Carbon Copies

I thought LifeGem was weird...from Nadine Jarvis, "pencils made from the carbon of human remains. 240 pencils can be made from an average body of ash - a lifetime supply of pencils for those left behind." Once you get over the weird factor, it is kinda a romantic idea...Yikes. Speaking of Nadine Jarivs, I think she helped me figure out what I want done with my ashes. This ceramic urn has a lifespan of 1-3 years. The thread gradually degrades causing the urn to drop, and smash as it hits the ground. I would definitely need a really tacky, 60's floral pattern ceramic urn. My friends and family can make necklaces out of the pieces. Ohh, genius! (sorry, a little morbid...)
