I promised you one more "special" post
and I want to show you my
Greta Memorial Bead
Greta and I shared a very strong bond
After losing her, I was desperate for some way
to feel like she was still with me
and I remembered reading about
Sisu Beads Memorial Jewelry
several months ago at our friends
Sisu Beads uses a very tiny amount of your loved ones ashes
and creates a beautiful piece of jewelry.
from their web site
Sisu Beads memorial jewelry as a tangible way to stay connected. Every Sisu Bead is hand sculpted with love. The cremation ashes are hand mixed with the glaze and fired into the bead
I showed this to my husband and he agreed
I needed a Greta Memorial bead
the ordering was easy - I picked out the style of bead
and the color I wanted right there on the website.
Within a few days a package arrived with a gift box inside
|Don't know why blogger insists to put these sideways|
Inside was a collection kit and instructions.
The kit contained a small plastic envelope
and a small spoon.
Only a very small amount of ash was needed
(about the size of a watermelon seed)
any unused ash would be returned.
Everything was sealed and put in the prepaid priority mail envelope that was provided
They also encourage sending along a picture and to tell them something about your loved one.
Off in the mail it went
and two days later we received a personal email
letting us know that our special package had arrived and they would take the very best care of our Greta
Four weeks later another gift package arrived
Along with a hand written note card
And inside the package was my very special
Greta Memorial Bead
pink of course
And not only that
but also a box of note cards
with Greta's picture on them
This was not the picture I had sent to them by the way
They had taken the time to visit our blog
and choose a picture from there!
I was so impressed with the personal and caring service
If you are ever thinking about something like this
I would highly recommend contacting
Gina & Julie
at Sisu Beads
It was while I was waiting for my Sisu Bead to arrive
that a very dear friend
sent us the beautiful little Greta Star
Now I have two precious ways
to keep my girl close to my heart
