How Forever Rings uses Their FLUX Laser Cutter to Treasure Your Loved Ones That Have Been Lost
Forever Rings founded by Neil Slack creates rings and pendants to treasure your lost loved ones by combining their ashes with metal jewellery. Read below to find out more about how he creates his work and how he uses his FLUX laser cutter to achieve the final results.
Forever rings produce rings, necklaces, and pendants. The jewellery is fused or filled with cremation ash to give you a unique cherished memorial to a dearly beloved relative, loved one, or a fondly missed pet.
There are many different types of rings with different designs to choose from. The ring itself can be made from solid silver, damascus steel, tungsten carbide, titanium, or stainless steel. You can then choose an opal inlay or a dichrolam inlay in many different colours to make your ring even more special.
You can also choose to have the ashes of your loved ones preserved inside a stainless steel pendant, the pendant is hollow and has a screw top for the ashes to go in. The pendant can then be engraved with a message or image of your choice.
Neil uses his FLUX Beamo laser cutter to engrave the pendants and rings. To engrave the stainless steel he uses the Hybrid Diode add-on which allows Beamo users to engrave on metals and metal like materials.
'Forever rings are a cherished memorial to a dearly beloved relative, loved one, or a fondly missed pet. Ashes into crystal clear resin is unique and exceptional. Each design has its own distinct style, but they are all created with beauty and durability in mind. I believe that such an important piece of jewellery should last for generations. The opals and ash are encapsulated in the ring channel, this process means that they are toughened, and their beauty will last for years to come.
I create each ring individually by hand which means each one has its own characteristics and will be as individual as the life that it represents. All my rings are made under sterile conditions, so as not to cross contaminate any ash that has been sent to me.
I will treat your loved one's ashes with dignity and respect, from the very start of the process to the finished item.'
