This is a bright and beautiful Poppy suncatcher keepsake memorial infused with your loved ones ashes. It measures approximately 9cm square and comes ready to hang with red ribbon.
The Poppy suncatcher is handmade using specialist art glass and is fired in the kiln at least twice. The cremation ashes are mixed carefully with the dark frit in the centre of the Poppy, along with clear glass and is then fused. It’s a unique, durable, special memorial.
The ashes are finely sprinkled within the dark glass centre so are not as noticable as on the other ashes products I make. Cremation ashes often have a natural slight metallic sparkle once fired in the kiln.
Suitable for indoor or outside use, fused glass doesn’t fade in the sun and is weatherproof (I do advise to protect it from the wind).
This looks delicate but it is pretty tough at 6mm thick, but as with all glass, it’s best to keep it out of the reach of children and handle it with love and care.
- After you have placed your order, I will send you a kit with full instructions, to collect the ashes. I only need around half a teaspoon worth, any unused ashes will be returned along with your sunflower.
- Once I’ve received the ashes back, it will take up to 2 weeks to make your suncatcher.
It’s an honour to make these available and you can be assured I take great care of the ashes of your loved one while in my possession. I have a special area in my workshop set aside.
The postage price includes me sending the ashes kit to you and the final item being sent on completion.
2 x Postage is included in the postage price – Sending the ashes kit to you via 1st class and sending the finished item to you via your chosen postage method. I highly recommend sending the ashes to me via Signed For post at least, to ensure they get to me.
Unfortunately there is no option for prepaid postage when sending signed for. I’ve researched it in the past and spoken to Royal Mail to find a solution but as of now, it isn’t something they offer.
Many people choose to send the ashes back via special delivery to ensure they get to me, or delay sending them back so it isn’t a one size fits all procedure, unfortunately.
