Melanie Anderson

Full Circle Memory Beads is a company established by husband and wife artisans, Adam Smith and Melanie Anderson.  They’ve paired the art of lampworking with remembering loved ones through creating what is known as “cremation jewelry” or “mourning jewelry.”  This is done by encasing loved one’s cremated ashes into various glass designs.  This service helps people in their grief journey by giving them a solid piece of their loved one to accompany them. 

Full Circle Memory Beads is located in Armstrong, BC.  The Studio not only serves the Okanagan, but their reach is also world wide through their website and online store.

“Our inspiration stems from the overwhelmingly positive and heartfelt feedback from clients.   This emotional response from customers drove us to begin our research into grief and death, in turn transforming this art form into a business.  As we began to create these Memory Beads, the feedback was of sobering gratitude; for crafting a meaningful piece to help them grieve. They have a beautiful piece of their loved one to physically touch and anchor them in moments of sadness. The process of having a memory bead made has helped clients move forward in their lives without feeling like they are leaving their loved one behind.  Many clients have told us their mourning jewelry has helped them make it through some of the toughest moments of their grief.  To help others in this way, inspires us to continue to grow Full Circle Memory Beads.”
