Color & Shimmer

Megan Goldner Designs offers a range of free colors, shimmers, flakes and flecks to personalize your order with.

All you need to do is take a look at what we have and add this to your order details in the notes section when placing your order.  You don’t have to add color, and can choose to keep to the natural color of the inserts. 

You can see the options on our color chart HERE.

How to package your items:

It is really quite easy! 

All packaging information can be found on the MGD Keepsake Jewellery Information sheet downloadable after your purchase. 

If your form got lost in cyber space, your can request another from Megan directly by quoting your order number.

All inclusions MUST be accompanied by this form as it ties your inclusions to your order.

How much do you need to send?

We can work with the least possible amount of cremains, hair or breast milk possible.

General rule to thumb:

Cremains – 1/4 – 1 teaspoon of ash for each item.  Please DO NOT send more than this, unless you have an unusually large order.  If you are unsure, please contact us. 

Breast milk – We will need approximately 15 – 20ml of milk for each item.  10ml is the minimum and 50ml the maximum that can be sent to us.  

We understand this means sometimes only a very small amount will be sent to us, which will be perfectly fine for your order.  The preservation and dehydration process is a lengthy one.  Please allowed the time we need to make sure that we provide you with the best quality item. 

We will not send back any remaining milk, preserved or non preserved and reserve the right to dispose of any unused milk.

Umbilical cord – If you wish to have your umbilical cord inserted in your item/s, please send it to us dried and in ground up powder formWe DO NOT process umbilical cords.

Hair:  A ‘Tuft’ of hair with a minimum length of 1cm. 

Flowers, fabric, sand, rocks or any other organic materials:  We will need enough to cover 1 tablespoons depending on the product.  Please check with us if you are unsure.  All items must be 100% dry before sending it to us.

More information on the above is provided to you in the MGD Keepsake Jewellery Information Sheet with will download to your computer after your order has been placed 

PLEASE NOTE:  All inclusions MUST be 100% dry (with the exclusion of breast milk) when sending it to me.
Please DO NOT send more than the required amount, as it might incur extra courier fees which will be charged to your account.  If you are unsure about the amount to be send, give us a call.

The simple answer is that we want to give you the most cost effective option to get your items to us, or delivered to you.

Sometimes companies will advertise ‘Free Delivery’, when in fact, the shipping fees is added into their product price.  This might not be a bad thing when you look at the price of a single item, but when you purchase multiple items, you are paying multiple hidden shipping costs.  We are MGD feel that this is unfair towards our clients, so we show you upfront what shipping is costing us (we don’t add mark up on shipping) and you.

We hope that this clarifies the shipping costs on our website, but if you have any questions, please feel free to email Megan directly on:

Unfortunately, Megan is also no stranger to the loss of loved ones and beloved pets.  In October 2003 she lost her brother in a tragic car accident and more recently, in June 2017, she lost her dad to a heart attack.

Megan’s thoughts on the Keepsake memorial items she creates:

‘I believe that by creating a tangible Keepsake Jewellery item, I am also creating an intangible experience of having your loved one close to your when you need it most.  By doing what I do, I am helping people heal in the most personal way possible, which in turn, helps to heal me.’

  • positive review  Words cannot express the how happy I am that I found Megan. She made this beautiful keepsake necklace after I lost my darling Scrabble, my 15-year old cat. From the very first moment she made me feel at peace and comfortable, and made the effort to give me a call to explain exactly how the process works. She made my beautiful keepsake necklace so quickly and truly understands what her clients are going through. She has exceeded my expectations and has brought closure to not only me, but to my husband as well. Bonus: she added these cute heart pockets, and we can take our boy with us wherever we go. Megan, thank you SO much. I will eternally be grateful. You are absolutely an angel sent from heaven. ❤️❤️❤️
