Cremation has become a popular choice in recent years. Costs are generally lower than traditional methods and consumers have far more options following cremation. Traditionally, urns were chosen. Scattering soon followed and cremation jewelry surfaced. As for the jewelry option, I can understand the appeal. However, I recall catching a glimpse of a funeral director during a news segment on cremation. She said, “We sell a ton of it.” Those words removed the “wow” factor for me. If they sell a “ton” of it, chances are your neighbor might have the same thing.
In my constant search for new options, I heard the term Cremation Art. There is a company who utilizes artists to combine cremated remains with artwork. It’s pretty unique. Follow the link below for the story.
