Combination Ash or Hair Keepsake Pendant
Keep your beloved cat or cats close to you always with one of these silver cremation Memory Pendants® by artist Linda Huffman! These are just like the colorful original Memory Pendants®, but surrounded with Argentium Silver and capable of holding either a small amount of cremains or a lock of hair from your cat. Choose a square, rectangular, or round shape. Visible style has a viewing area on the back through which you may view the ash or hair, or you may choose to omit the viewing area in favor of a solid silver back to keep the contents known only to yourself. You may include from 1 to 3 cats in this pendant, with a small additional charge for each additional cat to be included.
All Memory Pendants have several layers of glass covered by a clear glass cap that protects the dichroic glass coatings and gives each piece of cremation jewelry the depth and full, rich colors for which Linda is known. The visible style has a clear piece of glass directly over the small amount of ash in the center of the pendant and the non-visible style has an opaque piece of dichroic glass covering the ash with the same amount of cremains being used in both styles. Once the memorial is custom designed and hand made to your specifications, it is placed in a kiln at 1500 degrees F for several hours. Then it gradually cools down over up to 8 hours. After a strict quality inspection to check for any flaws, it may undergo a second kiln treatment. Afterward, it is cleaned, polished, and inspected again. Great care is taken to ensure only the best memorial for your beloved cat.
Small round Keepsake is 1" across with a 3/4" glass cab and 1/2" viewing area on back. Large round and square Keepsakes are 1-1/4" across. Glass in the large round or square pieces are 1" across. Rectangular Keepsake is 1-1/4" x 1-5/8" with a 7/8" x 1" glass cab. Viewing area on the back of the large pieces is is 5/8" across.
Argentium® Silver is the most tarnish-resistant silver available today. Invented in the 1990s, this fine silver is .925 silver, but the compounded metal is Germanium instead of the nickel or copper used in most Sterling silver. This element makes the silver more durable and less prone to tarnishing or firescale. L. Huffman Studios is a registered licensee by Argentium® Silver.
Each pendant comes with a complementary black cord from 16"-24", or you may choose to omit the cord. Also available for an additional $26.95 is an 18" sterling silver snake chain for more formal wear.
When you order this pendant, you will receive a collection kit from Linda that will include instructions for you to select the colors in your pendant and the cord length, as well as a vial for you to send in the cremains or hair. If you would like to send a photo of your cat along with the kit, Linda would appreciate having this to help her visualize the cat as she works. Your pendant will be custom made, which could take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks. Any remaining ash will be returned to you with your pendant. No two are alike.
The pendant is highly durable, but is susceptible to scratches and should be protected from scraping against anything that would scratch the surface.
