I dance through life very differently after the sudden loss of my oldest son Nigel in August of 2014. In search of light in the vortex of my grief I found art to be the touchstone that brought me comfort. About a year ago I was researching the idea of becoming a death doula. After a 6 month period of pondering my reason for wanting to do this I found that my intent may be askew. It was last winter after commissioning a local artisan to custom make a concrete coffee table for our home a light went off. I was going to learn how to cast concrete and make jewellry with it. I set myself up a studio in the basement. Picked the brains of my art school friends that majored in sculpture and mold making. I then hooked up with a mentor and got down to it. On the anniversary of Nigel's passing this year The idea of creating a cremation & memorial line of jewelry was born. I would love the opportunity to create a cherished remembrance for you.
Wearing a cremation jewelry piece is a way to keep the memory of your loved one close to your heart and with you at all times. Cremation jewelry is designed to hold a token of ashes, a lock of hair, crushed petals or nothing at all. There pieces can simply be a meaningful remembrance of a loved one. Part Crow Studio offers a large selection of pendants, ornaments and medallions from traditional to contemporary styles. This work stands on it's own in a sea of handmade jewelry designers.
Custom pieces ( anything I cast ) can be made into a cremation piece. As well as work with beading or chain ( Prices Vary ).
