About First Treasures

How it all started and how the studio operates today.


My name is Laura and I set up First Treasures 10 years ago, just after the birth of my first child. As soon as he was born my world changed; I felt as though I wanted to freeze time, he was just so precious and perfect! So I began learning to create 3d castings of his hands and feet for me to keep and remember how tiny he was.  Then, a little later I started to make the outprint tiles and jewellery, these products were my First Treasures of him...

First Treasures started from very humble beginnings; working from my kitchen at home, creating castings for friends and family.  I soon realised that I absolutely loved creating these memories for people and the positive feedback about my products blew me away!  So I set about creating the brand and building my business; slowly but surely with the help of my previous career in marketing, First Treasures has grown to what it is today; something I am very proud of.

First Treasures has now created over 3000 professionally made 3d baby hand and foot castings, family handclasp sculptures and outprint tiles from my bespoke countryside studio near Chelmsford in Essex.

I still wish I could freeze time, as I now have 2 children who are getting incredibly grown up and I am left wondering - where did that time go? BUT I have created castings of them over the years to capture them when they were tiny and I am thankful for that.  I have also created these special memories and keepsakes for so many local families too!

"Laura makes the most beautiful casts and so perfectly presented. She was an absolute pleasure throughout the whole process and her procedures are all very covid safe. She is brilliant and engaging with children and everything is done with complete ease. Would highly recommend Laura's services."

"Cannot recommend first treasures highly enough. Laura cast my biggest baby 5 years ago and now my recent baby, she also did me the honour of Framing my angel baby casts that were done by the hospital so they matched my other 2.
These are by far my favourite keepsake from my babies."

"We had both a hand/foot casting done for our 6 year old and then 11 week old as well as family hand cast. We are absolutely thrilled with the final products! Laura was very professional and made the experience very smooth. Would highly recommend First Treasures!"

Naomi Peace


"We are so pleased with the casts we got of our newborn daughter's hand and foot. Laura was welcoming, professional and excellent with our daughter when we needed help keeping her hand in the mould! The workshop is also clean and Covid safe! We will definitely be back and would highly recommend First Treasures - thank you so much Laura!"
