Since opening 10 years ago, First Treasures has created over 4000 professionally made hand and foot castings from our countryside studio near Chelmsford, Essex.
Studio castings at First Treasures are a world apart from 'at home casting kits', every part of the casting process is professionally executed and crafted, drawing on years of experience and design skills. Virtually any design request can be brought to life, the only limit is your imagination!
During the casting you will be guided through the layout, design and colour options of our products, whilst being shown all of the example frames and castings on display. The casting process is thoroughly explained and done at your child's pace, my experience and expertise means that the whole process is completely stress free. The moulds for the castings are taken at the time of the appointment, but the magic really happens after you go home...
Each cast captures every last detail of the hands and feet; therefore jewellery, finger nails, joints and palm lines are all clearly visible in each finished product. Casts are then sanded, shaped and prepared for painting. Our paint finishes are then applied in many micro -fine layers ensuring no detail is lost.
We also create a wide range of beautiful personalised jewellery, that captures those unique, fingerprints, handprints, footprints and paw prints in stunning silver and stainless steel. All of our hand, foot and fingerprint jewellery are made to order so that each piece is unique.
Card payments are accepted. Gift Vouchers for castings are available and make perfect gifts for Birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Christenings.
It was amazing experience - quick and easy which meant baby didn’t have to stay still long. Laura was amazing and the end result is just the best thing and definitely worth the money!"
