Does not have to be a heart (can be teardrop, flat round, spiral etc.). These can be of any color we have available. We make glass keep sake pieces with your loved one's ashes in them. Can be wearable or turned into a pocket heart (heart without a hook). Due to the way that ash has to be shipped there is a flat shipping charge of $63 dollars that covers all shipping to you and from and back to you again. We have the kit we will ship you to put your ashes in with return label.
