Warm and natural, strong and enduring cremation jewelry made from wood has a simple beauty that appeals to both men and women. All kinds of wood are used in making cremation jewelry, from exotic woods, such as the ancient kauri wood harvested from 50,000 year old swamps in New Zealand, to more common species, such as oak, walnut, cherry, and cedar.
One of the most appealing things about wood cremation jewelry is the fact that every wood cremation keepsake is unique in more ways than one. In the first place, every piece of wood that goes into memorial jewelry is natural, ensuring a one-of-a-kind wood urn pendant with patterns and colors unlike any other. The skilled wood craftsmen who create wood cremation jewelry hand-turn and work each piece to bring out its natural beauty and luster.
Wear Wood Cremation Jewelry Discreetly or Openly:
Wood cremation jewelry offers the wearer a choice. The timeless beauty of a wood cremation keepsake is appropriate for any occasion, and the simple design can be worn over or under clothing. Because the wood hides the ash pendant's contents, you can choose whether or not you wish to tell anyone the tender story of your memorial necklace.
Another feature of wood cremation jewelry that adds to its appeal is affordability. For prices much lower than cremation jewelry made of silver or gold, you can purchase a beautiful wood urn necklace that will last forever, serving as a family heirloom for generations to come. In fact, wood cremation jewelry is so affordable; every member of your family can have his or her own memorial necklace to commemorate your loved one.
Maintaining the Beauty of Your Wood Urn Jewelry:
Inside each wood cremation pendant is a hollow chamber designed to hold a small amount of your loved one's cremated remains, a few grains of soil from the earth surrounding your loved one's grave, a pinch of pulverized funeral flowers, or a lock of hair. Add a drop or two of Krazy® Glue or waterproof glue to the screw or bale opening when you replace it to protect the contents from moisture and add an extra measure of safety and security.
With proper cleaning and storage, you can preserve your wood cremation jewelry's beauty forever. When you're not wearing your cremation pendant, be sure to store it in its own protective case, away from direct sunlight, as sunlight may cause the color fade, and your ash pendant may become scratched if it is stored with other jewelry pieces.
Cleaning wood cremation jewelry is easy. Simply dust the ash pendant and chain with any soft cloth - cotton or micro fiber is ideal. Aerosol cleaning products contain alcohol, which should not be used on wood cremation jewelry, as it can cause the wood to dry and crack. To protect your cremation jewelry's beauty and luster, clean the wood with oil soap, dry with a soft cloth, and apply a thin coating of olive oil for protection.
