemically compatible composition of borosilicate glass, various precious metals like silver and gold can be used to color the glass in some very unique and amazing ways.
What is the chemical composition of Borosilicate glass?
Molecularly speaking, borosilicate glass differs from regular “soft glass” in one simple way. Borosilicate glass substitutes particles of boron oxide for the soda and lime particles found in soft glass. The boron oxide “glues” the silicate particles together with aluminum oxide and sodium oxide. Because the boron oxide particles are small, the silicate is bonded together more tightly which results in a much stronger glass.
