Passages International, Inc. Now Offers Hand-Crafted Jewelry Using Cremated Remains & Hair

Using an ingenious encapsulation process, Passages International Inc. uses cremated remains or a lock of hair to create one-of-a-kind fashion jewelry, stylish frames and plaques. While families continue to seek cutting-edge memorial alternatives, this is a great means of personalizing memories of a special someone or beloved pet.

This is a very unique product line as the cremated remains and hair are visible in the jewelry, and very precious to the jewelry owner. The cremated remains offers an exquisite, granite-like look. The hair is stylishly hand-laid into each piece creating one of the most extraordinary jewelry items available today.

“Because each piece is hand-crafted, no two are alike. Each keepsake is as unique as the person or pet it represents,” says Passages’ President, Darren Crouch. “The Sentimental Connections product line is the perfect complement to the sale of any traditional or non-traditional merchandise and, as a result, they are excellent revenue generators for funeral providers.”

Silver Plated pendant samples are available for purchase and will be accompanied by point-of-sale display materials. Those that display samples and brochures generate significantly more orders than those that don’t.

Sentimental Connections jewelry pieces are exquisite and timeless. They allow one to proudly hold close those memories of a person or pet. Available in Sterling Silver, Gold Plated and Solid Gold, these keepsakes are hand-crafted in the USA.
