Pet Memorial Necklaces

 

Crumpet Our special animal friends are like members of our family.  When they pass on, it can be a very difficult experience, and I wanted to create a line of jewelry that commemorates the love and bond between us and our pets.  These memorial necklaces are portraits of your little one and feature compartments on the back to store fur and ashes, so you can carry your special companion with you like a comforting talisman.


Each necklace is completely custom made, using pictures of your pet as references (and that’s my little guy, Crumpet, over on the right playing in the sun!).  I use 18k gold and sterling silver, as well as precious materials like Mokume Gane that I hand-made (a Japanese metalsmithing technique that resembles fur) to recreate your pet’s individual features.  I can create a full body piece or a head only.  Every piece has a small box on the back to seal in fur and ashes and can be engraved with your pet’s name.
