Although the pieces are a bit too pricey for my budget, I couldn’t help but drool a bit over the gorgeous, intricate metal work in Lunaireen’s designs.

Tallying $67,000, modern mummification isn’t for everyone…but it’s Available at SUMMUM.
These guys have resurrected (no pun intended) the ancient Egyptian art. You can see a description of the process here.
If you prefer something smaller in size and significantly more sparkly, there is LifeGem.
Love. Life’s single greatest risk. Life’s single greatest reward. Love captures your heart in a second and holds it for eternity. You have experienced a love without equal.
You have had someone truly special in your life and mere words simply will not do.
Your very own LifeGem diamond(s) can be created from the carbon in cremation ashes, a lock of hair, or both. Of course, not only do we turn ashes into diamonds and hair into diamonds, we also have a full line of cremation jewelry, rings, and pendants to accent your beautiful LifeGem cremation diamond.
Or if you’d like your death to involve a space odyssey, you can be shot into the cosmos.
Celestis Memorial Spaceflights place a symbolic portion of cremated remains into Earth orbit, onto the lunar surface, and into deep space. Missions into space that return the cremated remains to Earth are also available. Your loved one will venture into space as part of a real space mission, riding alongside a commercial or scientific satellite.
Celestis offers a number of options (click to enlarge):
Calisto Jewelry has a touching little story behind it, told by the daughter of the creator.
About a year ago, my father (45) came to me and showed me a piece of jewelry he made out of scrap metal. The jewelry junkie inside me felt like my world had just turned upside down.
I was full of surprise, admiration and love for my father who just lost his job but still remained a creative person that never stopped using his hands to bring some beauty and magic to the world.
From that day on we’ve been designing different types of pendants, earrings and bracelets, all inspired by mythology, ancient cultures, Indian tribes, Celtic symbols, etc. My father is a real modern polymath: he draws beautifully with both hands, carves sculptures out of wood, used to be a tattoo artist for a while and now, he makes beautiful jewelry.
There are some really stunning pieces in his collection, all of which are one of a kind (never duplicated), and he takes requests!
I have a shirt with this design, but I absolutely love this Fibonacci Sequence necklace from Boutique Academia (wow, do I want this!).
Alien fans, drop everything and look at this Facehugger Brooch!
I can’t get over how well done this creature is. I wish these were for sale. I would love that resin center piece by itself, but using it as an anatomically correct Alien takes it to a whole other level.
I’ve just been browsing Martha Rotten’s Etsy store, and I came across some interesting jewelry bits.
My favorites (which I hope to add to my collection one day) are the clock hand earrings and necklace.

Naomi Kizhner has designed a parasitic series of jewelry. These creatures of metal and glass (in theory) feed off the energy of those who wear them via pincers that reach through the body into the spine where they draw upon electrical nerve conductivity.
The line will not be going into actual production (I’d say this is fairly obvious, but one never knows in this society. Most of us already encounter plenty of welcome parasitism from mass produced objects).
