Shape carved flowers, leaves and ivy not only look great with shell rock borders, but they also look nice on colored granites. In fact, if you look closely at the monuments on our website or on our display, you will notice that several of them feature beautiful shape carving that truly seems to bring the greenery to life.
This single monument features a shell rock broder surrounding the polished arrowhead shape. While the shell rock border does dress the arrowhead down a little, it also seems to add an element of texture and beauty to the shape. What a perfect monument for someone who loved archiology, Native American history or the outdoors.
I hope that you have found this post helpful in coming up with memorial ideas. As you can see, there are many simple but elegant components you may add to a granite memorial to truly make it different.
If you would like to begin designing a memorial or have some ideas that you would like to share, please contact Emerson Monument Company and a member of our staff will be glad to visit with you.
