Default Can I post this here?

So recently my mom passed, my biological mother passed a few years ago and my brother passed in car accident 15 years ago. All were cremated. I'm looking to make a few very special memorial beads for remaining family and was wondering if I could find some unique murrini in shapes of things they liked. Kokopelli, anything archery related, humming bird, Japanese cherry blossom, dragons. Thank you.

So sorry for your loss.
But what a wonderful idea.
I have seen hummingbird murrini on Etsy, it seems the artist Ann Wierbinski makes them.

I think you can find cherry blossoms too.
I found these on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing/6423812..._click=1&frs=1

If you can't find murrini in some of those things, maybe you can find a very small paper punch in the right shape, and cut them out of copper leaf/foil?

You could also request something custom on Murrini & More, A FB group for murrine and glass related bits and pieces.

You could try posting in the Garage Sale saying that you're looking for murrine. Who knows what people have in their stashes!
