Judy with Nadia aged three
First Impressions started over 30 years ago when Judy was looking for a unique way to celebrate her godson Gideon's birth, so cast his tiny feet in plaster for his parents.
When Judy's daughter Nadia was three, Judy made a cast of them holding hands. This piece hangs in the First Impressions office where today, Nadia works alongside her.
Today, First Impressions is famous for capturing memories in precious metals and glass, using emerging technology to create wearable sculpture.
