A Complete Guide To Spirit Pieces
Losing a loved one is an unimaginable loss. It’s deep-felt grief, sometimes even an overwhelming feeling of abandonment, that we carry for the rest of our life.
How do we cope with a loss of that magnitude?
Most of us have, at one point in our life, been subjected to this harsher reality, and we find a coping mechanism. We press pause on our feelings, find healthy or unhealthy ways to divert our attention and do everything we can to continue life without our loved ones.
But we’ve been doing it all wrong, haven’t we?
Our loved ones don’t need to be forgotten to make our lives livable. No. They have to be honored and remembered. And the best way to do that is through spirit pieces.
What Are Spirit Pieces?
Our loved one’s ashes deserve a better final resting place than the vase on our mantelpieces, and spirit pieces serve that purpose.
For those of you who’re new to the term, spirit pieces are memorials that can be held and touched. They’re crafted with a unique glass-and-remains infusion process—swirls of ashes and gorgeous colors that sparkle and shine. There really couldn’t be a better way to memorialize a loved one.
If you have, like most readers, decided to turn to Google to find a spirit piece maker that offers the fastest delivery, we’re here to tell you that it’s not the time to make impulsive decisions.
We’re talking about the ashes of our loved ones. If something goes wrong during the memorial creation process, you’ll feel grief, resentment, and anger, and most of it, you’ll direct at yourself. You’d be left in more pieces than you were when you started your journey towards making their memory timeless.
To avoid this possibility, you must do your research before selecting a company to deliver the service. With so many businesses offering cremation art, it can be quite a trip to find one that best suits the vibe you’re looking for.
Here’s a tip: Look for businesses that do all the crafting themselves, not businesses that outsource it. Celebration Ashes can prove to be the perfect starting point.

“I simply cannot believe how gorgeous this is - it shimmers and sparkles like starlight, which is what my Mother is. This was her favorite color and it’s extremely comforting to see it every day. Especially when the sunlight hits it, pictures do not do it justice. Thank you so much to the incredible crafts person who made this - it means the world to me..”-Maura Casey (ordered the Cremation Glass Art Paperweight Egg with Ashes | Zephyr | Zephyr )

The colors are gorgeous with swirls of purple and pale blue (just like her eyes), and just the right amount of sparkle and iridescence. It is a beautiful reminder of the special bond we shared, I will cherish it for the rest of my life. Thank you to the artists and crew at Celebration Ashes for this wonderful tribute to my heart dog.

Perks of Purchasing Spirit Pieces from Celebration Ashes
Knowing that your loved ones' remains and private information are safe and secure with a professional artisan who understands the remains’ importance in your life is perhaps the most important perk of purchasing glass pieces from Celebration Ashes.
Where do you keep these spirit pieces? Wouldn’t they topple or fall over? That’s a possibility that worries even the most optimistic of us. We’d like to assure you that all our pieces are designed to be stable and lie flat on any surface. You can place them in any part of your house—among the family pictures, dining table, workstation, basically, anywhere you see fit.
We also understand just how crucial the healing process is and aim to be your partner through all your ups and downs. This is why we send a complimentary hand-blown glass touchstone to all our members. These touchstones fit in the palm of your hand, allowing you to carry your loved one’s memory wherever you go.
Why Choose Celebration Ashes?
The spirit pieces industry is comparatively new, yes, but it has its fair share of businesses and products on the market.
So, why should you pick Celebration Ashes when you have companies like Spirit Pieces with their expansive range of product offerings and Artful Ashes with their beautiful collection of cremation art pieces?
The distinction, it would seem, is hard to define. But what we do know is this—when it comes to the ashes and remains of our loved ones, we’re not open to taking any chances. We want to work with people we can trust.
Living in an age driven by technology, a human element is typically absent in many transactions. For example, when you choose to place an order with a business like Spirit Pieces, the information you enter on their website is forwarded to an artist on contract along with the Collection kit. While they work beautifully, there’s no assurance that their contracted artisans equate the process with the honor and attention it deserves.
On the other hand, Celebration Ashes does every step of the process in-house. You will never face any problems with transactions, personal information, and other sensitive customer data. Plus, we have great pricing options, positive reviews from customers and are confident of our customer-centric approach.
Trust us to make a comforting, ethereal spirit piece out of your pet’s and loved one’s ashes.
