Fingerprint Jewellery became very popular around 11 years ago when I started my business and has grown in popularity over the years, especially with new mums and also as memorial pieces.
I offer two options for your special pieces – those with indented fingerprints, usually more popular with mums who have young children and like to see the little dimple print, but also pieces made using inked fingerprints, usually better with adult prints and thus suitable as wedding, anniversary or memorial pieces.
If you are interested in any fingerprint jewellery, please do have a look on my website here at all the options available. You can see from the photos below that I do a wide range of pieces, using either inked or traditional fingerprints and as each piece is handmade, they can all be personalised and customised just for you.
If you don’t have fingerprints to use, once your order is placed, I will send out a special impression or print kit so that you can take the appropriate prints and send them back to me. For indented fingerprints, I use a special two part moulding compound which is very easy to use and sets in a few minutes. Full instructions are provided with the kit and you should have no problem taking good prints. For pieces made using inked prints, you can email prints to me if you have them already or I can provide a special inkless paper and wipe, which you can then use to take prints. Again, very easy and all instructions are provided.
The process of making fingerprint jewellery is lengthy and therefore orders can take up to 4 weeks to be completed. The prints are transferred onto sterling silver and your personalisation added. The piece is fired and finished off to a high shine and then carefully packaged to send to you.
There is no age limit for fingerprint jewellery – although babies may not have strongly defined fingerprints, the little fingerprint dimple will show on the silver and likewise, as we get older, the skin on our fingers thins and sometimes it may be difficult to get a good defined print from the elderly, which is why I do sometimes suggest trying both methods for elderly relatives and friends, so that I can choose which method will produce the best pieces for you.
I take commissions and am happy to discuss options for bespoke pieces – please email email@example.com to discuss further.
