Mothers Day: Gift Guide

Mothers Day: Gift Guide

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 11th March 2018 shouldn’t be either.

There is something for everyone.  Well, everyone that’s Impressive enough!

1. Gifts Under £25

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 2nd of March 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 25th February 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 25th February to guarantee your item is ready to be posted/collected in time for Mother’s Day.

3. Gift Vouchers

Choose a Gift Voucher and let mum be part of the creative fun!

If you’re quick you might still manage to grab an appointment as near to Mother’s Day as possible…capture a memory to treasure for a lifetime.

Vouchers can also be used for jewellery and ceramic orders. Online and at appointments too.

4. 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.

5. Miniaturised Charms of YOUR child

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! They are valid for one year, but if baby isn’t due for a while, I will add longer onto the voucher.

I've left it too late - HELP?

It’s never too late!! Why not order an item and have the print kit ready to take the impressions on Mother’s Day, 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 HERE 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 - 11th March 2018

If you’re a mum, a step-mum, a foster mum, an adopted mum…If you’ve been a mum, you’ll be a mum soon, or you had an awesome mum who’s now passed…

If you’re able to go and hug your mum and tell her how amazing she is on the 11th of March – do it!!

And not just on this one day, because mums never stop being mums…

Be sure to make their day Impressive and filled with Memories.

Happy Mother’s Day from me,

Rosy Golden Moments: Fingerprint Jewellery

Rosy Golden Moments: Fingerprint Jewellery
ROSY GOLD FIngerprint jewellery

NEW Rosy Golden Moments

First, there was pure silver, then there was sterling silver. I was asked for gold and along came Golden Moments…so what was I asked for next?

“Can you make Rose Gold fingerprint jewellery?”

Yes! I can now make you Rosy Golden Moments!

Fingerprint and miniprint jewellery in a pretty rosy golden finish.

What do you think? Are you a fan of rose gold? I love it. From iPhones, trainers, makeup, jewellery and not forgetting wine…I am a bit of a fan of rose gold…so I was pretty excited to start trying to make rose gold fingerprint and miniprint jewellery.

rose gold

All that glitters is not necessarily gold.

If you read my blog on my Golden Moments you’ll know that I now do a full range of jewellery in a beautiful golden finish without the high costs of hallmarked gold. Perfect if you’d rather spend £50 than £500. You can read about them here and find a small selection in my online shop.

Fingerprint & Miniprint Jewellery in Rose Gold finish

I am delighted to say that Rosy Golden Moments will now be available at Impressive Memories too.

Just like my popular Golden Moments range, these are made from a gorgeous new metal at a fraction of the cost of gold, but all the beauty and shine.

Impressive Customer Story…

December 2016, a customer who has been to me many times, rang me. We’ve captured her three children’s little hands and feet in jewellery and ceramics over the years, but this time the call wasn’t about them.

She was facing losing a very precious friend and fellow young mum. We chatted through a few different options and made a plan.

December is a busy month for all of us, and workwise for me, I am usually exhausted but when she called again to say time was limited and she was flying down to share New Year with her friend, we knew it was time to take the fingerprints.

It was the eve of Hogmanay. We arranged to collect a fingerprint kit that she would take on her flight to spend time with a brave, courageous and much-loved friend. I talked her through all she needed to do, and the best way to do it. And off she went…

In February it had been on my mind that I hadn’t asked how the print taking had gone – I dropped her a quick message. She was back down south for what would be a final visit.

This courageous mum’s battle ended on the 17th of February. Having defeated cancer once, her second chance at life – that everyone had hoped for – was not to be. A young mum with everything to live for had had it cruelly taken away.

Just two hours after her passing, I got a message to tell me. And yes, my eyes filled with tears reading her message. I hadn’t met this brave lady, but I’d been allowed to be part of capturing a memory for two very impressive friends. I also don’t think there is a mum amongst us that wouldn’t ache, imagining the horror of coming to terms with the inevitable fate she was dealt.

At Impressive Memories, I deal with lots of emotional situations. Celebrations and happy events, but also some very harrowing ones too. There is something very touching when a person feels able to share difficult times with you too.

So here we are now in April and I’d like to share the beautiful memories we’ve made.

Lisa liked the way my logo had two interlocked fingerprints and asked for their charm to be made this way too. Best friends, their prints side by side – a pinky promise x

The reverse is hand engraved.

Hayley wore her children’s charms on her necklace, (I made both her son’s charms) but she decided on a birthday treat and a new Pandora style of bracelet. Alongside her new charm, it made a beautiful new piece of jewellery.

As I was making this for Hayley I was also experimenting with my new Rosy Gold and decided to try and make an extra gift. I had no idea if it would be successful, but if it was, I would then need to ask Hayley if she wouldn’t mind being ‘An Impressive Tester’!! This involves being gifted a new trial piece to wear and see if it stands up to the rigours of life – I won’t sell anything unless I know it will bring happiness – not heartache.

Each side of this heart bead has a fingerprint of each of these best friends. Beads have a central core through them to allow them to spin around the bracelet. The hint of pink amongst the silver bracelet looked so pretty.

When Hayley came to collect her order she was happy to test run her new, surprise addition too. Thank you, Hayley!!

I’ll let you know when Rosy Golden Moments will be available to buy. In the meantime, if you’d like to start planning YOUR Impressive Memories jewellery you might find this eBook helpful.
