Hi! My name is Julie, I'm the founder of The Golden Bead and the artisan who will be working with you on your memorial. I began making beads years ago, with my faithful Golden Retriever, Remington, at my side. When he passed on, I was devastated but I turned that emotion into passion for my Glasswork and decided to name my business after my golden boy. Now as The Golden Bead grows, I am honored to help others create memorials to those dear to them in life.
Thank you for trusting me with your precious loved ones. I want you to know your ashes are treated with utmost respect from the moment I receive them. Remains are labeled and placed in a handmade ceramic vessel with the order. Each memorial is created one at a time. My work area is cleaned after each order so there is no chance of cross contamination.
Collecting the ashes can be very emotional and sometimes difficult to do. You may need to ask for help from a friend, clergy, funeral home or veternarian. Just remember the results will be beautiful and very empowering.
We pride ourselves on creating custom pieces to best memorialize your pet, and so each price is custom. However here are a few guidelines to help you make your decisions.
We will discuss size and color during the consultation.
Once we have received your kit, had our consultation, sent our invoice and recieved payment, you can expect a 2 week wait while we create your customized memorial. We will notify you when your piece ships.
If we haven't answered your question here, or if you'd just like to get in touch before committing to anything, feel free to give us a call or shoot us an e-mail.
