People often like to make memorials to loved ones that have died. In ancient times, they made huge statues. In modern times, some people like to get tattoos or start charities in a loved one’s name. A more affordable option is ash jewelry, also called cremation jewelry. This keeps part of the ashes, or a lock of hair, or flower from the funeral, always close at hand.
Yahoo Finance looks at what it’s like to create cremation jewelry for a living.
Making cremation jewelry is a growing business since more people than ever are opting to get cremations over burials. Getting a beautiful piece of jewelry incorporating a loved one’s ashes or other mementos, helps a mourner bring closure. Creating ash jewelry is not only a business that demands long hours, but it helps bring beauty and comfort into customers’ lives.
Designing cremation jewelry is a collaborative effort between the artist and the mourner. The artist suggests designs such as placing a heart made of the ashes in a multi-colored glass dove, or the mourner can commission a specific design, such as the shape of the deceased’s favorite animal. Jewelry can be bracelets, brooches, or rings, but most often the customer chooses a necklace.
There are a lot of reasons to need to work with a storage company of some kind. Maybe you’re in the middle of a life transition and need to store some of your belongings. Maybe you’re a business owner in the middle of downsizing or expanding your business. No matter why you need a storage company, you need that company to be convenient, and no storage option is more convenient than portable self storage.
In the video here, the owner of a portable storage company answers some of the most frequently asked questions he hears from potential customers. If you’re unsure about the way portable self storage works or want to know just about anything about portable storage units, this is a great video to watch.
For example, he talks about the ways portable storage units can help people. They can be moved full or empty, so you don’t have to worry about the items in your storage unit if you’re planning a big move — you can just leave them right where they are or pack even more items into the unit before moving.
He also discusses item security. Although portable units don’t have some of the security features of traditional self-storage units, they are still secure. They lock securely and are made of steel.
If you’re looking for an experimental anti aging therapy, then gene therapy may be the next up and coming treatment to take a look at. This form of medicine is changing the way that we treat disease. But could it prove a viable anti aging treatment for those looking to get a few years back? Let’s take a look.
A brand new clinical trial is aiming to test whether or not gene therapy can reverse aging in any way. The therapy itself, which is happening in Colombia, claims that it can lengthen human telomeres, which are one of the primary factors in aging. This therapy considers aging as a terminal disease, which means clinical trials are happening like they would for any experimental treatment attempting to eliminate or treat a known disease.
The only barrier is that participating in the trial costs a whopping $1 million. Gene therapy may be the next big treatment in terms of preventing or reversing aging, but it’s certainly not the most cost-effective one right now. Further research may prove that this is an accessible treatment for people from all walks of life.
