I work from my home studio based in Essex, using a kiln, blow torch and glass.
I use a small amount of human or pet ashes, draw them into glass rods and work then into a mixture of colours, swirling them to make interesting shapes.
Once I have made the bead, I place it in to a kiln to make it strong.
I like to get to know who I am doing the work for, I like to know the name of the person or pet. I love what I do and I enjoy hearing about all the people and pets I have had the honour of working with.
I need half a teaspoon of ashes sent to me in an air tight bag, I can send one if required.
Please send it to me signed for, and this will get to me.
I discuss colours with you personally, I can blend several to add interest to the bead.
Once complete I send pictures to show you my work and if you are happy- I then add a silver core in the middle.
Once complete I return everything to you, by special delivery. This includes unused Ashes, any ashes drawn into glass but unused and any additional beads I have made – should I need to try out the colours.
I have a Facebook page – the molten pixie, where I have completed the majority of my ashes work to date. You will see I have very good reviews.
I appreciate that I am dealing with something very special, I take great care to keep all orders separate. I work very hard to try and meet /exceed customer expectations.
I also feel very strongly about keeping my costs affordable for people.
I offer discounts if the order is for more than one bead.
