How it all began
We are Sophia & Helena, two sisters who run Foreva Yours - Impressions & Framing. Born and bred in Darwin, we specialise in custom design framed castings and are qualified framers (Certificate III in Picture Framing).
We pursued professional careers in finance and health, however our creative side was always wanting to come out.
Helena became a Pharmacist and Sophia became a Practice Manager. As much as we loved using the other side of our brain that explored analytics and a thirst for knowledge, we knew we always wanted to work for ourselves and unleash our creative side.
When the opportunity arose to purchase a business that could combine the two sides - the practical and creative, we jumped at the chance to go on this amazing journey and have not looked back.
As sisters, we work well as a team and are able to focus on different areas of the business. Helena is our resident Queen of Sculpting! She truly is patient and diligent and will ensure your castings have the best detail. She will know every wrinkle and crease of each foot or hand she comes across and can even tell what baby/child it is from just by looking at it. She also manages the workshop which is where these beautiful keepsakes are made and put together.
Sophia is the face you will see at all casting appointments. She gets to have a chat and get clucky (over and over again) - even though she is mum to two young kids aged 5 and 1. She also manages the day to day running of the business.
Together, we manage the deliveries of these precious keepsakes and are frequently seen together at the pop up stalls.
Whilst we still maintain our professional careers part time, we have found our passion with castings and framing. The endless smile and gratitude on their faces when their keepsake is handed to them is priceless.
We are about quality whether it be workmanship, materials or service delivery. We are booked out in advance and there may be less expensive options out there but if you want a keepsake that is made with love and attention and care, you do get what you pay for. We make and construct your frames and shadowboxes in house and do not send off shore to have them made cheaper. We ensure all our materials used are of a high standard and we don't provide you with unrealistic expectations to compromise on the workmanship to meet your delivery date.
We made a promise that we would always be honest with our clients. We put everything into making these keepsakes so we want them to look amazing for you. We will always tell you if the design won't look right or suggest adding/removing a few elements. We want the final piece to be as close to perfect as it can so we can hand it over to you, knowing you will love it as much as we do.
Compassion and empathy are essential to this work. We love connecting with clients and truly understanding them and being able to deliver these precious keepsakes.
Our promise to you is excellent client service, positivity and outstanding handmade products made with love that you will treasure for years to come.
Allow us the opportunity to capture those precious memories for you and your family to treasure for many years to come.
