A slice of silver in a black cloud.

Recently I’ve had a couple of deaths in the family. (Black cloud)

I’ve been entrusted to make urns for the remains.
It seems that I am trusted with an important job. (Slice of silver)

This will be the fifth, 6th and 7th urn I’ve made.

There will be two urns for the one family member, one for a remembrance and one for the grave site.
He was a navy veteran.
I would like to ask for suggestions from the Navy folk here as to what type of “decoration” to add to celebrate the service they’ve rendered.
The one suggestion I’ve received is an anchor. What color, an example etc and if there was any thing else I should include would be much appreciated.

If you know what his job was in the Navy you could put the rating insignia and/or rank badge on it. As for anchor color I have always liked the darker colors better.

jbartle – I will ask! Thank you!
I have some ebony for the anchor, My sister wanted purpleheart for the box and I have a variety of wood veneers for the other inlays and may even put them in an oval or circle.
