Ashes With Love specialise in encapsulating loved ones ashes, hair & fur, into beautiful sterling silver jewellery and gifts. We now encapsulate breast milk which is a new way to celebrate your breast feeding journey.
We are two ladies who have lost loved ones, both of the human kind and animal. We know there is no pain so great as the memory of joy in present grief. We see how the loss of a loved one can completely overtake the happiness of memory. You will not get over the loss, but you will learn to live with it and our keepsakes can help you on that journey. Those who you lose can be wherever you are.
Marie and Kim joined forces in 2020 Covid 19 lockdown when both their own businesses were closed during the pandemic. Kim had a successful dog grooming business whereby she often already would find herself creating beautiful pieces of ash jewellery for clients’ dogs who had passed. Marie had a business in nail beauty whose clientele told many a story of loss and often found herself the counsellor for grief.
Both of us share a love of craft and the pride that comes from making things with our hands. In 2019 Marie lost her beloved cat Molly and Kim as a long term friend, made ash jewellery from her ashes, for her and her children. When both saw how much happiness and comfort the jewellery had brought, something awakened. By 2020 Ashes With Love was created.
