If a loved one has passed away and the plan is to have them cremated, you’ll have to decide what to do with the ashes. The good news is that there are many options – but the possibilities are so plentiful that you may have a hard time deciding. When planning the cremation with a funeral home in Prince Albert, SK, ask them about these 3 unique options. Also be sure to discuss them with your loved ones to see if they’re on board for any of these possibilities.
1. Cremation Jewelry
Cremation jewelry is similar to the sort of jewelry you’re used to wearing. The primary difference is that cremation jewelry contains a compartment were cremation ashes can be placed. So if you and your family decide to go this route, you’ll want to find a company that specializes in cremation jewelry. You’ll be able to choose the type of jewelry you want. You might, for instance, select a neckless with a locket in which the ashes of your loved one are placed. It can be a meaningful way to commemorate someone who was near and dear to you.
Do you like to have art on your walls? What about getting a portrait done to commemorate your deceased loved one? You know you can go the extra mile by combining some of the ashes of your deceased loved one with paint. What you will have to do is hire someone who is artistically inclined to mix some of the ashes with paint and to then paint a portrait of your loved one. If you or someone in your family has the skill to do so, then painting a portrait won’t cost much. Otherwise, you can hire someone with the skills needed to do a great job. When the portrait is completed, you can hang it in your living room, dining room, bedroom, or someplace else.
While not everyone wants to get a tattoo, you might want to consider getting one to commemorate a deceased relative. You can make it even more meaningful by mixing some fo the cremation ashes into the ink before getting tattooed. You will, of course, have to find a tattoo artist who will be willing to take on this assignment. It will certainly be a unique way to remember someone you got to know and love in this lifetime.
These are, of course, just a handful of options if you’re looking for unique things to do with the cremated remains of your relative.
