It’s no secret that cremation is rapidly becoming more popular than burial — and for a few good reasons.
Apart from the rapidly growing expense of burial, cremation gives the friends and family of the deceased more freedom about how and where they would like to keep their loved one’s ashes. There are dozens of different cremation services these days that allow you to transform your or your loved one’s remains into a work of art.
Are you looking for ideas on how to preserve your loved one’s memory after they’re gone? Here are a few unique ways to keep a loved one’s ashes.
Play their Favorite Song
Whether your loved one was a musician or a music lover, one of the most popular alternative ways to keep their ashes around is by having them pressed into a record.
When you have a loved one’s ashes turned into a record, you’ll be able to listen to their favorite song or even a recording of them singing whenever you like. On top of that, because of the ashes, each record will contain unique pops and hisses that are your loved one’s final musical contribution.
Create Memorial Jewelry
Another popular trend in cremation services is the creation of urn jewelry. With urn or cremation jewelry, you’ll be able to keep your loved one with you everywhere you go.
One of the best parts of having cremation jewelry made is that there are plenty of options available. So no matter you or your loved one’s style, you’ll be able to find a piece that captures their spirit that you can also comfortably wear around.
Whether you decide to have their ashes pressed into a diamond or want to find an urn necklace for ashes, memorial jewelry is a fantastic way to keep your loved one’s memory alive and with you no matter where you go.
Light Up the Sky
Don’t want to keep your loved one’s cremation ashes sitting around collecting dust? If you plan on spreading your loved one’s ashes but want to send them off with a real bang, you may want to consider having their ashes turned into a firework.
Having your loved one’s ashes turned into a firework is an excellent and fun way to give them a memorable send-off and one last chance to light your world. So, if you don’t plan on keeping your loved one’s ashes and like fireworks, then this may be the perfect option for you.
