We understand that you may be going through an extremely difficult time and we hope we can help you through the process by making some decisions easier for you. There is a magnitude of options when it comes to our loved one's ashes. We can have them sent to space, we can use their ashes to make glass art, the possibilities seem endless these days. To help you on your journey, in this article we will be discussing some heartfelt ideas of what to do with your mother's ashes.
The Right Cremation Urn for you
Finding the right cremation urn can be overwhelming given the vast array of urns for ashes there are available. There are metal urns, wooden urns, ceramic urns, biodegradable urns, the list goes on.
There are so many skilled artisans all over the world coming up with new creative designs for urns every day. The idea of keeping a loved one's ashes in your home doesn't have to be in a traditional rounded vase with a tapered base and neck anymore.
For example, here we have our Pinnacle Ceramic Cremation Urn which was created with the idea of blending symbolism and modern art together. The tip of the urn can be removed to reveal a space for a tealight candle.
When the candle isn't lit, you can place the lid back upon the urn to once again complete its form seamlessly. The unique and modern design of this urn makes this an eye-catching piece that could make a delightful addition to your home.
Furthermore, our Aspire Cremation Urn for Ashes is a wooden urn crafted from Orchard trees which has been carved into a irregular cylinder shape, topped with a pointed lid. The wood has been left natural with the unique markings and patterns of the specific tree that this urn was carved from.
These wooden urns have a unique innovative design which brings a natural look to your home. You may wish to choose a wood style that most matches your home interior or perhaps something completely different to make this cremation urn stand out from the crowd.
Some urns are suitable for outdoor use, so you may want to keep them outdoors or you may want to create a memorial garden for the urn to be placed in. These are typically ceramic and metal urns.
Some children don't fancy keeping their mother's ashes inside the home so they might opt for a burial. There are two different kinds of urn burials: land burial and water burial.
A land burial is where a biodegradable urn is used to store a loved one's ashes and then this urn is buried within the ground, usually at least a 3 foot deep hole. Over time, the natural materials of the urn will slowly biodegrade to release the ashes and allow them to become integrated into the environment.
You may also wish to bury your mother's ashes and plant a tree on top to grow from her. Alternatively, you may want to create a memorial garden around where she is buried if you decide on your own garden.
A water burial is when the urn is placed within a body of water, such as the sea or a lake, and within a matter of minutes the urn will slowly start to disintegrate and release your loved one's ashes into the water to re-join the circle of life.
For example, our Journey Biodegradable Water Urn for Ashes is suitable for water burial as it is made using biodegradable paper which will slowly dissipate within the water. A water soluble bag is also included to safely transfer your ashes into the urn.
Along with cremation urns for ashes, memorial jewellery has come along way in recent years with new possibilities and designs emerging all the time.
Memorial jewellery allows you to keep your mother close to you and take her on journeys she didn't get the chance to go on herself. This may be in the form of a necklace, ring or bracelet. We have a range of designs of jewellery available including self-fill ashes jewellery.
For example, we have our Braided Stainless Steel Ashes Bracelet which is simplistic and modern in design making it suitable for all genders and styles.
The bracelet is made from high quality 316 stainless steel which is durable and long lasting. The bracelet has an 11mm ash chamber and a magnetic enclosure design to keep the container secure.
