How we make your Fingerprint Jewellery
In our experience,we recommend the minmium age for taking fingerprints is 4 months old and there is no maximum age!
Once you have ordered we will send you an easy to use impressions kit, with full instructions on how to capture the best fingerprint. The impressions kit contains moulding putty to capture three prints and we choose the best one, which we can use on several pieces of jewellery. We enclose an engraving form for you to detail what engraving you would like on the front and the back.
What we will need to produce your Little Hands & Feet and Pawprint Jewellery
You can either paint your child's hand and/or footprints or pets Pawprint. Alternatively, we can supply a special mess free, non toxic, inkless wipe kit for £5.00. The kit contains full instructions, together with two pieces of sensitised paper and a wipe for you to use. Once you have wiped the hands/feet/paws with the wipe, you place this on the special paper and as if by magic the print appears! Once you have your prints please scan or take a photo and email them to email@example.com. You can, if you prefer, post this image to us.
How we produce your Little Scribble and Little Artist Jewellery
To get wonderful results for you, we find that dark, heavy lined drawings work the best. If you already have a drawing that you would like to be preserved in fine silver, you can either scan the image and email this to firstname.lastname@example.org or send it to us. We will let you know if the quality is good enough to proceed with this process. If you do not have a favourite drawing but would like your child to create one for you, try to use a dark colour with heavy lines on a white background
All our jewellery is professionally hand engraved by a local artist. Engraving is included in the cost of the jewellery and we will engrave in Lowercase or UPPERCASE - the choice is yours. We enclose an engraving form with your kit so you can confirm the engraving so you don't have to let us know when placing your order.
