"Handmade memorial objects are made by real people, who have experienced life's blessings and challenges alike. They integrate the human connection that binds us all in a life-affirming way,"
Asheville, NC (PRWEB) February 21, 2014
It has been said, more than once, that “sometimes we are only given a few minutes to be with the one we love, and, thousands of hours to spend thinking of them. When a loved one is lost, the memories live on in the heart. Today's memorialization options often feature mass-produced pieces of metal from China. Yet there are also beautiful, hand-crafted memorials that are made with love and care.
Shine On Brightly is an online gallery for artist made cremation urns and memorials. The company is committed to marking our lives with beauty and art. Every person is unique, and so should be the object that memorializes a loved one. The online collection features several outstanding new designs straight from the artists’ studios.
Cremation rates are rising everywhere, even beyond already high projections. There are plenty of memorials and cremation urns on the market today, thanks to the accessibility of technology, online buying, and mass production. Shine On Brightly believes that it’s important to consider the individual spirit and personality of a loved one before making this purchase. This process of reflection about a loved one is healing and informative.
Fabulous Reason # 1: Buying Handmade Memorials Celebrates Human-ness.
The handmade object is made with quality, devotion, time, and care. While the product is being made, the maker is thinking about the piece, possibly remembering his/her own experiences with loss. Just as the homemade apple pie tastes of the love and care with which it is made, so is true with hand-crafted art pieces.
Fabulous Reason #2: The Handmade Object Shares a Story.
The process involved in its creation is a story. The choices about materials and color tell a story. The tone or feeling conveyed by the piece tells a story. Everyone has a story. Why not honor that story through beauty and art?
Fabulous Reason #3: The Handmade Object is Priced Honestly.
Products are not marked up arbitrarily, but are priced based on the creativity, uniqueness, skill, and time that are required to make the piece.
Fabulous Reason #4: Shine On Brightly’s Handmade Memorials Celebrate and More Accurately Express the Style and Personality of a Loved One.
A unique cremation urn or memorial that is designed and crafted by an artisan has character and style. When clients see their purchase for the first time, they are often overwhelmed by the beauty and distinct loveliness of the piece, as compared to a mass-produced urn or memorial that might be seen in any living room or any funeral home.
Fabulous Reason #5: Customers are Respected as Important Clients Who are Seeking the Perfect Piece to Honor the Life of a Loved One.
It is considered an honor to serve someone during their time of grief. It is a vocation to help clients find the most meaningful, personal, and reverent piece to honor a life.
New additions to the Shine On Brightly Collection include the following Ceramic Cremation Urns: “Sacred Dance,” “Floral Dream,” “Tree of Life,” and “Leaves of Peace,” all of which are designed to reflect a connection to nature, connectedness of life, and natural beauty. The “Riverstone” and “Horizon Mist” Ceramic Urns are gorgeous creations with organic finishes that result in natural occurring patterns as reflected in the random beauty of nature.
A complete collection of various sized Bronze Cremation Urns are cast in the ancient form of Lost Wax Method to produce museum quality, fine art castings. They are exquisite in their detail, and are crafted to withstand the test of time - the perfect eternal memorial.
