Ash Collection Information InFusion Glass

How much ashes do I need?

Just a pinch.

1 small Nickle size amount of the powered ashes can make 5 rings and pendants. 1small teaspoon can make large orders and larger items. I encourage you to send as little as possible. If you ordered 2 items don't send twice as much.

How to send the ashes

After you place your order I will ship your collection kit. Monday or on Friday Only. 

**1 scoop is all I need for Larger Items or Large Art Works. Multiple Large Art Works .

Collection Kits will come with an addressed envelope. two small zip lock bag, a safe travels velvet bag to place your baggies, a wooden scoop to collect the ashes with, and instructions

Collection Kits can ONLY be mailed through the United States Postal Service.

**Your crematory can pre package your ashes for your artwork or jewelry. just tell them you want 1 tablespoon set aside for cremation art at a later date. you can also request them to ship the ashes to me.

 the extra is always returned to you.

***It is important that the ash be the finest grain - powder form. I understand that it can be hard to collect. Just do the best you can. Sometimes it is just to difficult to gather the ashes to send. The ash collection is the hardest part. If you feel like you just cant do it, maybe ask a friend to help. Sometimes we can get lost in the stages of grief. please know I understand this process and know it sometimes takes a person weeks to make it through this part. It will happen in it's own time. This is common and If you need someone to talk to please feel free to send me an email for emotional support anytime.

I like to light candles and place the photos in my Studio to respect your loved ones. 
*If You have a photo Please send a copy or original photo of your loved one to be hung in studio during the ash infusion. I understand not everyone can send a photo. If you do, you can print it in black and white or color on regular paper with your receipt. I send all of this back to you with the unused ash and your artwork. The photo of the candle lighting and a finished product photo I send to you via email.

Connection is important to me. if your honoring a pet please write to me about your pet if you like. I like to be respectful and feel connected to the spirit being honored. This is all about your healing. You can also just send the ashes. I want it to be a comforting experience. I understand sometimes there are no words or photos during this instance I will still photograph a candle lighting of your ashes and send the updates.

*If you plan to scatter your loved one’s ashes, please reserve one teaspoon of ashes aside in a safe place for creating your memorial art besides what you send me.

Some reasons to keep some ashes just in case:
- Lost in the mail: the artist does not receive the ashes or you do not receive the art
- You want to order more art
- art drops and breaks
::::::::LOST OR STOLEN MAIL::::::::::::
if your package is lost or stolen I can not return artwork, photos and ashes to you. I do always get a tracking # but cannot be responsible if it is lost or stolen in the mail. you will get the insured amount from the claim from post office. This is also why you should be keeping some ashes.
