Daybreak Dreams

Jewelry Made From Ashes

Ryan Higgins is the visionary artist and founder of Daybreak Dreams Design. He has blown and shaped glass into awe-inspiring artworks for over twenty-five years. In 2016, Ryan embarked on a deeply moving journey that led to the inception of Daybreak Dreams. Through heartfelt interactions with clients who had experienced profound loss, Ryan discovered a newfound purpose by incorporating cremated remains into his glass creations, infusing them with an extraordinary spirit.
"I genuinely cherish the connections formed between myself, the departed, and their loved ones. It propels me to dedicate the essence of my being to craft each memorial glasswork with the utmost care," Ryan passionately shares.

With a compelling shift in focus toward crafting exquisite cremation jewelry, Ryan Higgins has brought forth an evocative line of pieces under the Daybreak Dreams brand. The website showcases his gorgeous cremation jewelry designs, each a testament to a meaningful harmony of the symbolic significance of remains and fine craftsmanship.

Operating from his cherished homegrown glass-art studio in the historic town of Mullica Hill, NJ, Ryan, along with his wife Abby and their son, strives to bring comfort and joy into the lives of countless people. In addition to his creative endeavors, Ryan serves his community as an adjunct professor of glass art at Salem Community College, generously sharing his expertise and passion with aspiring artists.
