How my journey began,
My background is in nursing and midwifery and this is a career that I continue to love. My journey with memory jewellery initially began with breastmilk keepsakes and this is also something I continue to do with much passion!
During the time that I have been creating breastmilk jewellery, I have had many inquiries from people wanting keepsakes made from ashes and hair.
It turns out that humans benefit hugely from having something tangible to hold onto to help them through their grief. That might be a photo, a teddy bear or a piece of clothing… or a piece of cremation jewellery.
I have grown to love making this type of memorial jewellery and have learned and gained so much from the conversations that I have been lucky enough to have with people from all walks of life. People looking for a little something that will help them keep a loved one close.
It became apparent to me that this jewellery deserved a space all of its own and that is how the Forget Me Not Collection was born.
Losing a pet can be incredibly difficult to come to terms with. I’ve recently put my beloved puppy to sleep at almost 15 years young and it was heartbreaking. Pets are such an important part of our family. A memorial ring or pendant will act as a constant reminder of the presence of your loved ones.
it's Such an honour
When I am chosen by someone to create a precious piece of memorial jewellery, I consider it a huge honour. I understand that this jewellery will be treasured for a lifetime and so needs to be made of the highest quality materials and with much love and respect. I have spent a great deal of time sourcing all of my materials from reputable and highly esteemed artisans. I use jewellers grade resin to add your inclusion and effects.
The result is a piece that with good care, will last a lifetime and can be passed on to future generations. This will become a beautiful heirloom that in time I hope will make you smile & remember your treasured memories every time you look at it.
All of the jewellery in this collection is made with sterling silver or solid gold to create an elegant keepsake that will last a lifetime. The act of wearing cremation jewellery allows you a way in which you can take control. Every piece is specially made and my current turnaround time is eight to twelve weeks. This is an outside estimate and is always subject to change.
