The first memory bead I made was with my son, Dylan’s, cremated remains. I didn’t know if the glass would be compatible with the cremated remains or if it would break as soon as it came out of the annealing kiln, but it didn’t. It was a little rough but I put it on a chain around my neck and was amazed at the sense of peace I felt wearing it. I was surprised how many times a day I would touch it and feel a sense of Dylan with me.
