I would like to start by saying that if you are here, I am deeply sorry for your loss. I strive to create the easiest possible ordering process, and highest quality items to help you through this time. I put together a very organized collection kit that I send with every order so you can have the peace of mind knowing your ashes are handled with the utmost care. Your initial tracking number that you receive (usually same or next day after your purchase) will be your collection kit on the way to you. These items do not require a large amount of ash. We only ask that you send one teaspoon per 5 items. Each order comes in a lovely shipping box, as well as a gift box for each item.
📌If you are in need of items containing human ashes, please visit my website (SugarberryMemorials.com) as Etsy -strictly- prohibits the sale of these items.
This piece contains ACTUAL ashes. This requires shipping your ashes to my studio. Your collection kit will include a prepaid envelope (for US buyers) as well as a permission slip that needs to be filled out with your final color choice and signed. Please fill the tube in your kit with 1 teaspoon of ashes and send it back at your earliest convenience. Your shipping time for your finished piece will start when I receive your ashes. My turn around time is 2 months from this date. You can check receipt of your ashes as well as tracking for your final shipment using our master spreadsheet located at www.sugarberry.club
These pieces are considered waterproof, but we do not recommend wearing them in chlorine pools, or exposing them to chemicals (perfumes, cleaners, etc.)
We pride ourselves on having the most color options currently available in the cremation jewelry industry. Please visit this link to view customer submitted photos, and past work:

Here is a brief explanation of each of the types of additives we offer:
Glitters and other inclusions:
We have many choices of glitters, shattered glass, opal flakes, gold, silver, and copper leaf, genuine meteorite shavings, lunar moon dust, and more. You can even send in your own inclusions if you already have something you like. Think unity sand, soil from a grave site or your home country, feathers, dry petals, etc. We cannot currently fulfill orders using fur or hair.
Natural Ash - No tint, enamel is clear and ashes are visible. Ashes vary in color from white, beige, brown, black, or grey. They tend to look slightly darker once the enamel is applied. (As if you had gotten them wet.) The finish for these is completely dependent on the color of the ashes you send and are completely one of a kind. We tend to sift out the smaller particles for our natural ash rings and do not use large pieces of bone.
These resemble granite or faux ash when they are finished. Great for if you aren't 100% satisfied with the natural color of the ashes and would like to enhance them while still maintaining the general appearance of natural ash. For use in pieces 6mm or larger.
UV Reactive/Glow in the Dark Colors:
We have twelve colors to choose from if you would like your piece to glow in the dark. We also offer a UV light keychain as an add on if you would like to be able to light your piece anytime.
UV Reactive/Solar Color Colors:
These are color changing glitters! They change in sunlight or with the UV light keychain.
Jelly Opal Colors:
These resemble an opal, with small and large holographic glitter pieces, but come in a much larger variety of colors. We currently have ten different jelly opal colors.
We have 12 colors of lab created crushed opal, and they are available in fine, or medium texture. We can only use the the fine particles for pieces under 6mm.
These bright, fun colors create the most wonderful patterns and can also be made with visible ash on top. Pieces under 6mm are limited to one color choice. Please contact me if you have any questions about how many colors can be used for your piece.
We carry fifty different colors of pearl shimmers, and they can also be custom mixed to create something entirely different. Pieces 6mm and larger can have two to three swirled together for a marble effect.
Liquid Color Tints:
The resin remains transparent, so the ashes are visible, just with a color tint (unless choosing black). For pieces 6mm or larger.
•Our silver pieces are sterling silver, unless they are Argentium silver (93.5% silver), and are labeled as such. Sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. Consider choosing another metal if you have a sensitivity to copper.
•Our gold pieces are SOLID gold. We only carry a small amount of gold toned items (gold stainless or gold filled sterling, and they are properly labeled as such.) Please ask if you would like 10k or 18k as opposed to 14k, we can usually accommodate that request for most styles.
•Our platinum pieces are solid platinum. Amazing heirloom pieces that can be passed down for generations.
•Our stainless pieces are non tarnish stainless steel. Great for people with any kind of allergies, they are hypoallergenic.
If you would like, we can scatter any remaining ash in the ocean of San Diego where we live. :) We take a trip about once a month and scatter them at this location: http://bit.ly/2FO8wuP
Please let us know your preference on your permission slip that will be in your ash collection kit.
This process is done completely by me in my studio in Spring Valley, California.
*color may vary slightly per monitor. If you have any questions or need me to text you photos/videos of a color in different lighting before you decide, please let me know. Please make sure you are 100% sure of your color before your piece is made, as there are no refunds due to color choice.
We look forward to serving you!
