Cremation Jewelry Testimonials

THANK YOU to each and every one of my customers (many of whom have also become my friends).  THANK YOU for the moral support and encouragement.  I am so honored and moved by the expressions of gratitude that I have received via emails and cards that I have decided to create this "testimonials" link. I hope you will take a few moments to read some of the comments I've received.

Hi Vangie,  they are so incredibly perfect.  The hearts brought me to tears.  I love the flat beads for the guys.  The turquoise and black one for my newphew will go perfectly with the one you made him for his grandma.  You have such a wonderful gift.  Today is 3 years since Grant died and I have been wearing my bead.  Thank you again.  You are one special lady.   Nancy

Hi Vangie, thank you sooo much for the sun catchers!  I absolutely love them; they are very beautiful.

Hi Vangie,  So sorry I haven't gotten back to you.  Needless to say, my mom was overjoyed with her beads.  They fit perfectly on her Pandora bracelet, and she wears them everyday.  Thank you very much for the beautiful work you do, Elizabeth

~~~

Vangie, the bead is wonderful.  Better than I imagined.  Thank you for the blessing, Donna

Oh Vangie, to say that I am over the moon with the finished beads is an understatement.  The colors you used are the exact colors of our "friends," ia spot on and the craftsmanship is just stunning!!!   Thank you, thank you, thank you, Elizabeth

Hi Vangie, the bead arrived today.  I love the purple heart.  My neighbor just came over and I was showing her - and she is on her way to the funeral home.  She is going to  tell the family about you.  Thanks, Sue

~~~

Hi Vangie,  Sorry for not writing to you sooner!  It has been a very busy week!  I wanted to let you know, I received the bead and when I first opened it (Chuky Bead), I was a bit confused because I was thinking the bead would hang like a pendant and have a silver piece at the top (like a pendant) where I would feed through my black leather necklacce to hang it from.  But, the longer I waited to email, I realize I really am going to like it in the sideways fomat.  I don't have any other beads that hang like that so it is really unique.  Also, I love the green heart idea!  Just perfect.  Thank you again for coming up with the idea of honoring spirits in this way!  I am sure I will be touch again!  Best, Janice

~~~

Hi Vangie,  thank you so much for my Sally bead.  It is just perfect. You captured the beauty of her black, brown, and white coloring in a unique and warm way.  The little brown heart melts mine just as she did.  I put the bead on my Pandora bracelet the moment I got in the car.   On the ride home I kept touching it, stroking it, thinking of Sally.  Chuck looked over and smiled and said, "Don't wear it out."  I just can't keep my finger and eye off it.  Thank you for making something so special for me to wear.  Sally would have loved you and taken all the hugs and pats she could garner.  All my best, Kathy

Vangie,  thanks for doing such a wonderful job.   All the beads were beautiful and unique.   I was worried when I decided to do this because it is so personal, but you showed such pride and dignity with what you do and the way you do it, that it made everything seem special.   Everyone that I gave a pendant to was so grateful to be able to now have a part of someone that was so special to them, with them all the time.   Once again, thanks so much, Anthony

I love the beads.  I put one on my Pandora bracelet and the other on a chain...I show them off to everyone!  My only question is, can I or should I shower with them on?
VCLAMPWORK RESPONSE:  You may shower or bathe with your beads on....it will not damage the glass.  Just polish your sterling silver from time to time to keep it shiny

Hi Vangie,  my beads arrived today and they brought tears to my eyes.    The color is just what I envisioned, and it is a wonderful rememberence of my Dad.   I put my bead on my Cape Cod bracelt that I purchased after my father's death and it looks beautiful.   My daughter was very close to her Papa and she absolutely loves her bead.  I know that we will both treasure these beads and the special meaning they have.   Thank you for making this possible!   Again, thank you for making these beads so quickly!  Chris

Dear Vangie,  the earrings arrived yesterday and they are beautiful.  Thank you for the thought you put into making them special.   They are bright and colorful - full of life, just like my mother was.   Your use of pastel colors was fitting as my mother always wore pastels.   Thank you also for your prompt service.  Lesley

Hi Vangie,  I got the bead/necklace yesterday!  Thank you so much, it's gorgeous!  The hard part now is not giving it to her before Christmas!  We lost another kitty a couple years ago to diabetes.  I'm excited now to have you make another bead!  Her birthday is coming up.  I may be contacting you again soon!

 OMG the are BEAUTIFUL Vangie!  When the parcel notice came in the mail I just knew that it was my Trapper and he had finally made his way home.  Thank you from the depths of my heart.  The color and design in the pendant are beautiful as you have captured his beauty, his gracefulness, his love.   I love how his ashes sparkle back at me.  Nothing will every replace those wonderful hugs Tapper used to give me, and only time will ease the void in my life, but by being able to have his ashes close to me and to have his pictures helps to keep his love inside of me.  Thank you...you have truly been blessed with a givt to help others.

Hi Vangie,  I am wearing my cremation bead today and I realized that I never wrote to you.   Anyway, I love it and wear it often!  It makes me feel...I don't know..."good" is not the right word but, maybe, "close" to my beloved Bitsy.  People comment on it all the time.  It's very unusual and very beautiful.  Sue

~~~

Hi Vangie, I want to thank you again for the beads of my cat, Winter.  It means so much to me to have a small part of him with me every day.  You are compassionate and understanding, and create such a beautiful piece of jewelry based on so little, and yet you are able to capture exactly what I was looking for.  I am so pleased with the beads you created, and will likely come to you in the future for more pieces.  Kristen

Vangie, Thank you so much.  I love it.  I wear it every day.  Martha

Hi Vangie,  the bead and earrings you made of Merri Puppins are just WONDERFUL.  The strength in the design reminds me of the strength of her small but mighty heart.  The colors remind me of her beauty, and the necklace and earrings make me smile, which she did every day.  While we may want our pets to live forever, we know that it is impossible, so thank you for giving me Puppins back in a way that honors her, and has her continuing to bring me joy.  Thank you again, Cindy

Dear Vangie,  thank you very much for Summer Snow's amazing bead.  It is so beautiful and it is such a gift to have her beauty and essense so close to my heart again.  I treasure it.  I've gotten several compliments on it, but only share it's inner beauty with those who will understand.  I am in awe of you, your passion, and your ability to create such tangible and beautiful reminders of our beloved pets.  It is such a gift, thank you.   Joyce

Vangie, I did not want to take off my Vegas bead last night - once again my Schmeagle was back sleeping next to me.  This time on my night stand instead of the floor!!!!  Welcome back home, my little girl!  Love, Deb

Hi Vangie, I love my necklace.  I have it on again today and I find myself holding it, just holding it, a few times during the day and thinking about my Brandi.  Again, thank you for such a beautiful pendant which I will always cherish and I am so happy that we met.  I'm sure our paths will cross again!  Kathy

Vangie, I know I've said it a bunch of times, but I cannot thank you enough.  Your beads are so beautiful!
Having part of Logan with me is priceless.  And, you are just such a kind-spirited person.  
It is a pleasure to have met you!  Sincerely, Shari

Hi Vangie, I wanted to let you know that Ann loved the pendant and earrings.  She put them on right away.  They were perfect for her.  Thank you for everything, Sue

Hi Vangie, I absolutely love the bead!  It is perfect!  A true tribute to my Tyson.  I can't wait to fit it to a chain and wear it which I plan on doing this weekend.  I know it must have taken you quite awhile to do, and I appreciate your effort.  I will wear it proudly and tell everyone that asks about you!  Thanks again, Donna
