Psyche Cremation Jewelry Giveaway

I have an absolutely wonderful giveaway that I am so happy to be able to provide thanks to the generosity of Mark Hamilton of Psyche Cremation Jewelry.


psyche 

Mark is a professional lampwork glass artist. He has created many beautiful pieces of hand blown glass jewelry over the past 14+ years, but cremation jewelry is the most rewarding glass work he has done. Everything he creates is done by his hands and it is so different than anything I've ever seen before. Mark takes the ashes of your loved one and transforms it into the focal design of the pendant. Essentially, your loved one becomes part of the art!

When you send Mark the ashes of your loved one, he treats them with great care and respect. He even requests a photo of your loved one and anything you want to tell him about them so that he may better create a custom pendant to capture who they are. I think this is something that is very important to know that the ashes of someone you love so much is being tenderly cared for. It also means a lot to know that someone is taking the time to get to really know the person who is missing from your life.

"I carefully encase the cremains in molten glass and uses them to form different designs inside the pendant. The clear glass shows the ashes off beautifully and allows the light to play off the hundreds of tiny gas bubbles the ashes create as they are absorbed into the glass. The size and patterns of the bubbles can’t be controlled but happen organically as the glass and ashes mix and fuse together in different ways. For this reason, no two pieces of cremation jewelry will ever be alike."  ~ Mark Hamilton

Your pendant will be as unique as the person it was created for.

"The Greek word for the soul is Psyche. In ancient Greece, the soul was personified as a butterfly and the word Psyche can be literally interpreted as “spirit, breath, life or animating force”. The Psyche is the element within a living being that gives them life and personality and continues “to breathe” even after leaving the body.
I chose this name and butterfly image because when you and I work together to create a piece of cremation jewelry, we’re really giving the memory of your loved one’s Psyche a physical manifestation in the world. We’re creating a beautiful piece of art with their physical cremains that enhances their continuing felt presence in your life."  ~Mark Hamilton
