The Story of Immeryours – My love for Keepsakes, Jewellery and Memories
Immeryours was inspired by my love of tiny trinkets and smaller items that remind us of good memories, significant moments, beautiful places, and soulful connections. By carrying talismans or touching little tokens, I often feel waves of comfort and strength and feel connected to my own story and past.
Immeryours is a combination of the words “immer” and “yours.” ‘Immer’ is the German word for forever/ always, making the meaning of Immeryours = Forever Yours.
In 2016, I found my love for handcrafting beautiful keepsake jewellery and pieces designed to be loved and treasured. I believe that every story matters, and precious memories should be captured in the most beautiful of pieces as a bond between past, present and future generations.
Through my own grief and healing, I found that by creating memorial jewellery, I not only heal my soul but can have a meaningful impact on the people around me who are grieving.
‘Whatever pain you can’t get rid of, make it your creative offering.’ (Susan Cain)
Memorial Keepsake Jewellery is a tangible tribute to the stories and memories of precious moments in your life.
All my creations are beautiful pieces of jewellery that can be worn as a lasting tribute. Only the wearer knows its significance, and only they can choose to share the story or keep their memories safely tucked away.
I love playing with combinations of materials and coming up with something unexpectedly beautiful and sentimental. I have fine-tuned my craft in one-of-a-kind artworks, diamond and raw gemstone jewellery, and custom commissions.
Your keepsake jewellery is created with love, intention and purpose, in the space of honour, joy and respect. Those same values are passed on into every item I handmake. Being trusted to create a physical symbol of a lifetime of love and unforgettable memories is truly special. From the first moment we speak, my goal is to gently guide you and help you choose a piece of keepsake jewellery that represents and honours your memories. Handing over cremation ashes, locks of hair/fur, umbilical cord (and more) can be an emotional time, and it’s my job to lovingly support you.
One of the greatest gift for me is being able to create something that helps my clients through the grieving journey. I will not be able to remove your pain, but I can help you make your loved ones’ stories unforgettable and keep memories alive.
I would love to do the same for you and your precious memories.
Being kind to the environment is very important to me. I pride myself on being an eco-friendly and environmentally sustainable business. I am saying NO to plastic packaging wherever possible and have sourced beautiful eco-friendly materials instead.
Here are a few things we here at Immeryours are doing:
- invested in eco-sustainable packaging
- shop art supplies from eco-friendly and eco-conscious businesses
- recycle paper and packaging in our studio to our own garden and worm farm
- use natural and toxin-free cleaning solutions when crafting your jewellery
- recycle and reuse packaging from our suppliers wherever possible
- donate packaging to local schools for craft projects
Some of your keepsake jewellery is crafted with composite resin. Composite resin is not recyclable, and therefore I measure each creation strictly to your jewellery needs. Materials for your mixed keepsake stones are measured to the millimetre precisely. Not only does it help to reduce plastic waste, but this also means we waste non of your precious keepsake inclusions like cremation ashes or hair.
Should there be any leftover resin, this will be sent to you in a usable form, e.g. additional charms or stones. Excess epoxy resin not mixed with your keepsake is reused for artwork or turning blanks.
Community engagement is something I am very passionate about. Giving back wherever possible is a deep belief of mine. I do not share a lot about this on social media and instead do so silently.
I often support charitable organisations like ‘The Awearable Collective ‘, ’66 Rose Cystic Fibrosis’, donate to Australian Disaster Appeals and War Zone in Ukraine and I love assisting small rural animal rescues. In addition, since 2016, I’ve donated over 1000 keepsakes to families as part of a giving program.
