Having jewellery made with the ashes of a loved one as a keepsake, is very popular.
I don’t make jewellery, but I do create energy art, and as I work in a very shamanic way, I offer this service to those who are looking to preserve a little of the ashes of a loved one in something beautiful for their home.
I use healing breath and Reiki energies to allow the ashes to flow and embed into the paint, creating beautiful energetic abstract images.
The process is a beautiful experience for me, as I connect with the loved one, and paint intuitively. The space is set slightly differently to my usual work, so I can ensure the ashes are treated with the gentle respect they deserve.
I have elements from the four directions around me –
Feathers symbolising air to smudge the paper, filtered crystal energised water, a pure soy candle, or incense for the fire element, and flowers or crystals from the earth chosen specifically for the piece.
For this work I always use handmade rag paper from a paper mill on Exmoor to ensure the highest vibrations are held within the painting.
All pieces are framed locally by a framer who has the ultimate respect for the work he is given, so I am safe in the knowledge that the whole process is kept sacred from start to finish.
I’m not always clairvoyant, so I won’t have messages for you, but I can assure you that your piece of art is being created with love and understanding of the impact a lost loved one can have on your family.
Please contact me so we can discuss your requirements.
Each piece is so individual and can vary in size.
To ensure the ashes reach me safely, I suggest that you send them recorded delivery. I only need a tablespoon at the most. The ashes are kept in a special case, and any that are unused will be returned.
Prices start from £330 for a piece framed to 12” square.
