About me

Let's create something special to honour the pets and people you love

Hi, I'm Lee.  

I love being creative with our beautiful Aotearoa New Zealand stone and I take great pride in what I do.  I feel especially privileged when I am trusted with creating memorials that provide comfort to people, and help them remember and honour their dearly treasured pets and loved ones. 

Simply put, I am here when you need me.

Because all of my stones are customised in some way, I realise the amount of available options on my website may be overwhelming or confusing to some people, especially if you are grieving.  If this is you, or you’re just a little unsure, please feel welcome to email or call me instead.  We can have a nice chat and I can take care of everything for you.

Feedback and Testimonials

"...a very close friend of mine lost her beautiful cat Milo.  The family had hoped to have him cremated so they could bring his ashes home but due to an error this did not happen.

Thankfully Lee from Hand Carved Rocks was able to work with me to create the perfect memorial gift.  I can't recommend her highly enough."

How long does it take?

Please allow between 5 to 10 business days from acceptance of the final design proof. 

Because there can be a lot of work involved in the design phase and all of my creations are customised (meaning they can't be on-sold), I do kindly require up-front payment.

01

Draft Design

I draft some designs for your review.  The designs are super imposed over the actual stone(s) you will receive, so you know what to expect and what it will look like.

Allow time:  1 day

02

Create Engraving Template

Once approved, I fine tune and convert the design to an engraving template, plot-cut and weed (pick out letters etc from the vinyl). This can be very fiddly for intricate designs.

Allow time: 1 day

03

Prep and Glue

Clean and prepare the stone, cut and glue the vinyl template. Glue drying time can take up to a day when cold.

Allow time: 1 day

04

Engrave, Paint and Cure

I carefully sandblast carve the stone and fine tune with a dremmel if required. I then prime and paint your stone with two coats of your chosen colours. 

Allow time: 1 day

Allow extra paint curing time: 1 day

05

Pack and Send

I clean and giftwrap your stone, carefully package it for safe transport, and send to your nominated address by tracked courier. 

Allow Courier time: 2-3 business days

(Auckland depots can take longer due to volume).

Would you like to know more?

Creating beautiful and meaningful memorials for my clients is extremely important to me.  That's why I offer a lot of options and developed a technique to use the full face and curvature of the stone.
