HeartStones - creating lasting memorials from individually selected riverstones. Each stone is carefully chosen and handpainted with love.
At a time of sadness a HeartStone can bring a touch of joy and beauty for you to keep. The painted stones are fully weather-proof and can be placed under trees, in gardens, as a head-stone on a burial place or simply kept nearby as a special reminder.
HeartStones also make a caring and sensitive gift when you simply want to show you care.
After several years of painting stones for various family pets I began to receive requests from friends and friends-of-friends for memorial stones for their pets. Over time it has become evident that the stones fulfill a need for a tangible reminder of the animals who mean so much to us. The design can be anything from simply a name and date to a floral extravaganza!
When thinking of a name for the stones I was searching for something that reflected feeling as well as the material used - HeartStones perfectly reflects the love and empathy that goes into every stone painted.
I love to hear a little about the animal you're remembering - was it a quirky cat full of mischief, a laid-back dog who loved to laze in the sun, or even a little goldfish who out-grew several tanks over the many years he was a part of your life?
No matter what sort of animal it was they all hold a special place in our hearts.
