Life casting is an amazing way to make an exact copy of an external body part, frequently used for children’s hands or feet to keep as a precious memory. Captured permanently in a variety of different compounds, ranging from high quality gypsum to various precious metals.
Our stunning 3d casts are suitable from birth onwards, made using only the finest quality materials available at this time. This ensures your finished casts are of the finest quality available and will last for years to come. We produce our baby hand and foot casts in a variety of different colours and mount them in several different ways. Whether you choose to have your casts as free standing statues or mounted in one of our deluxe handmade frames, the quality and detail is paramount.
We make our handcrafted sterling silver jewellery with love and care, from the finest sterling silver clay we can source. Made from minute, recycled sterling silver particles, blended with an organic binder. This makes the material similar to clay, easily shaped and used for many different purposes. Handprint, footprint or fingerprint impressions are some of the more popular uses. When we have created your unique piece in the clay, we then carefully remove any imperfections. Only then is it ready for the firing process. During the firing process the organic binder burns away, leaving us with an eco-friendly, piece of solid sterling silver jewellery. After firing your bespoke piece, the hand finishing process begins. Our skilled craftsmen use a combination of traditional techniques and modern materials for a mirror finish. All made to our usual exacting standards, focusing on quality and detail.
All of our beautiful handcrafted Sterling Silver jewellery can be personalised with your own fingerprints, handprints and footprints. Don’t be limited to handprints, footprints and fingerprints for your bespoke piece! In the past, we have used children’s drawings, paw prints and even loved ones signatures to create extra special pieces. The prints we use can be from virtually any source to create your unique piece of sterling silver jewellery. These include those taken by funeral homes of your loved ones.
The deluxe foundry cast range is new for 2018, made using ancient techniques dating back to 4200 BC!
We use the lost wax technique to make all of our cast jewellery, making use of the latest materials combined with traditional craftsmanship. We transfer your hand / foot / fingerprints into the wax by hand, using our own top secret methods that have taken years to perfect. Once your prints are transferred, we shape & finish the wax to prepare it for the foundry. Our local foundry casts your wax master into a precious metal of your choice.
When we receive your cast jewellery back from the foundry, we hand finish every piece ready for the hallmarking process. All of our cast jewellery proudly carries our own registered mark and the mark of the London assay office, the oldest office in the country!
Your bespoke cast jewellery is ready for you only when each of these steps has been fully completed.
Keyrings & things
Made using state of the art machinery, our engraved gift range is a great alternative to precious metals. Our engraved pendants, keyrings and gifts are all made from marine grade 316l stainless steel, polished to a mirror finish. Stainless steel has many advantages over other materials as it is very hard wearing, making it perfect for key rings. Hypoallergenic and highly resistant to tarnishing when subjected to chemicals, what more could you ask for.
We can personalise all of our engraved gifts using hand, foot or finger prints, special drawings, including handwritten text, and photographs.
