4 Reasons Not to Buy My Keepsake Jewellery

4 Reasons Not to Buy My Keepsake Jewellery

4 Reasons You Might NOT Buy Jewellery from Impressive Memories

Sounds a bit odd doesn’t it? Usually, a business would try to convince you that you simply HAD to buy their product…bombard you with adverts and reasons why you should BUY NOW…

And here’s me telling you 4 reasons why NOT to buy from me…

Have I gone completely nuts?

But what if you maybe shouldn’t buy keepsake jewellery from Impressive Memories?
Zig Ziglar said “Every sale has five basic obstacles
  1. No Need
  2. No Money
  3. No Hurry
  4. No Desire
  5. No Trust

Why might I not be the best fit for you?

#1 “I don’t need what you’re selling”

The jewellery I make is created for you with YOUR memory, YOUR moment in time. It captures an emotion and has way more sentimental value than monetary. The necklace I make a mum with her baby daughter’s handprint will be priceless and precious to her.

There won’t be a designer label there…If you like things with labels then my jewellery is not for you.

Maybe you need an instant purchase? I can’t do that either… I don’t have duplicate stock in lots of different shapes and sizes, and I do need time to make your piece. All my jewellery is made by hand and only made by me…I’m not Elizabeth Duke!

#2 “I can’t afford it”

There are cheaper alternatives out there. You could jump on eBay and look for something which looks quite similar – on the surface – and it will cost less…initially.

I don’t sell cheaper items because I value the item I am making for you, just as much as you do. I want your jewellery to last and I want it to bring years of memories.

Could I make my jewellery cheaper?

  • I could not have invested in a kiln – just given it a quick blast on the gas stove or a blow torch. Yup, you could make a charm that way…plenty of sellers do this (and plenty buyers don’t know this).
  • I could make you a tiny charm with much less silver.
  • I could not solder the jump ring that will hold your jewellery to your necklace. Chances are it would fall off in no time at all, and be lost forever…
  • I didn’t need to buy machinery to polish and harden your piece before you took it home, but because I did – your piece will be significantly stronger for it too.
If you’re looking for the cheapest option, not the best value option – I’m not the person to make jewellery for you.

Is there a better solution?

There are ways to make everything more affordable and jewellery is no exception.

Gift Vouchers

If you would like jewellery made but just don’t have the budget for it right now…there are alternative ways to manage this. Maybe you have a birthday soon and friends and family might like to buy you a gift voucher to put towards buying something you’d REALLY like. 

Only buy the kit just now, not the jewellery

If you would like to invest in capturing your memory but you just cannot justify the expense…right now…you could just buy the kit (for fingerprints). You can capture the moment or the memory now and keep it safe for as long as you want to. When the time is right for you, you have the memories and you can have your jewellery created.

#3 “I’m not ready to make that decision right now”

Zig Ziglar calls this is the stage that you have no hurry or desire to buy – right now.

Buying jewellery isn’t a top priority – I get it!

We’re all so busy. If you’re like me you probably know it is something you’d love to do, but day-to-day ‘stuff’ gets in the way!!

Maybe these moments don’t feel too precious right now. When you have a newborn baby you’re so enthralled to sit and watch your new little miracle that you forget this moment passes in a flash. But it’s too late once the moment has gone. Milestone after milestone your child grows and changes…will you remember just how tiny those hands and feet were in years to come?

People are not in our lives forever.

Whether we choose to forget this or don’t want to accept it…none of us are here forever and what if the day comes and you regret not holding onto a fingerprint of a loved one?

Maybe it’s too painful or emotional to face some situations? I get that…it can be very tough.

Maybe you’re worried about lifting the phone and trying to ask for help on how to capture a memory?

“What if I cry?” Chances are I will cry with you!! I always have a big box of tissues to hand…you’d be amazed how many tears I see on a daily basis. (Just to confirm…you can cry and be happy too!! I don’t just have miserable customers!!! Promise)

But if it’s easier you’re welcome to talk to me by email, or text or on social…go for it!  All the jewellery I make can be ordered online, distance is not an issue (even outwith the UK)…if you don’t fancy being here face-to-face, its no problem at all. I am more than happy to arrange everything by post.

If it doesn’t feel emotionally right for you to do this, if you’re ok letting these moments fade to memories, then you probably shouldn’t be ordering from Impressive Memories.

4.“I don’t trust you…yet”

That’s understandable – why should you? Why should you trust me with your money or your memories? Well, here are 8 things I’ve done to try and help.

  1. I’ve been in business since January 2011, and plan to be around for many more.
  2. I have about 40 five star reviews on Google added in 2018. I also have a one-star review from someone who’s never set foot in my business or had any contact with my business, but he felt the need to be nasty…hmmm I wonder why? Ah well…the others are genuine.
  3. In 2016 I was voted by my customers as ‘Fife’s Best Home Based Business’ and got through to the national finals with http://www.scotlandsbusinessawards.co.uk . In 2019 I was a finalist in the Best Memorial Company in the Scottish Funeral Awards too. 
  4. My website is built on a site that I have made as secure as I can. In the address bar, you’ll see an https address with a little green padlock – The ‘S’ at the end of HTTPS stands for ‘Secure’. It means all communications between your browser and my website are encrypted (that means your details are safe).
  5. There are a few other things I do with my website to keep it safe and secure…it doesn’t cost a huge amount more…a few hundred pounds invested in MY website each year means that YOU can feel safe making a purchase. I think it’s worth paying it.
  6. I use PayPal to process your web transactions. Most of us know and trust PayPal.
  7. My invoicing is done online through XERO and using STRIPE. Stripe is a similar company to PayPal but not quite so well known (yet).
  8. I accept all major cards for payment, I don’t ask customers to pay using cash – you’re very welcome to use cash, but if you make a card payment you have more security. All purchases on payments cards are recorded, with a paper trail. This safety feature comes in handy when you need to dispute or cease an unauthorised transaction. I would hope you would never need or want to raise a dispute, but should the need arise, you can.
If you still feel there’s a risk, then maybe Impressive Memories isn’t right for you.

Final Thoughts

Not everybody needs what I make and maybe you don’t either. I don’t want every customer to come to me…but I do want the right customers to come to me. When you leave with the item I make you I want you to be 100% happy with it, I want you to love it and tell others that you love it too.

If you think I AM a good fit for you…I’d love to help you further…

Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2020

Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2020

What do you buy your mum on Mother’s Day?

Flowers? Always a favourite, but they are expensive and last only a few days…Chocolates? They are always welcome, but somehow just don’t feel ‘enough’. Wine is also welcomed, but it lasts even less time than the chocolates, let alone the flowers!!

Would you like a gift that is totally unique, handmade for mum, inspired by the very person (or persons) who made her a mum in the first place?

Maybe you are a mum yourself and you’d like to ‘help’ someone choose the right gift for you – share this with them and start hinting!

You’re in the right place!

Every mum is different and she deserves a present as unique as she is. Mums aren’t mass produced, and the gift that she’s given on the 22nd March 2020 shouldn’t be either.

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2020 2
There is something for everyone.  Well, everyone that’s Impressive enough!
Mother's Day Gift Guide 2020 3

1. Gifts From £15

Want to make an impression but not burst the bank?

Book an appointment to come along and get creative! Bring along some little hands and feet and create a gift for Mum, Gran, Aunty…YOURSELF.  No mess and stress of visiting a busy ceramic cafe. I’m here to help, guide, inspire you to create something that’s simply beautiful. I can give as much or as little to help as you wish.

Please book before Friday 6th of March for Clay Impressions, of Friday 14th of March for ceramic mugs/plates/clocks to guarantee your item is ready to collect in time for Mother’s Day.

2. Handmade Jewellery

Handmade jewellery can be made for Impressive Mums.  Distance is not a problem…all jewellery can be made by posting out a kit for you to take the prints for me. If you live nearby you can book an appointment and I can take them for you.

Please book an appointment before 10th March to guarantee your item is ready to collect in time for Mother’s Day.

Online/web orders must be placed prior to this, and all elements returned to me by the 10th March to guarantee your item is ready to be posted/collected in time for Mother’s Day.

3. Golden Fingerprint Jewellery

If Mum prefers a golden charm to silver, this could be perfect!

  • Costs almost the same as silver.
  • Golden Moments are not a precious metal
  • Charms do not need Hallmarked.
  • They are a solid golden metal alloy NOT PLATED and will not wear off
  • All metals will tarnish – this will too – but a cleaning cloth and a gentle wipe will bring it back to its shining glory.
  • I’ll give you a free cleaning cloth!
  • It is a very robust and strong metal – it will not scratch or damage easily.
  • Golden Moments are better suited to more defined fingerprints – so toddlers through to adults, and pets too! Miniprints will suit better for babies.

6. Miniaturised Charms of YOUR child

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2020 24

Are you looking for a truly Impressive gift?

These solid Sterling Silver charms are miniaturised from your child’s hand and foot!! How awesome is that?

The price might look high, but if you investigate this style of jewellery you will find that only a handful of people in the UK can offer these, and nobody (that I am aware of) is doing them for as good a price!

These charms are made entirely by myself – I have developed my own technique that is different to the rest of the UK market.

This doesn’t mean they are only limited to my local clients because I am building a network of lifecasters who will be on hand to help create the initial lifecasts. (I need the lifecast as the first stage in creating these).

Find out more about these Impressive ‘Tiny Treasures’…with split payments, they are much more affordable than you may think, and such a talking point!

Got a question?

I’m sure you have lots of questions. Here are a few I’ve been asked recently…(click on the question to see the answer). If you’d like to know anything – just ask!

I live too far away - can I order anything?

Yes, all jewellery can be made by posting out a kit for you to take the initial prints.  You may even have hand/footprints already that I can use…best to get in touch and ask.  Call me on 07837800353 or email [email protected] 

My budget is under £25 can you help?

Yes, I have lots of ceramic options for you to create in this budget.  Take a look…

I am a mum of many...can jewellery combine more than one child?

Yes, I have lots of jewellery designs that can show off your impressive children no matter how many you have!

Do you have any gift ideas for 'mum-to-be'?

Gift Vouchers are a perfect idea! Let the new parents decide what they’d like to create once their little bundle arrives.

I've left it too late - HELP?

It’s never too late!! Have you seen my NEW GIFT EXPERIENCES? They are available 24/7 and fully downloadable gift option!

Or why not order an item and have the print/impression kit ready to take the impressions on Mother’s Day – with the Impressive Mum, then have your piece made. You waited 9 months for a baby, you can wait a fortnight for your jewellery 😉

I'm a mum to an angel, can I have anything made?

If you have ink prints or hand/footprints I can turn these into jewellery for you. The originals will come to no harm.  I also make memorial keepsakes from locks of hair and cremation ashes too.

Drop me an email if you’d like me to help [email protected]  or call for a chat on 07837800353.

My mum has passed away, could I remember her on Mother's Day?

Take a look at my Memorial & Bereavement Memories Page. Also HERE is another blog with suggestions too – and see if you’d like to remember your mum with any of these ideas. Drop me an email if you’d like me to help [email protected]  or call for a chat on 07837800353.

Mother's Day - 22nd March 2020

Back to School…

Back to School…

Who’s heading off to school?

Back to School... 26

Erin starting P1 – ten years ago xxx

  • Are you relieved to wave them off back to wonderful school life?
  • Maybe you’ll be looking forward to a moment of peace and not hearing “MUUUUM” repeatedly?
  • Have you started threatening that bedtime will be becoming earlier yet?
  • Does the prospect of going food shopping alone actually sound quite appealing?

Starting School…

Waaaaahhh…The moment feared by many! The BIG day arrives – THEY’RE STARTING SCHOOL!

You feel excited and proud that they are growing up, but sad to watch them becoming more independent and not needing us so much.  Realising how precious those first few years are and wanting them to slow down!!

  • Is your little person skipping off down the school path, beginning their journey into education?
  • Have you been reminiscing and wondering where the hell the last 4 years have gone to?
  • Have you ironed name labels onto every piece of fabric? (Did you see the hack to use your hair straighteners instead of the iron? Personally, I’d rather break my iron than my GHD’s…)

Are you lying awake at 3am overthinking?

  • What if he doesn’t make friends?
  • What if she gets bullied?
  • What if they can’t manage the work?
  • What if they cry when I go?

Stop Worrying!

Be impressively proud that you have created an independent little sponge who is ready to soak up all the new learning and experiences that school will bring them.  Capture this milestone, remember with satisfaction that YOU created this fabulous little human who is now stepping up, and stepping out into their journey.  What better reward could you ask for than knowing you helped them begin their expedition?

Mums know how hard it is to let go of that little hand, and teachers do too. That little hand that you’ve nurtured and watch grow. You held it tight and kept them safe, and now it’s time to let it go…just a tiny bit…

handsSo STOP WORRYING about them, because they will be absolutely, perfectly happy…they will have a coat hook AND a tray…with THEIR name on it.  Your little sponge will be safe, cared for, looked after, guided, nurtured and ready to flourish – Why? Because YOU gave them everything they needed – go you!!

Celebrate the impressive memories of this special day.

Starting school is one of life’s very Impressive Memories.

Letting go of that little hand at the school gate. Trusting your most precious possession to skip off along the path, on their new adventure.That little hand that you’ve held so tightly, has grown, and keeps on growing. Where do the years go??? Your little person has reached ANOTHER milestone.

Here at Impressive Memories we prefer to hold on to these moments. Don’t let them fade to a memory…treasure them! It’s time to reward yourself!


Back to School... 31

Come and Paint a Memory!

Make an impressive memory of that little hand on a beautiful ceramic mug. Treasure the moment and remember how much this little hand has grown, and how much more growing it has ahead of it! A great way to remember this milestone moment.

Why not make one for an Impressive Granny too?

Message me, comment or call to find out more…

Have those cameras poised with stiff new uniforms (with plenty growing room) and smell the whiff of new gym shoes in the air.

Oh, and guess what?…there’s only 38 school days until the October Holidays! YAY!!

How to clean your silver jewellery: Top 3 tips

How to clean your silver jewellery: Top 3 tips

How to clean your silver jewellery: Top 3 tips

When you first buy silver keepsake jewellery it will be super shiny and beautifully perfect.

  • Wouldn’t it be great if it stayed that way forever?

Trouble is…you also want to wear and enjoy your jewellery – and that means it’s gonna get grubby!

Here are 3 ways I recommend (and 9 that I don’t!!) to look after your keepsake jewellery – to keep it as clean and as shiny as the day you bought it.

How to clean your silver jewellery: Top 3 tips 32

#1 Silver Polishing Cloth

The quickest and easiest way to keep things shiny is using a silver cleaning cloth. A silver cleaning cloth is impregnated with an anti-tarnish product. This will remove surface dirt, makeup and grime. Just rub your jewellery and watch it come back to life.

You can do this every day if you like…I do!! A cleaning cloth only costs a few pounds and lasts for years. I would recommend ‘Town Talk’. You can buy it online or from Argos.

How to clean your silver jewellery: Top 3 tips 33

#2 Liquid Dip Cleaner

This little pot of liquid is good at cleaning charms but it is even better for intricate jewellery – like chains and necklace links. The liquid can access all the places that get grubby. Be prepared for a nasty smell of sulphur and rotten eggs…this will stink if your jewellery is tarnished…but it works well. 

Don’t leave jewellery in the solution or it will damage it. Just dip it in, then rinse it in clean water. Also, need to be careful not to dip certain metals and stones – read the instructions carefully!

If you have mini print jewellery (jewellery with miniature prints of your child’s hands and feet) where the prints have been made black, this is done by oxidising the silver. If you dip it in this solution it can lift off the black oxidised patina. Don’t panic! It can be redone.

How to clean your silver jewellery: Top 3 tips 34

#3 Ultrasonic Cleaner

  1. Ultrasonic Cleaner £30 – £300

With an ultrasonic cleaner, you submerge your jewellery in a tank with liquid, which is then hit with high-frequency sound waves. The sound waves create bubbles and a gentle but powerful cleaning action in the fluid that cleans all surfaces of the jewellery.

Ultrasonic cleaners are great but you need to be careful if you clean jewellery with stones as it can dislodge them! This is the machine I use and it costs about £30, a bottle of the cleaning solution is about £10. (Some ultrasonic cleaners can cost hundreds of pounds).


The following 9 methods involve weird household things that MIGHT work  –  I have no idea and I don’t plan to stick my precious jewellery in any of these!! What do you think?

How to clean your silver jewellery: Top 3 tips 35

#4 Tin Foil

Bring one litre of water, one tablespoon of baking soda, and one piece of tin foil to the boil. Drop silverware in the pot for 10 seconds (longer if it’s very tarnished), then remove…

How to clean your silver jewellery: Top 3 tips 36

#5 Laundry Powder

Line a medium-sized bowl with tin foil and fill it with hot water. Mix in one tablespoon of powdered laundry detergent, then soak your silver for one minute. Rinse with clean water, and air-dry.

How to clean your silver jewellery: Top 3 tips 37

#6 Ketchup

Squirt a small amount on a paper towel, and rub gently over the tarnished areas. If your silver isn’t getting shinier, let it sit in the ketchup for 15 minutes, then rub with a soft cloth and rinse clean.

How to clean your silver jewellery: Top 3 tips 38

#7 Cornstarch

Make a paste of cornstarch & water and apply with a damp cloth, let dry, then rub off with something very mildly abrasive, like cheesecloth or a rough towel.

How to clean your silver jewellery: Top 3 tips 39

#8 Hand Sanitizer

Squirt a few drops on a damp cloth and watch the shine appear…and the germs disappear! 2020 edit…the year hand sanitizer became our best friend – please do not leave this on the surface of your jewellery as it will damage/corrode it long term.

How to clean your silver jewellery: Top 3 tips 40

#9 Fizzy water with lemon and lime

Leave your jewellery in a glass of fizzy water and lemon and lime for about an hour…(best not to drink it afterwards!)

How to clean your silver jewellery: Top 3 tips 41

#10 Toothpaste

Rub a small amount on a cloth and watch the shine return.

How to clean your silver jewellery: Top 3 tips 42

#11 Window Cleaner

For the thrill seekers…personally it seems a bit extreme to hang out of windows just to clean your jewellery…but each to their own.

Alternatively, you could give your jewellery a skoosh of good ol’ Mr Muscle and that should clean up your silver too…and needs less danger money.

How to clean your silver jewellery: Top 3 tips 43

#11 Vinegar

Is there anything vinegar CAN’T do???

Soak it in 1/2 cup white vinegar mixed with 2 tablespoons of baking soda for two to three hours. Rinse under cold water, and dry thoroughly.

So there you go! No excuses for mucky jewellery…I’d definitely stick to option 1, 2 or 3 – but the choice is yours.
Let me know how you keep your keepsake jewellery in tip-top condition. Comment below…

If you don’t comment I’ll suspect you’re one of the grubby ones…

Wedding Day Memories: 6 ideas to capture

Wedding Day Memories: 6 ideas to capture

Would you like to create tangible memories of your wedding?

Weddings – big or small, traditional or wacky, lavishly extravagant or cosy & intimate – it is a day to be remembered. However you choose to celebrate, your wedding day should be filled with Impressive Memories.

With months (possibly years) of planning, and an enormous amount of work and effort you think you have covered every possible idea to make your day absolutely perfect. No doubt you’ve spent evenings knee deep in Pinterest boards, dreaming of your perfect day.

Because let’s face it…none of us want our day to be bland or predictable. Nobody wants peach silk bridesmaids, do they? Everyone wants to have the wow factor and for their day to be remembered as being spectacular.

Fear not!! I can help you create 6 ideas that absolutely nobody else can replicate. Guaranteed to be as unique as the couple who are tying the knot…

Here are 6 personalised memories for you to incorporate into your wedding day celebrations.

#1 Bride & Groom Hand Cast

Wedding Day Memories: 6 ideas to capture 44

To have and to hold 

Why not create a completely personal work of art with a 3d hand cast incorporating those all-important wedding rings? You can organise this yourself or why not suggest that friends and family contribute to buy you this as a totally unique wedding gift?

Hand casting for couples starts from £195. A little bit more if you’d like to include ornate rings with stone settings.

This beautiful example was created by a couple who were first married in Serbia (the grooms home), then had a second wedding here in Fife (the brides home). The newlyweds visited my studio (between weddings) and the plan was for the cast to be hand delivered, by the father of the bride, on his next journey to Serbia.

#2 Wedding Cufflinks for the Groom

From this day forward

What more could a Groom ask for on his wedding day than to wear personalised cufflinks created from his very own son or daughter? 

Travis made these for his Daddy as a surprise gift on the morning of his mummy and daddy’s wedding day. It was quick, clean and simple for Travis to pop to my studio and have his prints taken, but means the absolute world to his parents to have their son at their wedding. Now his little hand and footprints are captured for a lifetime at the moment of such an impressive event.

I decided to get my husband a gift for our wedding day, personalised cufflinks with my son’s hand and footprint, however, I had left it a bit late for timing but Jen made sure they would be ready on time! Her studio is beautiful! I almost cried each time I received my items from her. I cannot thank her enough and urge people to have a look on her site! She is amazing at what she does, I can’t wait to be back in her studio again one day!

#3 Your Wedding Dress on a Silver Pandora Charm

Wedding Day Memories: 6 ideas to capture 48

For better, for worse

Would you like to wear your wedding dress every day? Well, you can’t…because you’d look like an idiot. Imagine going on the school run wearing your wedding dress? Nipping around the supermarket? It’s not gonna happen is it?

But you could have a silver charm made with an impression of your wedding dress. You could wear it on your Pandora bracelet, on a pendant or maybe a ring? Then you COULD wear it everyday…impressive!

These aren’t in my online shop at the moment, drop me a message and I’ll help you order this charm today.

#4 Your Wedding Bouquet in a handmade silver charm

For richer, for poorer

Flowers make your wedding day bloom…ing lovely! I adore fresh flowers and, for me, they are a hugely important part any special occasion. Sadly though, flowers don’t last long – but jewellery can last a lifetime.

Do you have a favourite flower? My personal favourite flower is a lily, which is why I adore making silver fingerprint lilies.

Created from a love heart of silver and gently rolled into a lily, they have the fingerprint impression of a loved one tucked inside. It could be a guest who lived too far away and was unable to attend your wedding. Or a loved one no longer with us. Whoever you choose.

I recently made a pair of fingerprint lily earrings for a lovely lady. She was delighted with them and I think they will be a popular choice for everyone.

A truly professional job by a very caring lady. I can’t thank her enough for all her help during a very difficult time for me. I am absolutely delighted with my gorgeous items, they are unique and stunning. I definitely recommend entrusting Jen with your priceless memories. She will give you all the help and advice you want.

#5 Wedding Guest Fingerprint Plate

Wedding Day Memories: 6 ideas to capture 52

In sickness and in health

When you’re planning a wedding you also have to plan who will share your special day.

It might be that some guests are ill and don’t manage to spend the day with you as they’d planned. They could still be part of capturing a memory by having them create a fingerprint tree of family and friends.

They will love being part of your wedding family tree!

Each guest can add a leaf with their fingerprint and even leave a signature or a message for you both.

#6 Honouring a deceased loved one at your wedding

Until death do us part.

Your wedding day is a celebration surrounded by loved ones, sadly we may have relatives and friends who’ve passed away and can’t be there for your big day. That doesn’t mean they can’t still be part of your celebration – there are a few ways you can incorporate them into your special occasion.

I offer a range of jewellery that incorporates locks of hair, cremation ashes, fingerprints and handwriting and signatures. You can find out more about Memorial memories in a blog that I wrote here.


These are just 6 ideas to let you see how to make your wedding as unique as you are.

If you have a question about any of the items shown here or you’re left wondering…

Who can help bring my ideas to reality?

The answer is…

“I do”

And you don’t even need to get down on one knee to ask me.

Best Wishes

Online Shop: What’s changed and why?

Online Shop: What's changed and why?

I’ve been having a spring clean! I’d had so many people asking where to find this, that and the other and my answer was ‘that’s in my online shop’… the only problem was…finding it!

I have spent this week dusting and hoovering all the categories, polishing the photos and making everything much brighter, cheerier and easier to use – I hope you agree.

Here’s a quick video to show you what I’ve been up to…

I’ve now arranged the items into categories that are customer friendly…

  • Fingerprint Jewellery
  • Hand & Footprint Jewellery
  • Memorial Jewellery
  • Pet Inspired Jewellery

These are the four most visited categories.

Then I’ve added new sections for ‘Locks of Hair‘ jewellery and Gift Ideas for mums and one for dads too.

If you’d like a necklace or bracelet to go with your impressive jewellery they’re all there, as well as spare kits and gift vouchers too.

What if you don’t know what you’re looking for?

Maybe you need some inspiration to find a gift, or just enjoy browsing lots of new ideas? You can do that too…all the items are listed as well as being in their categories…

How do I get back to the main shop page?

The easiest method is to go back to the original ‘Online Shop’ button at the top of the page.

What’s New?

I’ve added two new locket designs – one encapsulates your elements on the outside and the other has then tucked safely inside. A new engraving option has also been added.

There’s a new range of pendant charms. More sizes will be added soon but this dinky charm is so easy to wear. Very impressive.

A new item for the Dads is the tie pin. Great for special occasions where maybe a lost one can’t be with you on a special day, but their memory can.

All can hold locks of hair, cremation ashes or a maybe a piece of pet fur.

Signature & Handwritten Charms

Finally added my Signature and Handwriting charms online too. These charms are a great choice to capture a memory of a loved one…their very own message written just for you.

Coming Soon!

There’s more to come…Keep an eye out for two new earring designs…I can’t wait to add these to the shop too…so pretty.

“Do it, you never know when you need some reassurance, or during a panic attack if you feel you need them, they can be there in a way.”

“I wear mine every day without fail, and I can’t imagine not wearing it now. It keeps me sane a lot of days and it helps more than I thought a little locket ever could ❤️”

hand writing signature in silver
Made in memory of Miquela’s Dad…

“There are no words to describe how my jewellery makes me feel, all I know is when I feel down or lost I hold onto it knowing that it’s a part of my Dad. I’d say it gives me a lot of comfort on the days I struggle without him to be able to see his own handwriting with the words ‘lots of love dad’ knowing how much he did love me makes me smile xx”

“I’d definitely recommend memorial jewellery. I’d say go for it you will be surprised how much comfort one small bit jewellery can help with the grieving process of losing a loved one. And to know you can carry them with you where ever you go in life while you’re making new impressive memories they will be with you always x”

“I’d like to thank Jen for her amazing work. Without her I wouldn’t have a part of my dad with me each day I’ll be forever grateful for what you have managed to do for me thank you soooo much xx”


Customer Reviews of Memorial Jewellery 62

Customer Reviews of Memorial Jewellery 63
Customer Reviews of Memorial Jewellery 64
Made in memory of Lara…
“I wasn’t aware that memorial jewellery for pets was a possibility until I found impressive memories.”

“I had hoped that my memorial jewellery would bring me comfort and a lasting memory of my girl. Having my memorial jewellery has brought me the comfort that I had hoped for. I now have a tangible lasting memory of my girl that I can keep forever.

“Yes, I would recommend getting memorial jewellery. I only wish that I had found out about this service before my other girl passed away. This is by far one of the best things that you could ever do to preserve your pet’s memory. I love being able to hold and touch my girl’s nose. I am now left with a beautiful lasting memory.”


Customer Reviews of Memorial Jewellery 65
Made in memory of James…

“I feel as if part of him is still with me. I would highly recommend memorial jewellery and always ask the funeral director if they have a leaflet for the service. Jen gave our funeral director leaflets just a few days before we asked.”

“I think Jen showed so much compassion and passion for her work. I felt I was with a friend, not just someone who makes jewellery. We shared tears and laughter the day I collected our pendants. As difficult as it was at the time I’m truly grateful to Jen, I spend so much time feeling my son’s actual fingerprint that I’m surprised it hasn’t worn off. It’s still as good as new though. Thanks Jen x”


memorial miniprint silver jewellery
Made in memory of Danielle’s brother’s baby, born sleeping…
“A precious keepsake – I would recommend memorial jewellery as it is a way of remembering someone and being able to carry them with you, something to always look upon”
dog memorial engraved jewellery
Made in memory of Zeus…

How does your jewellery make you feel?

“DO IT, but do it when the time is not of the essence so you have time to think about what you would like and time to make them happen too.”

“The two purchases so far have made the grieving process easier for sure. I’m fairly certain he has no clue, as I do believe once we die we are dead, but it gives me such comfort to know parts of him are still near and not only is he in my thoughts but I can ‘prove’ my enduring love by the items I own/wear. Never forgotten. Always in my head & heart.”


cancer ribbon with fingerprints
Made in memory of Jak…

How does your jewellery make you feel?

“Close to my son and daughter”

Would you recommend memorial jewellery? What advice would you offer someone in the same situation that you were?

“Yes and definitely go for it”

“Jen, you are very special to us I love my Fingerprint necklaces and charms thanku xxx”


Made in memory of Vicky’s Mum…

“It makes me feel bittersweet, it’s so personal and I feel like she’s always with me, yet I’ll never see her again. This necklace is so very precious to me and always will be”

“I absolutely would recommend memorial jewellery, it’s a unique piece of jewellery and so personal to the wearer, it’s a constant part of a lost loved one that can be taken everywhere easily and discreetly if so wanted. Many people have commented on mine and I feel privileged to have something so special”

“At such a difficult time it’s easy to get lost in all the grief and emotion, you can hear what people around you are saying but it gives you no comfort. In a heartbeat, your world has been turned upside down. I always knew I wanted something to make me feel close to my mum when she died. Jen’s work was highly recommended to me by the funeral director – and for good cause. The craftsmanship is excellent. But for me, it’s more than that. Jen took the time to find out what I wanted, was patient and caring when she took my mums fingerprints. She listened and advised, not just on the jewellery, but also what I was going through, having recently been through the same experience of losing her mum suddenly. I truly am grateful for my necklace but also to have found someone so caring like Jen has been an added bonus”

8 Creative and Meaningful Ways to Remember Your Loved Ones

8 Creative and Meaningful Ways to Remember Your Loved Ones

8 Creative and Meaningful Ways to Remember Your Loved Ones

A memory is never more precious than when we face losing a loved one.

Bereavement, whether it’s been an expected or untimely departure, is a difficult process. One of our biggest fears might be that we forget them. What if I forget what they looked like? The sound of their voice? The smell of their clothes? Their laugh?

We have to accept that they’ve gone, but that doesn’t mean they will ever be forgotten.

Creating personalised memorabilia can help bring comfort and remember the legacy of the person they commemorate.

How Can I help?

  • Would you like to know how I can help you capture and hold on to final memories?
  • Do you want to know what can be captured?
  • Have you lost someone in the past and thought it was now too late?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of those questions – keep reading.

8 Creative Memorial Ideas

  1. Lifecasting
  2. Miniaturised Casts
  3. Fingerprint Jewellery
  4. Hand & Footprint Jewellery
  5. Locks of Hair Memorabilia
  6. Cremation Ash Memorabilia
  7. Signature & Handwriting Jewellery
  8. Tattoos

You probably knew I did lifecasting, but you maybe didn’t know I regularly help families who have suffered a loss.

3D lifecasting is the art of moulding an exact replica of ourselves – usually our hands.  I capture and create a stunning piece of unique artwork, and let you cherish and hold onto a loved one’s hand after they have left us.

The name may suggest that life is needed but this art can still be done under certain circumstances after people pass away. Timing is vital for this to happen – early arrangements must be made to enable this option to be viable.

If circumstances allow you may be able to hold hands with your loved one or have them cast individually.

  • Can this be done prior to a person passing away? Yes.
  • How much will it cost? Approx £200+
  • Are there time limitations for this to be feasible? Yes, please speak to me before the person passes away, or within hours of them passing.
  • Are there location limitations – Yes. This requires me to meet with the deceased in person.  
  • Can this be offered for pets? Yes.
miniaturised hand and foot charm
Miniaturised Casts
miniature 3d lifecast charms

Miniaturised Casts

Once you’ve had a 3D cast created you then have the option to miniaturise this into a sterling silver piece of unique jewellery. Handmade by me. (Can also be done for pets that pass away)

  • Can this be done prior to a person passing away? Yes.
  • How much will it cost? From £300+
  • Are there time limitations for this to be feasible? No, not if the casts are already taken. Yes, if the casts still need to be taken.
  • Are there location limitations? If you need me to take the casts, yes. If you have casts made already by another lifecaster, No.
  • Can this be offered for pets? Yes.

Fingerprint Jewellery

When we lose a loved one, we long to keep a hold of them forever.  By creating a fingerprint charm you can keep a cherished imprint from them and wear them with you forever.

I wrote a blog recently on my own experience with capturing fingerprints after we lose a loved one, you can read it here.

Fingerprint jewellery is a subtle and unique way to remember a person that we’ve lost. It can be done after a person dies, it is a non-invasive, gentle and quick process. The prints can be used now and repeatedly in the future with my methods of capturing them.

There is more information here if you’d like to create fingerprint jewellery. (Can also be done for pets that pass away – a paw pad or nose impression can be done)

  • Can this be done prior to a person passing away? Yes.
  • How much will it cost? From £45+
  • Are there time limitations for this to be feasible? Possibly. Each case is unique but most people (and pets) are able to have impressions taken prior to the funeral.
  • Are there location limitations? No. A kit can be posted with all you need to capture the fingerprint impression.
  • Can this be offered for pets? An impression of the nose can be taken.

Hand & Footprint Jewellery (Paws too)

This style of jewellery lets you take a print from the hand or foot and shrink it down in size and imprint it onto jewellery. It can be done using a simple ink pad and paper but this is messy and leaves the hands and feet stained. There are much better options available that give a high definition print of the person you’re remembering which are clean and easy to do.

Having these images lets you create a range of jewellery ideas, imprinting into the silver or engraving metals.(Can also be done for pets that pass away)

  • Can this be done prior to a person passing away? Yes.
  • How much will it cost? From £55+
  • Are there time limitations for this to be feasible? Possibly. Each case is unique but most people (and pets) are able to have prints taken prior to the funeral.
  • Are there location limitations? No. A kit can be posted with all you need to capture the hand/foot/paw print.
  • Can this be offered for pets? Yes.

Locks of Hair Memorabilia

Hair collecting is not a new idea, it began with the Victorians. Hair was a symbol of femininity and seen as a precious memento. It was popular before photography was widely available and more intimate than a memento of handwriting, a lock of hair was the ultimate connection with its owner.

Keeping a lock of hair in a locket or charm is a subtle way to hold onto a memory. I will be updating my website very soon with many new ideas – watch this space!

  • Can this be done prior to a person passing away? Yes.
  • How much will it cost? From £45+
  • Are there time limitations for this to be feasible? No, so long as you have a lock of hair.
  • Are there location limitations? No.
  • Can this be offered for pets? Yes.

cremation ash ring

Cremation Ash Memorabilia

Incorporating cremation ashes into charms is becoming a popular jewellery option. It can create a beautiful lasting tribute after we’ve lost a loved one. The ashes can be encapsulated within glass or resin to create a unique piece of jewellery.

As with hair I offer a varied range of items and will also be adding these to my website shop too.

  • Can this be done prior to a person passing away? No.
  • How much will it cost? From £45+
  • Are there time limitations for this to be feasible? No, so long as you have the ashes.
  • Are there location limitations? No.
  • Can this be offered for pets? Yes.

Did you know YOU could become a Diamond?

Hair and cremation ash can also be used to create a manmade diamond…this isn’t something I can do, but it is possible…this video shows you how. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6aQPIK4sE58

Signature and Handwriting Jewellery (Drawings too)

Sometimes circumstances just don’t allow for any of the previous options to be created. Did you know I can take a persons signature or handwriting and create you a charm with their writing?

It’s like wearing a message from the person, for a lifetime. A handwritten letter, birthday card or note. This can also be done with drawings or doodles. The original won’t be damaged in any way. Such a lovely way to add a personal touch to a charm.

  • Can this be done prior to a person passing away? Yes.
  • How much will it cost? From £55+
  • Are there time limitations for this to be feasible? No.
  • Are there location limitations? No.
  • Can this be offered for pets? If your dog can sign his name…Yes!


No, before you ask, I am not a tattooist! But I can help you create the image you need to take to a tattooist if this is something you’d like to do. The process is the same as I use for creating the hand/foot/paw prints for jewellery, and I’m happy to help you capture these. (Please note these images are not mine. To find the image source/artist/photographer please click the image)

  • Can this be done prior to a person passing away? Yes.
  • How much will it cost? The kit costs £10
  • Are there time limitations for this to be feasible? Possibly. Each case is unique but most people (and pets) are able to have prints taken prior to the funeral.
  • Are there location limitations? No.
  • Can this be offered for pets? Yes.


Memories don’t have to fade and they don’t need to live in dusty boxes of old photographs stuffed in a cupboard. Losing a loved one certainly doesn’t mean we forget about them…on the contrary.

These 8 ideas are to inspire you to hold on to what is so Impressive about those that mean the most to us. To remember them, keep them near to us in our thoughts and touch & hold on to our memories today, and every day.

If you’d like to get in touch I’m happy to chat through any questions or queries you might have. My contact details are at the bottom of my website.

Feedback Form

Asking for feedback is important but it can also feel a little bit scary. The purpose of it, for me, is to listen. I am constantly improving and changing how I run my business…or at least I’m trying to! But unless I ask the right questions to the right people…HOW CAN I IMPROVE? This is where you can help…

I’m a big fan of Peter Kay. Have you seen his sketch about being out for a meal in a restaurant and thinking the food is below average? I bet we’ve all experienced that –  sadly. But when the waiter asks “Is everything OK?” everyone smiles politely and says it’s great…Why do we do that? You can enjoy the clip below…

When I ask for feedback it certainly isn’t for flattery. I genuinely need to know what customers are thinking and feeling.

  • What could I improve?
  • How can I make it easier & more customer friendly?
  • What could be better?
  • Who are my customers?

It’s important for me to know more about my customers. If you’re able to help I’d be really grateful – I might even say it’d be IMPRESSIVE…

You can complete the feedback form HERE…

Don’t worry about spelling or punctuation (I’m not a teacher anymore (phew), this isn’t a test!!) I know you’re busy…most of it is ticky boxes…and no questions are compulsory to answer…I will be extremely grateful for any help you can give.

So, put your feet up…make a coffee…relax…yeah right, like that will happen!! Realistically? Juggle your phone in one hand…type one handed whilst opening a packet of crisps between your teeth and picking up lego with your toes. Remember the dishwasher needs to be emptied, tomorrow is gym day and the dog needs to be at the vet’s before tea…you have organised tea…haven’t you?
