5 unique and personal things to do with cremation ashes

5 unique and personal things to do with cremation ashes

Many people are opting to cremate their loved ones instead of burying them in recent years, and with good reason. Cremation services are more affordable and faster than burial services, and most importantly, you get to keep your loved one’s ashes and do with them as you please. In this blog post, we will be sharing five unique things to do with cremated ashes.

Turn them into jewellery

If you would like to keep your loved ones close to you, make a piece of jewellery with their ashes. Memorial jewellery is making a comeback, and many companies have a wide range of rings, bracelets, pendants, cufflinks, and earrings to choose from. Since you only need a tiny amount of cremation ashes, interested family members and close friends can have one made too.

Get a cremation tattoo

Many people get a tattoo in memory of their loved ones, but you can make yours more personal and memorable by infusing a small amount of your loved one’s ashes with the tattoo ink. Cremation tattoos are not very popular, but you can get them done at Gods of Ink in Gloucester and a few other tattoo studios in the country.

Turn them into music

Another great way to turn cremation ashes into a personal souvenir is having them pressed into a playable vinyl record, and And Vinyly, is giving you a chance to do this. They press your loved one’s ashes into records and allow you to create personalised voice recordings or playlists. They can also customise the record cover to your specifications.

Turn them into a work of art

Commemorative cremation portraits are made by mixing your loved one’s ashes with painting materials. These works of art allow you to preserve your loved one’s memory in beautiful pieces of art that can be displayed at home.

Plant them

This is a great option for anyone who was an environmentalist or eco-warrior. There are several companies in the country that offer living urns, in which your loved one’s ashes are combined with nutrients and a tree seed and planted in a location of your choice.
