Make Memento was founded in 2012 by Hesta and Sam Byerley.
The idea for Make Memento came about whilst Hesta and Sam were planning their wedding. They found significant difficulty sourcing unique and lasting wedding favours and decorations. After trawling the internet for weeks on end, they decided to make their own wedding favours, individually crafting handmade wooden keyrings with each guest's name engraved. Sam sourced the materials and handcut the wood, whilst Hesta worked on the designs and hand-lettering to create truly unique wedding gifts. Hesta and Sam loved making the keyrings and even more importantly; the guests loved them too!
By the time they had returned from their honeymoon, Make Memento was more than just an idea! Within a few months, Hesta and Sam had gone from making 100 keyrings for their own wedding, to creating custom-made plaques, wall-hangings, coasters and many other items for new customers all over the world!
With Hesta's background in creative digital Marketing , and Sam's experience as a Landscape designer, they found their skills complemented each other brilliantly. It was a match made in heaven and Make Memento made perfect sense as a way of bringing unique creations to the online market!
Today, Make Memento is continuing to grow, with Hesta and Sam continuing to develop new product ranges, designs and styles for a loyal customer base and it's still just as fun as ever!
