Three Interesting Ways To Use Ashes After Cremation


When someone is cremated, it can be hard to know what to do with the ashes. There are some individuals who want to have their ashes spread and some who want their ashes to be saved in some way so that their loved ones can feel that they always have a piece of them. If you want to be cremated when you pass away, use the guide below to learn about a few options you may not know are available to you when it comes to the use of your ashes after you pass away.

In Jewelry

There are now companies that create small pieces of jewelry for your loved ones to wear that will contain your ashes in them. The jewelry is available in many different styles and designs to ensure that each family member is able to choose a piece that they will feel comfortable wearing. Contact the jewelry company that you plan to use to prepay for the pieces so that no one has to pay for the jewelry.

In Artwork

There are companies that now use the ashes to create different types of artwork that your loved ones can display in their homes. The ashes can be used to create paintings or even be pressed into glass blocks to make intricate designs that show vividly when light is shined through them. If you plan to have your ashes used to create artwork, be sure that you choose the design you want everyone to have before you pass.

In Fireworks

A great way to use your ashes is to have them added to fireworks. This will give everyone the opportunity to say goodbye to you in a fun and exciting way. There will be limitations as to where the fireworks can be shot off, just because every area has its own rules about fireworks. You can choose the firework display you want to have created for your family, which can make the event even more special for them. You can meet with the firework company to create all of the colors, sizes, and designs of the fireworks to make a completely customized event for your family to enjoy.

Once you have decided which one of these options are the best option for you and your family, be sure to write specifically what you want to have happen in a will. This will ensure that your wishes are followed by your family and chosen cremation services when you pass away.
