This Is Why I Create Sacred Embers

I asked a client how the recipient received her Sacred Embers and this was the response: "She absolutely loved it and cried when she read the did good...she has been wearing it every day and when I gave it to her she couldn't stop rubbing her thumb over the spot where her moms ashes were placed!! Very touching, Thank you again so much for what you do!!"

Megan the Black and White Cocker

Megan was the best friend that you always looked for in life!  She loved to romp in the outside and her inside activities included The Food Network channel and watching about pet rescues.  She was one smart cookie!  Megan only had one bad habit, she LOVED to get into the garbage.

Angels Bringing Others Close

This Sacred Embers has a bit more personal meaning to me.  Don’t get me wrong, all of the Sacred Embers that I create mean so much to me, but this was a bit different.  Someone that my brother had known MANY  years ago (my brother being the “spark” of Sacred Embers), contacted me to create a Sacred Embers for her because her very special kitty, Buddy had  passed away.  It was such a wonderful thing to talk with her because it was another connection to my brother.  I thank  you David, I now have another friend.

My sweet Sapphire gave me 15 years of love.  He was an amazing cat.  I still have his actual sister, Olyvia and the Petunia who thought he was their mom. 

I burried Sapphire where he can still look over our special neighbor Julie and his kitty friend Alica. 

This Sacred Embers was hard to do.  Olyvia, who has been mute her entire life except for an occasional trill now walks around the house meowing..........I think she is calling for her brother. 

This Sacred Embers was created with his hair.  In person, you can see one of the places that the hair was.  The hair leaves different marks because it burns away.  Much different than the ash.

The Heart of the Bullseye Dog Rescue

Angus was her shadow and now he is gone to missed for a lifetime. In honor of Angus.  The protector of babies of all kinds, the quiet teacher.  A beautiful loving dog that was the companion of  a woman with an incredible heart.  Her mission in life: saving dogs and other animals.  Angus was a giant part of that process.  I pray that this ring helps her know that Angus is with her every day with each new soul she is saving.

Sacred Embers was a part of a wedding. An amazing honor!

I received this message from a client that has become a dear friend.  She had me create Sacred Embers for her husband and sister in law with ashes of their father.  This was such an incredible honor!  I never imagined that  a Creative Forces Sacred Embers would take part in a wedding.  My heart is so very full.

"I wanted to share this with you and couldn't wait til I got back home so I'm doing it in the car on our way back from Wenatchee for my sister in laws wedding. My husband gave her away since their dad passed away. When the minister asked "who gives this bride away?" Dan pulled his Sacred Embers from his pocket and said "my dad and I do." I thought you would like that, to know that your creation was such a big part of the wedding."

One more for her family

I presented this Sacred Embers to a brother that got this for his brother.  Their mom had passed away and this is the 4th Sacred Embers created for them.  One was for the father/husband.  I wish each of them peace.

This ring is in honor of Patches.  The sweet baby shown here.  I think when you look at the Sacred Embers and Patches you can see the resemblance.  Patches was a friend to everyone no matter who they were.

Ms. Kitty

Ms. Kitty was their first "child" together....She greeted everyone that walked by on the sidewalk for so many years.  Everyone knew who the big fluffy, blue-eyed sweetie was.  A tragic day took her too early. 

I pray that these Sacred Embers bring peace and keep the many memories alive forever.  When she rests under the lilac tree, hold your pendant......know that she is with you.   

Another Sacred Embers in honor of a Mother

This Sacred Embers is in honor of the same Mother in the post below.  This is for the other son that chose to take care of his brother and Dad before his needs.  It will be good when he has his in his hands.
I wish their family peace.

A question...

Who do you miss that has passed on and is here in spirit?  Share something about that special person or pet.

Another beautiful letter....

"Dear Carolyn, Thank you so much for the beautiful bracelets and amulets. Barry's son Matt and daughter Melissa were deeply touched to have received them and that has helped restore our relationship. When people comment on my beautiful piece of jewelry I love telling them of the significance of it. Including the sand from the beach of Hanalei where we got married made it even more personal to me and is a daily reminder of the love we shared. From the bottom of my heart, Thank You! PK MacLean"

The incredible healing energy of Sacred Embers amazes each time I hear something like this.

A client's thoughts.....

Received from Cheryl Eason: "Hi Carolyn,

I've been wanting to tell you in a personal message how much I love the handmade necklace that you made. My sister, Kristi Fylstra Kirschner couldn't have given be anything better. I love the reaction on peoples faces when they tell me how pretty it is and then I tell them whats in it. I just love thinking about my mom as I'm rubbing the warm glass...."

The reason that Sacred Embers is so important for me and such an honor.

A Mentor of Many

This gentleman was a father, husband, son, many things to so many.  His passion was reading and he loved cats and looked out for those that were not taken care of......human and four legged.  He had special memories of Kaui.  So very missed by every heart that he touched.  He was so humble and did not know the scope of his touch. 

May these bracelets and amulet bring peace when they are touched.......

Morgan is soaring in the heavens

This Sacred Embers window ornament is created with the ashes of my sister's wonderful Peach Mollacan, Morgan.  He was an amazing creature and lived 24 beautiful years with my sister after she rescued him.   The metallic piece that you see is in honor of his love for looking at himself in the mirror.  He LOVED to see himself.  You  and your huge attitude will be missed Morgan.  

A good friend and brother

This Sacred Embers is for a sister.  The ashes are of her dear brother.  He was a real person, contained his imperfections but lived life to the fullest. Fishing was a passion, he loved art and odly Britney Spears!  A young man gone from us too soon.

Life's journey

These Sacred Embers are for a woman that is honoring a time in her life that truly shows it was not her time to leave this earth.  She was a survivor of the Mt. St. Helen's eruption.  One of the pendants contains ashes from that incredible moment. 
Because of her survival of that major event she was placed in the life of Frankie her cat.  He was only around for a short time but their connection in this life is very significant.  The other pendant represents Frankie's coloring and eyes, as does the ring. 

I pray that these bring peace and strength to this woman.

Thisby's Sacred Embers

Thisby was a precious black lab girl and these Sacred Embers are in her honor.  The pendant is for her "sister" and the links are for her "brother".  They will be incorporated into a jute bracelet.  I'm sure that Thisby is romping in the fields and proud that she will be worn by her family.

A collective Sacred Embers

This Sacred Embers is for a very special woman that has lost so very many in her life. This bracelet is to honor all of them collectively. The colors are varied to represent the many personalities and the overlap of the glass is to show the intertwining of their lives with hers.

This is also a different Sacred Embers in that there are no ashes present.  The same ceremony was done, as if there were ashes to honor those many souls that have left her earthly life.  The importance of this Sacred Embers is to Tracey.

Oliver's bracelet

Today I presented this Sacred Embers bracelet to Aaron.  It's for his mom and the ashes are Oliver the Jack Russel.  I hope that she loves it as much as Aaron did.  And when she looks at her wrist she will know that Oliver is still with her. Oliver was described as full of life, exciting, loving and vibrant and the colors are to depict that feel about him.

Sacred Embers Pendants

These were the most difficult Sacred Embers I have ever created.  I didn't realize how much energy I actually get from the information I receive about the person (or pet).  This case I was contacted by Haven of Rest in Gig Harbor, WA and they gave me the name of the gentleman and that the recipients wanted blue Sacred Embers but I didn't have the other pieces of the "puzzle".  (In the future they will get this other information for me).  I think they are beautiful.  
When I delivered them today the staff loved them. I hope that the recipients also love their Sacred Embers & that they find peace when they touch them.

So many new opportunities opening for Sacred Embers.  Creative Forces is my vehicle for bringing Sacred Embers to people.  I need the word of mouth and the feedback from those that have experienced me and know me and can attest to how I feel about Sacred Embers. 

Bringing peace to people is so very incredible.

Maui Nuptials

This Sacred Embers was created for a beautiful woman that was recently married.  Her mom collected some sand from the spot on the beach where the couple stood and exchanged their vows.  The pendant represents the Maui ocean and sunset and the beauty of their union.

In honor of Tao

Yesterday I delivered a Sacred Embers to a woman that is a dog rescue person.  (Someone that I think has the biggest of hearts).  Tao was only 6 months old when he had to be put down because he was deemed to be too timid.  He really just needed a longer adjustment time. 

When she brought me the ashes of Tao the pain was so very apparent.  She brought me a picture to see, he was beautiful.  I created this ring for her and the color of the glass is a reminder of Tao's coloring.  I pray that the ring, when she looks at it on her finger reminds her of the precious work that she does and the love that Tao had because of her.

Email from The Reeces Mom's Daughter

"These are truly spectacular, Carolyn. Thank you so much for putting your energy into remembering my mom in such a special way. How you took a bit of me, a bit of my sister and a lot of my mom and created these in perfect harmony with each of us, I'll never know, but you are truly gifted in what you do. I will forever cherish this."

My heart is so very full to be able to provide this to others.

The mom that loved Reeces Peanut Butter Cups

I created 2 Sacred Embers for a beautiful souled woman that I have come to know.  One pendant was for her sister and one for herself, created with the ashes of their mom.  The mom that loved Reeces Peanut Butter Cups.  Apparently she was quite something that Mary Helen.  She was described as a "bling girl"....she loved color and bling!  She was a mom, a wife & madly in love with her husband, a grandma, a sister and just amazing!  When I presented her with the Sacred Embers pendants I also added some Reeces.......just felt it was part of the package!  

I look forward to hearing the sister's reaction when she receives her Sacred Embers pendant.

Neverending Love

I just presented a woman with her Sacred Embers honoring her husband & best friend. She got this Sacred Embers for her husband's sister for her birthday.

Email received from client


I was sent this email yesterday after Lisa had gotten home from picking up her Sacred Embers.  This is truly why I do Sacred Embers and they mean so very much to me.:   

I truly love my Sacred Embers!! Wayne thought it turned out better than he imagined. He was very pleased. It's not often that he shows enthusiasm towards something but he was excited about how it turned out. Again thank you for making me something so beautiful that keeps my mother close to my heart.

In honor of a mom

Just delivered this Sacred Embers to a woman.....the ashes were of her mother. She opened the box and was so thrilled. She gave me a hug and the tears started. But the smiles were immeasureable!  She told me that her mom used to be a teacher and played the organ for the church.  I hope that this piece brings peace and strength to this very elegant woman.

In honor of a longtime husband

I met with a lovely family that lost their father and husband.  They were from England and listening to Rita talk about her beloved husband was a delight.  It was important to complete her Sacred Embers in time to take with her to a big family event this coming weekend.  Her Sacred Embers "glows from within".  I hope that Rita's pendant brings peace to her in time because the pain she feels is still very evident.   
Rita asked that I hold back some George's ashes so that if anyone else in the family would like a Sacred Embers created I would be able to do so immediately.

I read an incredible book "Visions, Trips, and Crowded Rooms" by David Kessler. It's about deathbed visions.  Below is the book review that I wrote:
"Visions, Trips & Crowded Rooms was so wonderful! And, truly, it makes so much sense that people would come to help you along that journey to the "next place." Such a peaceful thought. The body is merely a vessel for the spirit. The spirit never dies and this book further confirmed for me that "they" are still around after that vessel wears out.

It demonstrates that it's not the medication or pain or hallucinations; it's those souls from before coming to visit and to escort. How lovely for the caregivers and family that are able to recognize that! What an incredible experience! I feel that anyone that works in the end-of-life field, as well as doctors and family that are having to deal with this should read this book. What an insight and probably filled with answers and comfort!

In reading this I cried as if each story were about my family!"

"He was my best friend"

A woman came to me with the ashes of her husband that had passed away just one year ago from cancer.  She said, "He was my best friend".  A friend of hers that is a hospice worker saw my card and brought it to her.  The moment she saw it she realized she had known me years ago and she viewed that as a sign that this is what she was looking for.  Today I presented her beautiful Sacred Embers to her.  She was thrilled and moved and I could tell it was a difficult moment for her.  I pray that her Sacred Embers brings her peace.

Sacred Embers for LouLou

My client brought me the ashes of her sweet dog LouLou that was her friend for a long 12 years.  The pain was so clear through the tears and smiles as she told me about LouLou and showed me pictures of her life.  She will obviously be terribly missed but I feel that her Sacred Embers pendant will bring her peace.  When I presented it to her she thought it was beautiful and I could tell by her warm hug that she was pleased. 

The connections that I am blessed in making when I receive ashes and create and present a Sacred Embers to someone is so amazing.  I truly cannot put it into words so that anyone could really understand what I feel.

Birthday Sacred Embers

When I presented this Sacred Embers to my client I did not know that that was actually the birthday of my client's mother.  What an incredible honor to present this to her on this day.  It was perfect and she loved it and it made it a more special tribute to her mother.  This Sacred Embers included not only ashes from her mom but also a bit of her hair. 

A portion of this sale will go to the Franciscan Hospice since that is who referred her to me. 

When she left I felt so amazing!
