Product Details

These deeply moving pieces are designed to help bring comfort and peace after a devastating loss. Only your little baby could have make that impression and now you have a way of holding them close always. Having your baby close can help with healing and help strengthen that intangible presence of a loved one lost.

Often when a baby or young person dies in hospital the staff will make ink handprints as a keepsake for the family. If you have prints at home already I can use these to create a beautiful, tactile piece to help capture that intangible presence of a loved one lost. If the print is from an adult there may also be enough detail to make a fingerprint piece, I'll do the best I can with what I have. Please contact me (Maura) at westcorkcasting@gmail.com to discuss your special memorial piece.

"When the first piece arrived I was so excited to see how it had turned out but I wasn't prepared for the unstoppable tears of joy that streamed down my cheeks. Being able to hold their fingerprint when you can no longer see their face,for me brings them closer to me and helps calm me in times of stress or anxiety" Kate, December 2020

Recently Maura did my Grandsons fingerprint for me on a beautiful silver heart. It was so precious and meant the world to me as in these difficult times I wasn’t able to give him a cuddle in person. I absolutely love my little keepsake and would highly recommend.

Who is it you are missing most right now?

– Are you longing to give your Mum a big hug?

– Can’t wait to have a cuppa with Granddad?

– Anticipating holding your grandchild for the first time?

– Loved ones living abroad?

– Special Aunt who can’t attend your wedding?

– Maybe you just want to celebrate your children?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to keep them close always?

Simple Process

Taking the impression is no more difficult that sticking your finger in a ball of playdoh. You will be sent detailed instructions and also an instruction video. I am available on the phone for backup support if needed!

Once you have an impression you are happy with you post it back to me and I remould it so that I can stamp the detail in to some sterling silver. It is a completely bespoke service and you are welcome to contact me at any time to discuss your piece and discuss any ideas you might have about how it will look.

Very occasionally an impression will be very faint, more often than not there is enough to see the print clearly in the silver. If it happens that an impression is too faint to stamp into silver I will contact you immediately and offer a full refund.
