Shea Stones are created to honor our beautiful boy - Shea Cohn. Since he was a toddler, and right up to the very last load of laundry, Shea collected rocks and stones. We found them all over the house, nooks and crannies, pockets, socks, shelves, everywhere. In remembrance, friends and family have painted thousands of stones and even more have left stones in places that remind them of Shea. Every stone is a memory of Shea - a young man who touched the lives of so many!
Once you have your Shea stones, you can leave them in places that remind you of him. After being placed, you can send us a picture with your location so that we can post the new places our Shea has been brought to! After this, we wait to see who finds the stone next and share on our social media every time a stone is found. We hope to have Shea stones throughout the United States and in as many international locations as possible. With your help, we can!
Follow us on social media! We can be found on Instagram @sheacohnstones and on Facebook at “Shea Stones”. You can also help by spreading the word to your family and friends, or sharing our information on your personal social media pages! If you would like stones to place yourself, please reach out to us and we can send a bag of them to you! Shea stones can also be made by anyone who wants to take the time to create their own designs. We love to see all the interesting places Shea can go!

In order to better visualize the locations throughout the United States as well as internationally that Shea Stones have been placed, we created a 'Pin Traveler's Map' to mark each location as they're placed. Click on the button below to check out the interactive map!
