Brea, (PressExposure) April 08, 2009 -- Peternity, an online company specializing in pet memorial markers and products, has teamed up with a custom glass artist to create a variety of amazing, signature memorial products created with a small amount of your own pet's cremains.
For those of us who have been in the awful position of losing a beloved pet, taking the cremains of our pet home can be more than a little bit heartbreaking (but not taking them can be even worse). Gratefully, there is finally a heartwarming alternative to traditional urns or grave markers. Peternity, an online company specializing in pet memorial markers and products, has teamed up with a custom glass artist to create a variety of products created by using a small amount of your own pet's cremains. The cremains are sent to the artist and are infused into the molten glass of the beads. The glass is then wound and shaped by hand to create a memorial beaded product as unique as your loved one. The artist will then choose a variety of complementary colored beads and crystals to string onto your necklace, bracelet or suncatcher. These unique and handmade beaded pieces become a beautiful, light-filled way to cherish your dear pet's memory.
Peternity is a staffed by its founder, Colleen Mihelich, and a small, caring group of pet lovers, who are dedicated to honoring and celebrating the love we share with our pets. http://www.Peternity.com was born out of Colleenâs need to find a truly valuable vocation, her deep understanding of grief, and her amazing love for animals. Each of us who has been touched by the loss of a beloved pet and understands the heartache of that loss. Colleenâs mission is to provide the same respect for the loss of a pet that the world would always offer for the loss of any other life-long friend.
Peternity is continually looking for unique, handcrafted pieces of art to express the love, joy and memories that a pet brings to families each day, all over the world. In business since 2003, Peternityâs standards are very high, and they offer memorial items of the finest quality and workmanship. Whether it is a beautiful, hand turned wooden urn or a stunning glass memorial keepsake box , each piece is lovingly crafted and personalized by the hands of an artist.
Memorial products are offered in every style and are accessible to every budget. There are a variety of products and styles to be found in the new hand-crafted glass jewelry line. For instance, the suncatcher comes in three different lengths and can be individually customized. Necklaces also come in a variety of styles and colors and traditionally contain beads from 1/2" - 1" in size, depending on the style requested, these can also be upgraded roughly 1/4" in size. You can even use your own chain if you prefer. Virtually anything can be done to make your jewelry something you can cherish. The silver plated bangle bracelet is pliable enough to be adjusted to fit your wrist and contains memory beads 1/2" in size as well as sterling silver beds that are secured to the bangle to hold your memory bead in place, and can also be customized (for instance, you can add additional glass side beads).
Finally, although Peternity does not offer grief counseling, they are often a conduit for a grieving individual or family to find some peace. Recommended counseling services and community support may be found on their website. Sometimes finding peace can be as simple as marking oneâs love for their pet through a memorial marker, customized jewelry or quality artisan products, or even joining the complimentary online âvirtualâ pet memorial. Colleen Mihelich and her team are amazingly compassionate and understand that their service goes far beyond the simple sale of a product. They are often the link between a lifetime of love and a lifetime of memories.
