OneWorld Memorials is boosting its reputation as an innovative online cremation urn and memorials retailer with a new line of Tiffany-style stained glass cremation urns and keepsakes offered directly through their website and showroom.
Hand-crafted in the style of legendary stained glass artist Louis Comfort Tiffany, the OneWorld Memorials Stained Glass Collection offers a stunning array of floral and geometric patterns in color palettes ranging from deep iris blues to crisp yellows, fiery reds, and emerald greens, mimicking the natural beauty found in the petals of wildflowers and the plumage of songbirds.
