Glass Hearts: Stardust
Glass hearts. A small amount of your beloved pet’s ashes can be immortalised forever into a comforting glass heart so that you can keep a little of your lovely pet in your home. The ashes into glass hearts are completely discreet but you can have them engraved completely free of charge.
The Stardust Glass Heart comes in a range of colours and can be held in the palm or even slipped into a pocket or a handbag. The heart is designed so that you can see the ashes, the lighter colours expose them more than the darker ones. If you would prefer not to see the ashes the Stardust range of hearts have a golden layer which sparkles and conceals the ashes.
All the pet ashes within glass ornaments are handmade here in Dartmoor, Devon by experienced and skilled glassmakers. The procedure is extremely rigorous and each item comes with a certificate of authenticity so that you know that only the ashes you have provided are in your memorial glass.
Colour choice: they are available in White, Black, Blue, Amber, Pink, Aqua, Amethyst and Green. If you would prefer another colour select the bespoke option and we will contact you to discuss other colour options.
Dimensions: appox 5cm long although as each one is individually hand made size may vary slightly. They sit very comfortably in your hand.
When I had to put my parrot down on Christmas Eve, after a tragic accident, I was faced with the difficulty of working out what to do with her ashes. I didn’t want to scatter them because I regularly move house, but I also didn’t want to just store them. Then I came across your website. I found the perfect memorial to my dear bird, a glass heart which reflects the bright green of her feathers and which I can hold in my hand. Even as I so often held her in my hand.Thank you for the prompt attention all the way through the process, and the care you gave to the ashes of my beloved friend. Chrys T
Keeping the ashes
Many people keep their pets ashes at home, some because they are not sure what to do with them, some because they are not yet ready to do something with them and some simply want to keep them close by, in the house. Sometimes, very well meaning, friends will give advice such as ‘it’s time to move on’ or ‘you’ll feel better if you scatter/bury them’. But only you will know how you feel about the loss of your pet and only you will know when and if the time is right to do something else with the ashes.
Splitting the ashes
As long as there are no religious reasons it is worthwhile thinking about keeping some of your pets ashes, you can scatter or bury most of the ashes on a favourite walk perhaps, or in the garden but keep a small amount back to memorialise when you are ready. This will give you more time to decide what you want to do as your feelings may change over time.
