Our precious little people grow up so fast mamas and while the early years (and sleepless nights) might seem to last forever, before you know it the babies are out of diapers and heading to college. Photos will capture a moment but we quickly forget how tiny our kids were – how little their hands and feet felt against our own and just how darn cute those tiny digits are. Well mamas, what if we told you that British company Wrightson and Platt create physical memories through their beautiful life-casts that immortalise those treasured early moments through bronze, silver or glass casts of your baby’s hands and feet, which can then be incorporated into bespoke jewellery pieces, sculptures and much more? Hallelujah!
With fans including Stella McCartney and other celebrities worldwide plus heaps of mamas all over the globe, these sentimental products hail back to Queen Victoria’s own precious commissioned mementos of her children. Don’t worry ladies, the whole process is completely safe and convenient; your baby’s hands or feet are simply dipped into an all-natural soft seaweed gel that creates the basis of your bespoke commission.
Not feeling very mobile? For mamas who can’t make the trip to see the lovely Wrightson & Platt representative Amanda in her Dubai studio, she will happily come to you!
After the teeny casting (cute!), the moulds are sent to the Wrightson and Platt workshop all the way in London where their talented craftsmen will set to work to create the magic and bring each piece to life. Within just over twelve weeks (because the best things come to those who wait), they’ll be delivered right to your doorstep. A mother’s love never fades, and with Wrightson and Platt, neither will your memories, mamas.
