Some families prefer the discreet nature of an urn locket. Designs are available that are not discernible from a regular locket and can be worn with just about any style clothing. Plus, if you prefer, the locket can be tucked under clothing and kept out of sight.

Photo Rings: photo rings are also very easy to make. Use your old fashioned rings or broken rings and stick a photo on to the ring according to its shape. Photo rings express you individual well being and your taste in style. You can give your broken or old ring a completely new look with this method.

Most lockets can also be engraved, so you can place significant dates or the loved one’s name directly on the locket urn. Depending on the size, you might even choose a short saying or quote.

There are many Saints who supposedly look over the person who wears a medallion with their image. The cross has long been seen as a weapon against evil (think vampires!).

I found Etsy in September 2008. A friend had told me about it when I was at University and I guess it just stuck in my mind. I remember when I first looked at it.

A custom brass pendant can be made from brass wire. Brass wire can easily be bent and formed into any kind of shape imaginable. As a beginner, you can start with simple designs such as a heart design. You can even give the heart shaped pendant a few curves on the inside and wear it on a chain or beaded necklace. You can even bend brass wire to form initials. Perhaps, you can spell your name or the name of a loved one and wear it on a chain. Making brass pendants at home is affordable and safe because all you need to create shapes is a hammer, a mini torch, diagonal pliers and brass wire with an 18 inch diameter.

If you wish to make clay beads, use a piercing tool to bore holes for stringing. If you have a wooden skewer or long sewing needle, it will be much better.
