Cemetery Stone Topper for Christmas...

Each year as we all begin to celebrate the Christmas season I always make wreaths or cemetery stone toppers for our loved ones who are no longer with us. I have always enjoyed making each piece special and this year was no different. I also had many orders for wreaths and stone toppers this year. When I take an order for a cemetery piece I like to ask each client to tell me a little about "their" loved one and what was special to them. I then create a piece that is unique, that also has meaning to the family and I like to add a photo of their loved one to the topper. It may take me a few hours to make a topper but I enjoy each moment of it knowing that this may be the only item that someone can give to a loved one that is no longer here. My customer's are so kind and usually are quite emotional when they come to pick up their topper or wreath. A little bit of me goes into my work and I think they can feel that as well. This topper was made for a mom and a dad, it was made to honor them for the holiday's. The blue used in this piece were the colors the couple had used for their wedding. I really think it came out beautifully...

I love the sparkle of the silver ornaments mixed with the silver poinsettia's blossoms. I also accented this piece with silver berries.

The back of the stone topper is as pretty as the front!
