California-based artist Merry Coor has created a line of handmade pendants called the ‘Memorial Ash Beads’, which are crafted from the cremated ashes of loved ones.
Coor creates these jewelry by melting glass to form the round bead, half a teaspoon of ashes are then added in a spiral design on the bead, and preserved in a clear layer of glass—she also does her best to learn about the deceased person by looking at their photos and materials provided by her clients.
The beads come in large, medium and small sizes, to be worn on an 18-inch sterling silver or gold filled chain.
