We have created a Gift Certificate to purchase that you can print off and present as a gift for Christmas allowing the person to order and choose the book and names to personalise.
Because each of our books is personalised with a chosen name/term of endearment and customised with illustrations according to the family’s preference, making a choice for someone else when ordering can be difficult.
Our beautiful, full-colour gift certificate, allows you to purchase a copy of the book as a gift for someone but gives them the opportunity to personalise the book as they wish.
Our personalised books are available for families who have experienced all kinds of loss, including that of a baby, child, parent, grandparent or other special loved one.
Precious Prints is an Irish company specialising in the creation of bespoke jewellery. Their range of lovingly hand-crafted pieces in pure silver includes bracelets, pendants and cuff links designed to capture your child’s footprints, fingerprints or handprints. They are delightful gifts suitable for any occasion be it birthdays, anniversaries or at Christmas Time. Such pieces are precious to parents and, as we well know in Feileacain, even more precious to those parents and families of a child who has died.
Precious Prints works from a black and white photocopy of your child’s foot prints or hand prints which can be either e-mailed or posted to them. This imprints can be added to any piece that you see on the website or if you have an idea for a piece that you don’t see here they will work with you to create it.
If you don’t have prints Helena has a range of images she can use, for example an Angel key ring and along with your childs name and date and she can add a birthstone coloured crystal. Bespoke pieces are her speciality so please contact her if you have a piece you would like to create.
Please ensure that it is only the photocopied prints that are posted as no damage then can come to the originals of those very special prints.

Some beautiful samples that we can make for you, capturing moments in Silver forever.
Hi, I’m a glass bead artist.
I use some of your lost loved ones cremations ashes and add them to melted glass.
The cremains are seen within the glass as swirly white flakes, the effect of flakes and bubbles is visually pleasant and quite often people comment on how pretty the beads are – unaware that they contain cremains, so this is a very discrete way of keeping your loved one close to you.
You can also choose to have the ashes added to opaque glass so you know it’s there but cannot be seen.
I work to tailor each Memorial bead to the client’s specifications, colour and design can be chosen when ordering.
I will treat your loved one with the same care and respect that I would for a member of my own family. I give every client my full attention throughout the process so you can be sure that your loved one is handled sensitively and with respect.
I only need around two teaspoons of cremains and even then there will probably be some left over which will be returned with the completed glass jewelry. The cremains are posted to me in a “zip lock” type bag.
The process can take 2/3 weeks. I will finish the bead with sterling silver grommets and it will be ready to be added to your bracelet as soon as you receive it.
You can contact me by email, firstname.lastname@example.org
Or message me through my Facebook page. https://m.facebook.com/demelza.cremationbeadsireland/
