Ashes into Glass

Ashes into Glass Jewellery is a story. Your story may be of pride, of strength, of courage. It could be a story of family and warmth, of smiles and laughter. Maybe a story of romance, of hugs and kisses. An inner beauty, a kind heart, a warm smile. But it will always be a story of love, a story of devotion and a story of a bond that cannot be broken.

Your Ashes into Glass jewellery will remind you that your loved one is with you. In a fleeting thought or a fond memory, a favourite song on the radio or a conversation with a friend. By wearing it or just holding it in your hand, you will connect with your loved one and share these special moments together.

The Products


Ashes into Glass Jewellery is exquisitely handcrafted by James Watts, Bill Rhodes and their team at Barleylands Glassworks in Billericay, Essex.

The Details

Your loved one’s cremation ashes, coloured glass crystals and clear molten glass are expertly layered together. We use traditional techniques combined with our own unique processes to create a beautiful, lasting tribute to the one you hold dear.

Creation Process

Ruby Ashes to Glass finished crystal

Each Ashes into Glass stone is unique and just like your loved one, will possess it's own character. It may remind you of a starry night's sky, a wispy cloud up above or maybe the ashes floating on a gentle breeze.
