Today Tomorrow & Always
is a family owned and run business that turns life's memories
into something you can hold using DNA and other materials
Today Tomorrow & Always was founded by Allison Ockenden, a mother of 4 and grandmother to a beautiful grandson.
It was founded in memory of Emanuel Teixeira who is loved and missed every single day since his passing in 2015.
We launched Today Tomorrow & Always on September 18th, 2018 which marked 3 years since we lost Manny. We did this deliberately so that each year as the anniversary of losing him rolled around we could turn our grief and sadness into a celebration. A celebration that we knew him, we loved him and all the great memories we carry with us and that even though he's gone we still talk about him every day as well as the reminder that we now help other families who've lost loved ones to not be in our shoes, to allow them to keep a piece of them to hold onto for
Today Tomorrow & Always
Today Tomorrow & Always is also here to help you celebrate any and all amazing moments and memories of life.
Breastfeeding journeys that reach personal goals, the wedding proposals that took weeks of planning, the wedding of your dreams and even the holiday of a lifetime, we are here to turn that moment into something you can touch.
Life is full of moments, triumphs and just pure joy and remembering the happiest and proudest moments in life and reliving them is one of the most magical things we can do. Pregnancy, birth, weddings, and graduations are just a few of the incredibly special moments in life that we get to be apart of by memorialising your memories into something you can hold.
We use a range of inclusions to incorporate into your keepsakes including breastmilk, formula and other milk alternatives, umbilical stump,placenta, first curls and hair, pet fur, embryo ash and the cremation ashes of pets and loved ones as well as sand, dirt, fabrics and more.
Each piece is handmade with your story in mind. our dedicated team want to hear your stories and understand the reasons behind each piece. Does it make a difference to our work, well no, but it sure does fill our hearts and make us feel connected to each family that joins the TTA community.

What do others have to say about Today Tomorrow & Always?
Choosing a DNA artist to entrust with your precious inclusion whether it be the last bag of breastmilk, the first lock of hair from baby's first hair cut, fur or ashes from your beloved pet or something special to remember a loved one that has passed on can be a very hard and emotional decision. We only work with those we match with and than we know we can help through the journey of having a keepsake made .
Each DNA artist has their own style, skill set, experience and experience they give their customers. To help you understand what to expect if we work together here's what other's have said about their experience.
What makes us different? It's simple. We care.
We take the time to get to know the story behind each piece we craft, the babies born too soon, the pets that cross over the rainbow bridge , the magical moments in life that make up the story of your life. We don't see people as clients, we see them as new members of our community. A community that's filled with love, support, encouragement and an uplifting spirit.
We turn these memories into keepsakes you can hold and cherish for many years to come. We are the ones who understand the grief process and know exactly what's it's like. This experience has left us with the advantage of knowing the best pieces to help you cope through the darker moments in life.
Our mission is to rid the world of the sentence "I wish I knew you existed when.....". We hear this so often it no longer crushes our heart, it fuels the fire within us to spread the word of what we do and how we can help families celebrate and/or commemorate their lives.
Beyond the exceptional quality of each piece we make, our consideration and care is expressed in a profound commitment to deliver the highest quality in both service and product to each and every one we deal with. We treat every inclusion that is given to us to use with the utmost care and respect as if they were priceless.....because they are.
We use the highest
quality precious gems and stones to make our jewelry and display keepsakes
We use only the finest quality metals not cheaply plated metals
