'I found out about Kate through a charm I received last summer. The charm was a print of my friends hand who we sadly lost to breast cancer last August and it means the world to me. I wear it every day and I'd be lost without it. I rang Kate to say thanks and to ask if she could fit us in for prints before Christmas. She did, literally that day, as my diary was hectic but she squeezed me in and got exceptional prints from my daughter - not easy or so I thought with a 1 year old...I have tried to get prints off my little girl while painting and they're terrible!
Initially I got cufflinks for my partner, he absolutely loves them. One has a print of my little girls hand, the other her foot and they are beautiful. The design, the silver, the prints, the gift box, everything about them I love. Since then I have added a larger hand print of my little girl made which Kate kindly posted to me. I can't really describe how important my necklace is to me, knowing my friend is with me and next to my little girls hand is so comforting.
I recommend EVERYTHING about Finger and Thumbs, the art work, the jewelry but more importantly Kate who is simply wonderful.'
‘I was really upset as Id lost my baby’s handprint heart that Kate had previously made. I got in touch with Kate and she invited me and my daughter to her home at a time that suited me so that we could create another handprint silver heart. I also wanted Kate to make some new items for me for Mother’s Day.
Kate was lovely with my four-year-old daughter. She felt so at ease that sat happily at her table and drew a picture of me. Kate has turned into a beautiful silver keyring. It felt like popping to a friends for coffee.
I also bought a beautiful ball chain bracelet with a Letter P charm. Kate was happy to create a finger print of my daughters on a matching charm. My daughter also loved having her finger print taken.
My daughter was so excited when the items arrived. The handprint charm was an excellent replacement, the bracelet is unique and the keyring really is special. My daughter can’t believe her drawing is on it exactly as she drew it. All items are excellent quality. Delighted with jewellery and would highly recommend.’

Kate is amazing, her products are such good quality and she was brilliant with Stanley.
I have had two sets of products from her, the first was done at 3 weeks old and she managed to get a handprint done which is really difficult to do!
The turn around time is really quick and she has worked around my timings for gifts as well, making sure I can come to her and pick up at a time which suits me.
I would highly recommend and will definitely be buying more in the future.
Looking at my boy this morning I was reminded how quickly that time goes and how our babies don’t stay small forever! Kate captures things that you can’t recreate, it may be a paw print, a hand cast, thumb print, hand... anything! That imprint is keepsake and an ability to freeze time so we can remember! Thank you so much Kate for capturing my babies hand prints on charms that I can keep close to my heart everyday so I can remember how blessed I am. If anyone is looking to capture a moment I would recommend Kate! The quality of work is amazing!
I would like to both Thank & recommend Finger & Thumbs Keepsakes who made a beautiful pendant for my brother & his partner of their baby boys handprint who sadly was watching over us from heaven whilst she opened her gift.
Kate was able to make this pendant using a photo of the handprint taken by the hospital staff which meant they didn’t even need to part with the actual ink copies which was a huge relief & yet the detail in the pendant is just as perfect as if his hand had been present.
I want to recommend Kate for coming to my mum's house before Christmas and taking a cast of her hand, along with mine and my 2 (grown up) children.
Mum has Alzheimers and our 4 hands are what my husband calls 'freaky' as they bend outwards and are short. However we call them our Creative Hands as it is from mum, and her mother, my Grandma who was a dressmaker, but she also owned a Haberdashery/Wool shop. Strange I now own my own Haberdashery/Wool/Fabric shop and make items for customers out of our fabrics.
I'll forever be able to hold my mum's hand.
I want to say a huge thank you to the lovely Kate Hughes who made me this gorgeous silver charm of our precious Ruby’s paw print to remember her by when she passed away in July.
She makes some absolutely gorgeous items and I am so very grateful
Thank you Kate xxx
I would like to recommend Kate Hughes from Fingers and Thumbs Keepsakes who has made this amazing necklace and charms of my children’s hand and footprints. The detail is amazing and I will treasure them forever! Thank you!
Yet another beautiful keepsake of my little girl!
Kate has actually made me keepsakes, of all my girls ‘child’ prints; even though two of them are all grown up now and this one is actually a baby footprint from when my little one was 3 months old (she’s now 7), as Kate was again able to turn a simple canvas print, that I’d done myself years ago, into a beautiful silver charm. So pleased!

I lost my beautiful boy Guinness on 27.12.2018 aged 16+ and Kate made me a beautiful pendant in memory of him. It is beautifully made with intricate detail all taken from a photo! Thank you Kate xx
Kate made me five new initial charms and had them and an existing charm soldered onto my own bracelet. I'm absolutely thrilled - these won't come off on clothing like all my Sabo ones did! Very reasonable and fabulous communication throughout - thank you!
Kate’s work is amazing! We had both hands and feet casts done for both our babies when they were about 2 weeks old and it’s one of the cutest and most timeless baby keepsake we have. Kate is very professional, and she’s very gentle and careful and patient throughout the casting process. Highly, highly recommend Finger and Thumb!!
Kate made a beautiful cast of hands and feet of my baby. We get lots of comments and compliments about it. Kate uses quality materials and gives an excellent finish. She is also so lovely
I had a necklace made with my 2 children’s finger prints on. It is beautifully made and I just love wearing it. Kate is lovely, great advice given and quick to reply back to messages. Would highly recommend. X
Fantastic product and service. I bought cuff links for my husband with our two girl’s handprints and they are stunning. Thankyou xx
I have had a pet keyring from Kate which were amazing. I have just picked up a hand cast, I asked for something slightly different and Kate was so helpful. It was exactly as I had described and looks amazing. Highly recommend, these are such high-quality keepsakes for life. x
Excellent quality and excellent products. I made personalised bauble and mugs. They made amazing presents and I'll be back for more this year. Thanks again!
I asked Kate to replicate a canvas I had for my older children.
The canvas footprints Kate made is better than originals!! I absolutely love it. I would highly recommend her.
Kate has just done a family cast for us and been so professional and helpful in sourcing ways to add the Calligraphy quote I would like!! Can't wait to see the finishes product.
Amazing quality! Gorgeous such amazing keepsakes xx
Lovely presents, helping make special memories xx
