A unique, special ashes keepsake that isn’t made by anyone else.

The feather measures approx 12cm from top to bottom, not including the ribbon. It’s approx 3.5cm at the widest point and approx 1cm thick.

Glass Ashes Keepsake Feather Suncatcher

Your loved ones cremation ashes are lovingly made into this beautiful feather suncatcher. It’s a unique, special ashes keepsake that isn’t made by anyone else.

Each feather is made in three colours of your choice, or rainbow. It comes ready to hang with colour co-ordinating ribbon.

The feather measures approx 12cm from top to bottom, not including the ribbon. It’s approx 3.5cm at the widest point and approx 1cm thick.

There are two sides to each feather – a glossy, smooth side and a more matte side with definition.

The ashes are finely sprinkled within the glass feather. Cremation ashes have a natural slight metallic sparkle once fired in the kiln.

Ashes in glass will not yellow or degrade over time, unlike resin. Glass is much more durable for your special keepsake.

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).

The ashes keepsake suncatcher looks beautiful hanging anywhere, espcially when the sun shines!

The Process:

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 order.  Once I’ve received the ashes, 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.

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. There is an easy option to buy postage online and arrange a collection at your convenience at https://send.royalmail.com/

There may be a variation in each item, due to the nature of the glass and the fact that it’s hand made. I use the best glass available from System 96. Each sheet of glass is hand cut by me. All items are designed and crafted by me in my home studio. The whole piece is fused and properly annealed in my kiln for over 12 hours, aiding strength and durability.

Items are made to order and are posted Royal Mail. Details of my processing times are on each listing.

Care of Your Glass

I wrote a blog post on how not to hang your glass – please don’t use window suckers!

General Care Instructions:

  • Glass is breakable so please handle with care.
  • Gentle handwash only – no harsh chemicals or abrasives – wipe clean with a soft, damp cloth.
  • If your glass is to be placed outside, please protect it from wind and storms.


  • Jewellery Care:

  • Never immerse in water.
  • Ensure you remove your jewellery before bathing/showering, swimming and cleaning.
  • Sterling Silver and Plated Silver will always tarnish over time, especially when not worn for a time. Use a good qualty soft silver polishing cloth to remove any tarnish and bring back the shine.
