I made this for a customer who said a few words to me when I truly needed to hear them. Making the orbs I try and be that person that helps you memorialize your loss and create something beautiful that you can study and stare at, so that you can have your beautiful memory on display, a conversation piece if you choose – but this day she popped in for a quick visit and listened to me, she heard my fears, my worries and without even knowing – she helped me.
People ask all the time can you make the orb to hang – I always say no. From a technical stand point the remains need to be inside the glass making the “Ball” too heavy. But I tried it – for this lady that lifted my spirits up when she didn’t have to and this is what I got.
My plan? To wrap it up for her.
