When Gun-Hee died, I got a couple of different charms to put a bit of his ashes in, and I wanted to get something similar so I could carry a bit of Logan with me, too. Browsing different types of ash jewellry, I discovered Sugar Oh Honey Honey. They are a small workshop in Swindon, Oxfordshire, England, who make personalised photo and ashes jewellery. I am not sure how they make the ash jewellery (it seems like it might be resin casting, but it could be glass), but the results are stunning. Even better, there is a black Sphynx named Coco Beane supervising all the humans as they make everything!
As “Boss Lady” Vicky Rose explains, she started her company in memory of her daughter Honey so she could help people through jewellery. And it really shows. The packaging was exquisite. I opened the little box to see a happy yellow card and sparkly tinsel.
Jacoby was there to help me open it, of course.
On the back of the card was a hand-written note from Vicky.
This is what I found underneath the card. Of course, Lorelai was very interested in the shimmery, rustly tinsel.
Nestled in the tinsel were two drawstring bags and a box.
I opened this one first.
It was a bracelet with a charm with Logan’s photo on it! This was such a lovely surprise because I didn’t order it! They just threw it in as a bonus. Isn’t that amazing?
I opened this bag next. It contained Logan’s leftover ashes that weren’t used in the pendant. I mean, they could have just tossed them and said they used them all, but instead they sent them back in a pretty bag.
Finally I opened the box. WOW! Isn’t it beautiful?
And the best part is, it glows in the dark!
After I ordered it, the “Tech Girl,” Megan Chase, sent me an email explaining how to send in a bit of Logan’s ashes and added, “We would also love to know more about the pet/person you are sending to us along with a name and pictures (if you have any) and a favourite song, as we like to play music while making each individual piece.” So of course I directed her to this blog, because clearly it’s the best way to learn about who Logan was. In a follow-up email, Megan told me, “Your blog is so lovely to read, I’ve found myself spending some of my spare time reading it,” which is just so sweet! So, Megan, I hope you liked this post!
Angel added this whilst I was away from my laptop: äòp0y………………u. I think it may be a message to Megan.

That pendant is amazing! And how cool that they added the charm to the order. Very thoughtful.
“Wow! How wonderful! So sad, but so nice to be able to carry Logan around with you all the time! Now he will truly be forever by your side!
