Power of Personalization: Custom Columbarium Niche Box

 


A local woman near us was looking to have a custom box to fit a Columbarium Niche for her family.  Her brother had passed away years ago in 1980, and his ashes were at rest at a cemetery in California.  This past Christmas, their mother passed away. 

The remaining siblings decided to place mom's ashes with their bother.  They needed a special box to fit the 10" x 5" x 11" space, personalized with both their names, dates, and epitaphs.

We hand-built this ceramic box to fit the space....engraving it exactly as they wished with their family name large and set between their two individual names, and a small cross in the middle.

I got it...it's even more perfect than I imagined!!!!




Becky purchased a guitar urn in memory of her son, Derek.  We worked with her to place 6 different engravings she wanted included on his tribute....his signature, favorite quote and nicknames.

Upon seeing the model we would make for Derek, his father also wanted one for his home.  With kindness, Becky decided to gift his father a guitar urn, and purchased a second memorial for him.

With a sweet gratitude, we loved working to create these special memorials for their son.  We were truly humbled by Becky's thoughtfulness when she left us a glowing Etsy review...actually, prior to us completing the urns! We are forever touched by our experience with Derek's family and the opportunity to honor his beautiful life.

Power of Personalization: A Symbolic Blue Butterfly




For an Australian family, who wanted a special blue butterfly urn to symbolize their dad.

They shared with us butterfly images they liked...including an image of a blue butterfly print that has hung in their home for years.

For their dad, an Interior Designer, they specifically wanted the piece to be a vibrant matte blue, and to include a special handwritten quote he had written to them.

We worked with them to create a design concept of the butterfly's shape and wing pattern. 




 The result...

A Copper Winged Heart in Honor - Menkes Awareness



winged heart urn for ashes



This winged heart urn was handmade at half-depth to hold a smaller portion of ashes. It was created to honor a little boy who passed from this world too soon.  Little Braxton and his family fought a hard fight during his two short years on Earth.

He was afflicted with the condition known as Menkes Disease. It is caused by mutations in the copper transport gene, which is responsible for making a protein that is important for regulating the copper levels in the body. Primarily affecting baby boys, Menkes syndrome is terminal within the first few years of life, and currently there is no cure.

We pray that Braxton's family finds comfort and peace as they honor his spirit and mourn the loss of their little one.

BEYOND AWESOME!!!...Connecting beyond the purchase



When given the opportunity, we love to connect with families.

It is hard to know everything our customers are going through following the death of their loved one. Often, we can only imagine the profound loss they are experiencing. When communicating with customers, we just allow that space to unfold how it needs to for those in mourning. 

Sometimes there is no communication beyond the email order, and that's certainly understandable. However, other times we have the chance to connect and collaborate ideas with the customer....we truly value these opportunities. It touches our hearts deeply when we can learn more about who the YURN is remembering.

Recently, we had a wonderful experience getting to know more about Mark through his wife Diane.  She shared photos and opened up to us about the great health challenges he experienced preceding his death....she told us about their 30 year relationship, his love for music, their travels together, their devotion to fostering hundreds of pets through the years, and how she loved to make him laugh.

She wanted his guitar YURN to be a perfect expression of him and her love for him.  We shared with her the different personalizations we could do to make it a unique and special piece.  We added a handwritten note with his frequent "Love you today" sentiment to her...a line from his favorite song along with his signature...her "Eternal Love" expression for him...his name and dates....and even painted it to match his favorite Martin guitar.

To be of service to her is a blessing to us. These opportunities to touch each others lives in a loving and heartfelt way is what it's all about, and we'll remember this connection always.
