If you want a beautiful keepsake of your loved one than I cannot even imagine considering someone else to transform their energy into a work of art. Not only is Joele extremely conscientious of you and your loved one but beyond compassionate and caring in all of the process. I am overwhelmed at how professional n thoughtful she was in handling this for me n helping me heal in the process. She is expedient n treats every single customer as if they are a friend. I will definitely be back n will spread the word to everyone at how amazing this art is. ~Jennifer
The best! Excellent communication. If you want a special piece to carry your loved one or pet, stop here. The most in depth, sincere, thoughtful process I have ever heard of. Pride and respect is given at all times and the outcome is an amazing one of a kind special ring that expresses your love. Thank you so much for speaking with me about my purchase and your process. Thanks for honestly caring about what you do and understanding what I am going through as well. I will wear it forever for my baby girl! ~Lisa
Joele created treasures which will provide a lifetime of enjoyment as we remember our loved one. She designed a scene which captured our description. I especially appreciated the sincere interest and respect she gave to the entire project. She sent daily updates and sought to provide a perfect remembrance for all my items. I rarely take the time to go in and rate items and I have never been more pleased with the craftsmanship of the items. Well worth the investment!! ~Linda
This is absolutely perfect. Thank you so much. When my fiancee passed away I didn't know if I would make it through. You gave me a way to carry him with me all the time. My necklace is beautiful and I love it. He would have loved it. That makes it even more special. You have an amazing talent and it's wonderful that you use it to bring some light into the dark times of others people's lives. ~Tiffany
Joele's art is breathtaking. She immediately opened her arms and embraced our ideas.
She mindfully sketched our vision for our memorial piece. She then included us in each part of the project, giving us updates throughout the process.
I can't recommend Joele enough. She is truly talented and we are blessed that she will forever be connected to our family. ~Sarah
I am so overjoyed by how completely perfect my dedication piece turned out! Joele is an amazing and conscientious artist and she worked so closely with me to bring my vision to life! The process was a beautiful experience and I am so happy!~Julie
We had rings made to commemorate our grandfather, and Joele was amazing to work with. She handled our grandfather with respect, was extremely speedy, and was an all around joy to work with. When the rings arrived, they were far more beautiful than the pictures indicated. Thank you for creating something to wonderful to help us keep the memory of our grandfather alive!~Cynthia

Wonderful woman and artist amd she created one off pieces specific to that person. I now have a beautiful item to honour my grandmother and her esence is with me every day in such a beautiful way!~Ashley
Losing a loved one is difficult on every level but Joele made this particular choice easy and comforting. Not only did she create beautiful pieces, I knew that while she created them, she was treating my son like family and I trusted her completely with the entire process. If you are looking for a professional, compassionate artist to trust with your loved ones ashes and to help you through this process, you have found her. Thank you Joele, I will always have my son near me with your beautiful pieces and the comforting memory of the love and compassion you shared with me.~Regan
I cannot say enough about the compassion and respect that Joele showed to our family and my son's ashes throughout the entire process, from the initial placing of my order until I received my rings and pendant. Joele sent emails and pictures during each step of the creation, making sure that I and the family members that I was buying for were involved, asking for our input, understanding and guiding when we were indecisive. She was always quick to respond and above and beyond accommodating when I decided to add to my initial order. Joele took great care and time ensuring that I was happy with each detail of every piece ordered. Personally, deciding to memorialize my son forever with this art form has been healing and comforting and finding Joele to help with this process was a blessing.
Joele treated our mother's cremains with such care, it touched us deeply. She involved us every step of the way with pictures and messages. Great communication, prompt shipping. The finished product was so beautiful, worth every penny. Thank you

:::::::::::::::::::You Must Plan on KEEPING SOME ASHES:::::::::::::: *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 break
