TALLAS TREASURES - Hand/Foot & Paw Casting
I started Talla's Treasures when i unfortunately lost my dad back in May 2017.
I was so desperate to want every piece of my dad after he passed away, which lead me to taking a hand cast of him in the co-op chapel of rest.
I found so much comfort in been able to hold his hand forever and I wanted to offer other families this service.
I started a Facebook page and my first cast was for Bradley Lowery the Sunderland fan, who was unwell and battled neuroblastoma for 4 years.
His family were so desperate to get a cast done of little Brad, so i got in touch and offered my services as a gift.
I feel very privileged to have been able to do this for the Lowery family.
I take casts in many locations including mortuaries, funeral homes, veterinary clinics, residential care and personal homes.
I have qualified in a casting course at PRECIOUS MEMORIES KEEPSAKES with Glenda Hickmott in Poole to finalise my expertise in casting area.
I have also been able to make hanging charms which the ashes can be placed in the bottom or make resin moulds with ashes.
Hand and feet castings are not just for loving memories, these can be great keepsakes and gifts for family, friends and pets paws.
I also recently finished a Finger print jewellery making course with Helen Drye at Silver stone company Nov 2020.
So feel free to contact me with ideas and we can achieve these together 07731332588 or
Id also like to say a special THANK YOU to:
Makeup Artist Davy Jones from Liverpool who i trained with for 4 weeks in prosthetics.
Davy very kindly gave me money to buy the products to do my dads cast and i can not thank him enough for his kindness and genuine interest in my new venture.
Also my very good friend Michael Robinson sadly passed away.
Michaels wife Justine donated towards my business to help me buy the products for little Bradley as Micheal was a Sunderland football fan and he loved Bradley.
I also was given help from CTBF for some more training in castings.
i would like to thank this company for funds they gave me and the help and support.
In memory of my dad Paul 'TALLA' Tallentire 30/03/1950 - 10/05/2017
ALSO in memory of my Grandma Lily Welch and my Mam Susan Tallenire who recently passed away July 2020.
