About your Memorial Glass Swirl Paperweight- Our
talented glass artists will incorporate your loved one’s ashes into a beautiful
solid paperweight. Starting with clear molten glass, we then add the ashes with your
choice of colored glass frit, then manipulate the color to create the pattern
and encase it with another layer of clear glass. Each paperweight will be hand-sculpted, unique in shape, color, and design. Just like us -
no two will be alike. The ash creates a variety of white flecks, sometimes dark
spots and bubbles that make your Memorial Glass truly one-of-a-kind. Please do
not display your item in direct sunlight as magnification can cause
heat/fire. Sizes will range from 3.5"-4". Each Memorial Glass
paperweight comes with a light box.
Engraving - Your loved one’s name will be
engraved on the bottom of the paperweight, so please leave the desired name in the
*required text box. This can be your loved one’s first name or nick name. To
opt out of this option please leave “none” in the text box. (Please see the
photo at the end of the photo collection for an example).
