In a process that takes an entire day and night, great care is taken to ramp up the temperature very slowly, fuse at just the right point, and anneal (cool) very slowly. All that time in the kiln minimizes large bubbles in the glass and ensures a very strong piece.
(Some small bubbles may be present in your finished piece – possibly the result of the minerals in the ashes reacting with the glass. If yours includes a bubble or two, please consider them a part of the beauty of your individual pendant, your pet’s ashes, and the colors you chose.)
If you purchase this pendant, I will mail you a COLLECTION KIT so that you can send me a small portion of your furry friend’s ashes. I will then make you a pendant similar to this one. Your pendant will come ready to wear on a shiny 18-inch sterling silver chain.
When you receive your collection kit, you will have a few choices to make. This piece can be made with more of a rustic look, like the red pendant, or with clean lines, like the green one. You also get to choose your preferred glass colors from a list you will find in your kit. I have a few patterned glass options that will add more visual texture. Let me know when you place your order if you’d like to see the patterns I currently have and I’ll email you a photo.
As a fellow animal lover who has lost two beloved dogs, my heart goes out to you as you grieve the loss of your furry family member. I hope your pendant will bring you comfort and peace as you remember your dear best friend.
PENDANT SIZE: The glass measures approximately 1 1/2 inches tall (not including the bail) by 3/4 of an inch wide.

Although this glass pendant is totally waterproof, do not submerge the piece in water or the glue holding the bail on may be compromised.
