Loosing your best friend
One of, if not the biggest fear of pet owners is losing your best friend. The thought of it alone is heart breaking.
When faced with having to say goodbye to our furry friends, pet owners often look for keepsakes as a way to gain a bit of comfort and there are so many that you can choose from. Having a precious keepsake with you wherever you go that you can touch and hold whenever you need to feel close to your pet is life changing. Being able to hold a small piece of your pet in your hands whenever you want to provides a lifeline during your darkest moments and we are here to help you every step of the way.
Cheeky Little Prints are specialists in handcrafting silver paw print jewellery and are delighted to now be able to create silver jewellery encasing your pet’s fur or cremation ashes in resin. Cremation ashes memorial jewellery are truly beautiful keepsakes that last a lifetime and beyond. There is a stunning collection of jewellery designs to choose from including charm beads, pendants, earrings and cufflinks and the designs offered will expand over time.
Can you make jewellery out of cremation ashes?
Yes, absolutely. To create your beautiful memorial jewellery we only need a very small amount of ash, half a teaspoon is usually more than enough. When you place your order you will be sent a little kit with full instructions to enable you to send us a little of your pet’s precious fur or cremation ashes. Each piece of bespoke memorial jewellery is carefully created in several layers.
Your chosen resin colour will be carefully mixed and a little added to your silver jewellery design. Then each tiny piece of ash is gently placed onto the resin one at a time with tweezers. Once everything is carefully in place, this thin layer of resin is cured (set). This delicate process is carefully repeated until your jewellery design is completed with a layer of beautiful clear resin.
Creating pet fur or cremation ashes memorial jewellery is a delicate process and only one piece of special jewellery is created at any one time in a clean environment to ensure each design is given our full attention and care.
Pet fur and cremation ashes memorial jewellery
Our beautiful collection of jewellery can be created with both pet fur and cremation ashes, whichever you have and would like used. Jewellery designs can be created with both fur and ashes together if you wish, just let us know when you place your order. You probably have a lot of pet fur in your house, we certainly do, Sammy and Luna continuously malt everywhere!
If your furbaby is no longer with you though, and you would like to keep and treasure some of your pet’s fur, often vets take a clipping of fur for pet parents to keep and cherish and a little bit of this is perfect to create your special jewellery. Your pet’s fur will be trimmed to fit the jewellery design you have chosen.
Just as fur comes in many different colours, you may or may not be aware that cremation ashes can also vary in colour widely from a pale white or cream colour to various shades of light to dark grey. There are many things that influence the colour of cremation ashes including if your pet was overweight as the amount of adipose tissue can affect the colour of cremation ashes. However, even though ashes can vary widely in colour and how powdery they are, all colours etc are normal so please don’t worry if you have more than one pet and their ashes are different colours, both are absolutely fine.

How much does it cost to have ashes made into jewellery?
Memorial jewellery encasing a little of your pet’s precious fur or cremation ashes can vary in price depending on the materials used to create the jewellery, for example our jewellery is created with sterling silver, which costs more than silver plated jewellery designs. Some jewellery companies may charge more than others but check out their experience, to ensure they are the best people to be creating your special jewellery. We spent years learning and perfecting our techniques and designs before we began offering this special jewellery.
Our beautiful collection of pet fur and cremation ashes memorial jewellery start at just £85 and this includes all postage charges. All finished jewellery is posted to you via Royal Mail Special Delivery so it is fully insured and due to arrive with you by 1pm the day after it is posted.
What colour resin should I choose for my memorial jewellery?
We currently have 22 different colours of resin for you to choose from for your very special jewellery. The best colour to choose will depend on what your colour preferences are in general as well as the colour of the fur or ashes you wish to include in your special jewellery. Often darker fur or ashes are more visible with lighter resin colours and vice versa but that is not always the case and sometimes pet owners prefer the fur or ashes to be more hidden than visible, it’s personal preference. If you are unsure on the best colour to choose, please get in touch and we will be happy to help guide you to the best option.
Can I have my memorial jewellery personalised with my pet’s name?
Yes, our jewellery designs can be personalised with your pet’s name engraved on the back, except for our earring designs as there is not enough room on those. A lot of other jewellery companies don’t give you the option to have your pet’s name or a special date engraved on your jewellery, but we do as we understand how important it is to pet owners to have their bespoke jewellery personalised. We collaborate with a local expert engraving centre who do some truly amazing engraving work. You can choose from 5 different fonts for your engraving as well when you place your order online.
Why pet owners love our pet fur and cremation ashes memorial jewellery
We love to hear from pet owners how much their special jewellery means to them and how much it has helped them cope. Here are a few reviews…
Absolutely stunning product. Sadly my Labrador passed away and we chose to purchase a necklace with his ashes and fur in. Lisa was super helpful from the start and the process was very quick. Highly recommend Lisa at cheeky little prints, I am so happy with the finished product.
Excellent Products and customer service, My Wife loves the Tear Pendant and Chain it’s absolutely lovely she will always cherish it knowing that some of our late beloved Border Terriers ashes are skill fully placed within the lovely pendant, Thank you Lisa for making what is a very upsetting time a little bit easier with lovely crafted jewellery to help ease a loved ones loss. I cannot recommend Cheeky Little Prints service enough.
This is Customer service the way it should be,
I contacted the company more than once about changing an engraving and how the ashes of my dogs were used. They’re response was quick and nothing seemed to be a problem for them even after I’d changed my mind and asked for things to be changed.
It really was a joy dealing with them and I even got through to Lisa when I needed an answer.
The way that handled everything was perfect even down to the hand written card enclosed with my order.
Thank you Cheeky Little Prints .. for everything!!!
