It will be very similar. However, due to the complexity and unreliable nature of dichroic glass, each Love Ashes pendant or framed memorial is a one-of-a-kind creation.
Your one-of-a-kind Love Ashes keepsake can be designed in one of two ways; either to be worn as a necklace or to be mounted in a framed memorial.
Each Pendant and Framed Memorial is designed, hand-cut, assembled, fired in a kiln and inspected by artist Silvia Engel to insure quality.
You will have several color combinations from which to choose, each hand-selected by Silvia Engel personally for their vibrancy.
The Classic Love Ashes pendants are accompanied by a 36” black hand-dyed silk cord. The Eternity Line comes with a white hand-dyed silk cord. The pendant can easily be slipped off the cord and worn with your favorite silver chain or omega.
The 8.25” x 6.75” framed memorial has an optional 11” black iron easel stand.
