Visiting to see your jewellery being made.
We are open for visitors seven days a week. We have a showroom where you can see the jewellery and our workshops are open Tuesday – Saturday and can see our craftspeople at work. If you would like to come along to see your own items being made, please contact us to make an appointment. When you come along, we’ll show you our process of incorporating the ashes with the coloured crystals and molten glass to make the gemstone. This cools down slowly in our kiln and we will complete the remaining stages after your visit.
When you send us your loved one’s ashes, you are trusting us to look after them and carry out the relevant processes to produce your jewellery. Our commitments are as follows;
The ashes are kept in our locked premises at all times.
All processes are carried out at Barleylands Glassworks. The ashes are never transferred to any other workshop or organisation.
They are kept in a sealed bag in a container.
They are marked clearly with the order details including the order number, name of deceased and customer’s name.
When pieces are produced, they are made separately and individually by James Watts, Bill Rhodes and their team.
Engravings should be 25 characters to include spaces and symbols, the layout will be at the discretion of our experienced engraver considering layout and spacing. We are unable to engraving earrings as they are too small.
We take payment for your order only when the jewellery has been created and is ready for delivery. We can accept most major credit and debit cards over the telephone or in person at our studio. Alternatively, you can send a cheque in the post. Orders are dispatched once we have received cleared payment.
