• Furever Keepsakes •
Each lovely Furever Keepsake contains a small amount of cremains (about half a teaspoon), hair or teeth from your loved one. I can use cremains, hair, or teeth from pets in all my work, however I will not accept orders involving human cremains, hair or teeth. Once your request form has been submitted, and payment is made, I will send you a collection kit for the cremains/hair/teeth within seven business days. Once the kit is returned, I will ship your Furever Keepsake within 6 weeks unless otherwise specified. Please see the "FAQ" for additional information.
Rainbow Bridge (proper noun)
This term is not for everyone, but is used often when in reference to a blissful place where a pet animal is imagined to go after passing away. It is thought that this is where he/she eventually will be reunited with their owner. It is said to be a part of heaven where the owner and the pet will never again be separated. The Rainbow Bridge was derived from a thematic poem that was written during the year 1980 that is concentrated on the subject of pet loss.

• Inception of the Furever Keepsakes Collection •
I have lived my life with many types of animals by my side, but one was far more than an animal. Serabi was not only my best friend, but she was a life saver in many ways. Prior to adopting her on January 7, 2015, my best friend who was fostering her at the time noticed that Serabi and I had a connection. Serabi quickly became my ESA and got me through some of the hardest years of my young adult life.
August 18, 2019, Serabi passes away suddenly at the young age of 5. She passed away doing what she knew best, trying to save my life, but I wasn't there needing saving. As I lost my childhood house in a fire, Serabi's paws turned into wings as she ran into the burning house looking for me. At that moment the rescue dog became My Rescue and 'till this day is my guardian angel.
After the loss of Serabi, I was devastated and only found comfort in buying things that included her cremains or things that commemorated her life. I realized how much money people made off my grieving and it honestly made me more upset. I was willing to pay anything because I was grieving, but to capitalize on someones pain was baffling.
Due to being disappointed with quite a few of my purchases, I ended up making my own pendants, keychains, bracelets and even car decals to make myself happy. At that moment I realized that I could bring this happiness to others once I perfected the art. One of my regular customers told me that it would mean more to him for his pieces to be created by someone who truly understood the love one has for their furever family member without capitalizing on
ones pain. I put my heart and love into each of my
pieces, knowing this is a loved one to someone, just
like Serabi was to me.
After Serabi passed, I honored her life by getting a new baby girl, Shenzi. I knew this little pup would make Serabi proud and as months passed, her baby teeth fell out! We were lucky to be able to save some and embody them in resin as well! This was not for everyone, but quite a few people loved the idea enough that I wanted to add it as part of the Furever Keepsake Collection! If moms can keep their baby's teeth, why can't fur-mommies do the same? We all want what we want, and I want to be able to offer services for all pet parents to commorate their furbabies life no matter their stage in life! I want to make honoring keepsakes for our babies weather they are still on this earth or have grown wings and crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
• F.A.Q •
Q: How Do I Pay?
A: Currently I offer payment options through Venmo & PayPal, but also have other options such as CashApp, Zelle, Apple Pay and Google Pay for those that do not have Venmo or PayPal. For these items I request a non-refundable deposit of $60 to cover shipping for the kits to be sent to you which includes pre-paid shipping back. Once I receive the cremains I will await remaining payment prior to production which will include the cost of shipping back same day/overnight via USPS.
Q: How Long does it Take?
A: Once your order is paid for, I will ship out the collection kit. It will then be in your hands to send the kit back as soon as possible. Once I receive the kit back, I will begin production. Production can take anywhere from a day to a couple days to a couple of weeks depending on when the order was placed and how many orders there that week. Usually your order is shipped out within 4 weeks of receiving back the collection kit. Shipments are sent out via USPS same day.
Q: Do I Get a Tracking #?
A: YES! All my packages are shipped out with USPS and receive a tracking number for your records and my records! When you send back your kit with the cremains, I ask for the tracking number as well.
A: The first payment is a non-refundable deposit. Once I receive the cremains, I will await final and remaining payment. If you wish to cancel your order at this point, you may do so with the understanding that the first payment is non-refundable. If you wish to have your loved ones cremains sent back to you, I will ask for payment for the reshipping of the cremains back to you. If you wish to not pay for reshipment, I can promise you that the cremains of your loved ones will be spread in a very nice and respectful place.
Q: How Do I Know I will Like It?
A: I offer 100% Satisfaction! Prior to mailing out the order, I will send you images of the order! Once approved, I will ship it out within the next few days. If you do not approve, or something doesn't sit well with you, we will talk about what changes we can make to get you 100% satisfied! This is your loved one and I want you to love it and be excited to receive your order!
Q: Why are the Prices so High?
A: The main cost is actually seen within the shipping of the kit back to me and the shipping of the finished pieces as they need to be shipped Same Day/Overnight via USPS. I want to be fully transparent and to reflect the final price with no hidden additional payments. It is cheaper to order multiple at the same time so that the order is all in one shipment.
Q: How Do I Know this is My Loved One?
A: I only work on ONE Furever Keepsake at a time. On each kit there is a name that goes with each order. I clean my work area to make sure there is no cross contamination and keep all order information together while working on the order. Once order is complete and packed, I will then move onto the next.
Q: Do you use all the cremains?
A: Often no. I will often send back the remaining cremains with your final order, unless you wish for them to be spread in a peaceful and nice area around me. i ask for a small scoop to be sure I have enough to work with, but will usually only use a little depending on the project.
