The Turtle Paperweight
Turtles are symbolic of longevity, protection and wisdom, among other things. Some ancient myths hold that the universe was created by the turtle - the shell formed the heavens, the body formed the earth, and the undershell formed the underworld. Therefore, the turtle symbolically forms a link between heaven and earth.
The Turtle Paperweight contains your loved one's ashes visible on the bottom of the paperweight through a clear glass window. Each is approximately 3" x 2 1/2", and is custom-made to order.
How to order: Our artist will ship a kit so you can safely send the ashes by mail. Easy, step-by-step instructions are included along with a container for you to add proper amount of ashes. A unique number is assigned along with the name of the person or pet. Our system carefully tracks each order throughout the entire process. You can be assured that there will be no intermingling of ashes, as our process keeps each order separate. Please allow 3-4 weeks for your order to be shipped and any unused ashes will be returned.
NOTE: These glass keepsakes are hand made using special coloring treatments during the creation process. Your memorial's color may vary slightly from the picture shown.
