"Hi Lynn,

I am speechless; I cannot express with words how much I love the pendant. I know you put so much love into it I can feel Keitas energy around my neck like a hug. The gems and the plate are so perfect together.  I see and feel Keita in the design, the weight and the texture.

 I appreciate your artistry so much. even though this is a very difficult time somehow you have eased my pain. 

With deepest gratitude,

Megan"

Some of our custom designed handmade cremation jewelry designs
Here are pictures and descriptions of some of our recent custom designed cremation ashes jewelry pieces.  These are pictures of the first of each type.  Some clients choose a design that we have used before, some have chosen a basic design but requested changes to include features which have personal meaning.  All pictures of pendants are provided to give you ideas to choose from. Remember, should you choose one of those pictured below, your piece will not be exactly like the one you chose because each cremation piece is handmade to order in our Cocoa Florida studio and no two are exactly alike.

Why we call our stones "StarSeed Gems"

As we developed our keepsake jewelry, we devised a method of permanently fusing the cremation ashes of loved ones within art glass, creating beautiful "stones". Under normal light conditions when you see the stones in our handmade jewelry the colors are produced by the colors of the glass from which they are made. Typically, the cremation ashes are not visible except in darkness or under ultraviolet light. This is because we treat the cremation ashes with a photolumenescent substance so that they absorb light energy. Later, in darkness, the cremation ashes release this energy and cast gentle light resembling a beautiful night sky.

You can see this in these four pictures. The same two pieces of keepsake jewelry are shown. For each piece a picture was taken under normal light. Here the visable colors are from the glass and you can't see the cremation ashes. In the other picture, which was taken under ultraviolet light, you can see the glow from the treated cremation ashes.

StarSeed Gems Unique Designs We believe that when someone invests in a piece of custom designed keepsake jewelry that piece must have special appeal to that person. Therefore, we do not have a stock of already made pendants from which the client can choose.  Every keepsake pendant that we sell is handmade in our Cocoa, Florida studio to meet the desires of the client who ordered it.
 
Because of this we can offer you four options:
    You can choose a design that we have previously made.  (Note since each piece is hand crafted no two will be exactly alike).     
    You can choose to have one of these designs modified to meet your wishes.      
    We can design a pendant for you.  Let us know what you have in mind and we will work with you to create the design that pleases you.        
    If you have a plan of your own send us your sketch and we will produce the pendant.

How Your Handmade Jewelry can be Finished

Each piece of keepsake jewelry is highly polished, and at your request the finish can be lightly antiqued or darkened to a gun-metal finish. The cremation jewelry comes with your choice of satin or leather neck cord, with .925 silver clasps. Bails on our cremation ashes jewelry are created large enough to accommodate a variety of other chains, even Omegas. (see the pairs of photos below for an example of gun-metal patina).

In the pictures below you can see the same keepsake pendants before and after patina was added. In each pair the picture on the left is the polished pendant and on the right you can see the effects of the added patina.
