Capturing memories

There are many ways to create a memorial to remember someone. We have chosen two options here as a suggestion for starters. There are many more available that may suit what you are looking for.

Keep them close with memorial jewellery

Memorial jewellery can be made using ashes, hair, fingerprints and more.

We recommend a local business based in Maynards Green, just south of Heathfield. Meadow Memorials is a business that started in lock-down, initially producing a cremation ashes ring for a friend, Abby Lamb was already a very experienced resin jeweller and she realised instantly that producing memorial jewellery that means so much, felt like a huge honour. She works with cremation ashes, locks of hair, even pieces of fabric or buttons from special items. She also offers a range of items which can be engraved with fingerprints, handwriting or drawings. She works in 925 silver and 9k gold and in some circumstances she can even add ashes to an existing piece of jewellery.

She only uses the highest quality resin and ashes can be made very visible, barely visible or hidden. There is a wide range of background colours and effects available from plain colours, shimmer backgrounds and crushed synthetic opal. She can mix a wide variety of colours and has been asked to match items such as eye colour, a special dress or a birthstone colour.

Get in touch with Abby

She works from her dedicated home studio in Maynards Green and she only ever works on one piece at a time, so there is no chance of a mistake occurring. She takes her job very seriously and treats every inclusion that she is given with the utmost respect and care.

If this is of interest then please do get it touch with her, some people know exactly what they want while others like to be advised. She prides herself on having a friendly, approachable nature so if you would like to chat without obligation, then please do get in touch via email or social media.
