We understand that filling cremation jewelry is not your typical every day task. Our cremation jewelry filling instructions were designed to help guide you through the steps of adding the cremated ashes to your cremation jewelry in a manner with ease and efficiency.
Create a workspace that is free of clutter and other materials such as a kitchen table. Place a towel or soft cloth on top of the work area to prevent scratching the cremation jewelry while filling.
Cremation jewelry has either a screw cap or a bail cap that protects the cremated ashes inside the jewelry. The screw cap is removed using a small screw driver (included where applicable). The bail cap can be removed by twisting with your fingers. Place the threaded screw off to the side.
Place the tip of the included funnel into the opening of the cremation jewelry. Scoop a small amount of ashes using a utensil of personal choosing such as a plastic spoon or you can use the funnel to scoop the ashes. Using the filling sticks, gently guide the ashes through the neck of the funnel into the inner cavity of the urn jewelry. Be careful not to overfill the inner cavity as this will result in the screw not sitting flush on the cremation jewelry.
Insert the screw into the opening of the inner cavity and tighten to make sure that the screw sits flush with the surface of the jewelry. If the cremation jewelry has been overfilled, simply remove the screw and tap some of the ashes back into the container or urn. Then reinsert the screw to ensure that the appropriate amount of ashes has been removed to allow the screw to sit flush on the surface of the cremation jewelry.
Back the screw out of the opening without removing. A toothpick or the filling sticks can be used to apply a very thin layer (approximately ½ of a drop) of adhesive onto the threads of the screw. Once the adhesive has been applied, reinsert the screw into the opening and twist to tighten. Wipe away any excess sealant immediately after tightening to prevent the sealant from drying on the surface of the urn jewelry.
