When a loved one passes away, there are many details that must be worked out to ensure their memory is honored in a special way.

5 Creative Options for Cremation Ashes

1. Create a Piece of Jewelry

There are companies that can incorporate ashes into beautiful hand-blown glass jewelry pieces or sparkly diamonds. Whichever style you prefer, you can always keep your loved one near on a bracelet, necklace, ring or pendant.

2. Fill an Hourglass

Hourglasses are nostalgic keepsakes that add a vintage look to any décor. This is why they’re perfect for holding cremation remains. Though they won’t be accurate at keeping time, it’s an elegant way to pass ashes down from generation to generation.

3. Get a Tattoo
