Each of these beautiful pendants contains a galaxy within. Infused with your loved one’s ashes as well as a man-made opal, this piece is perfect for keeping your dearly departed close to your heart. Please note that the cabochon may rotate within the cage and may shift position slightly with larger motions, but it is well secured and will not fall out. This piece is available with one large opal or two smaller opals. The coloring of the dichroic glass is as shown, but the colors and distribution of coloring may vary and the patterns will vary. Opal placement will also vary. The following are the opal variations we offer for this piece: large white sphere, large black sphere, white crescent moon and star, white full moon and star.
This piece is a gorgeous collaboration between Charles Shoulders and Mike Kozumplik. Each cabochon is handmade to order from flame-worked borosilicate glass, and infused with a small amount of ash from your loved one. Wisps of precious 24k gold and a solid silver fume are added before setting the cabochon into a hand-fabricated, sterling silver setting, specifically designed to have a galactic aesthetic. Every cabochon and silver setting are one of a kind.
The mist within the glass cabochon is formed by the vaporization of pure silver or gold over the glass during its creation. This process is called precious metal fuming. These vapors create wispy patterns and subtle coloring. The gold fume usually appears in gold, copper, or peach tones, and the silver usually appears in blue or white tones. Sometimes other coloring will be present, most noticeable in direct sunlight. The fumed colors are incidental and unpredictable. For this reason, we cannot guarantee a specific color. However, you may request gold and/or silver in your order notes, and you may also request the level of fuming. Here is an illustrative video of fume volume (“more” or “less”).
This piece can be purchased with an optional Rhodium Plated Sterling Silver engraved charm. To add the charm to your order, go to the listing, select your charm and add to cart.

We at Spirit Pieces believe that memorializing loved ones is best done as a family. Towards that end we offer 10% percent off orders over $300 with increasing percentages off as additional items are purchased. We suggest a single person order and distribute the Spirit Pieces to keep everything as simple as possible. We can ship to multiple addresses if need be, however we charge $10 per additional address and you need to communicate this in the order notes.
You can order all the same item, or all different items, in terms of the discount as long as you exceed the discount threshold you'll receive the discount.
Please keep in mind that as we're an artist collective, our artists are in different locations so if multiple artists are ordered from you'll need to send out multiple kits. We cover the cost of sending you the collection kit, sending you the memorial, but not the cost of sending the kit back to us. We ask you send the collection kit(s) back priority express with signature.

Common Family Ordering Questions:
If I order from different artists, does that affect the discount?
No, discounts are based on total cart value, so every item can be a different color/artist. As long as it's all in the same order you'll get the discount.
Do all my items need to be the same style/color
No, they can all be different
I want to send some items to different locations, how do I do this?
We offer free shipping as long as a single artist is sending to a single location. If you need to have an artist send different pieces to different locations, you need to purchase additional address credits.
