HOW DOES IT WORK?
Mold Kit - Kit includes a molding compound with which you can create a mold of your loved one's fingerprint. The mold can be used over and over to create many pieces of jewellery. This is ideal to take impressions of kids, pets and particularly those loved ones who are sick or who may not have much time left. This is the type of mold that our local Children's Hospital uses to take fingerprints from their patients. In our kit there is enough mold compound to take at least 3 unique fingerprints.
I'M NOT CRAFTY, CAN I DO THIS?
Taking a print is easy with this kit. Simply mix the mold compound then press the fingerprint into the mold and remove after a few seconds. Contact us to get the mold to us. We take an impression by hand from the mold you send to us, then we cast those impressions into gold or silver and create your fingerprint jewelry to order.
WHAT WILL THEY LOOK LIKE?
After about an hour you can see and touch the finished mold. It may be difficult to see the prints but you can feel them or use putty or clay to press into the piece to see the prints. This is similar to how we create the finished fingerprint jewelry from your mold. The resulting pieces are soft organic shapes that convey the warmth of handmade pieces.The finished pieces tend to be wide flat ovals.
Fingerprint and thumbprint pendants are soft, natural, and beautifully wearable pieces and are meant to represent the organic, living impression of the person who did the print, so the soft shapes and tiny blemishes add to the character of the piece.
Babies and very young children have shallower and less developed fingerprints, so the results vary depending on the fingerprint itself. We recommend getting the first crease where the finger bends into the impression. Some prints may be less visible, but you will have an imprint of your child’s actual finger or big toe regardless. We cast the exact piece you send us so the result is a very personal and warm impression created by the actual touch of your child or loved one.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
3 Weeks. It takes us about 10 business days to create your one of a kind fingerprint jewellery. Shipping times are on top of that. Shipping upgrades are available.
CAN I GIVE THE KIT ITSELF AS A GIFT?
Kids love making these personalized gifts for mom or dad, aunties and grandmothers. You can give the finished jewellery as a gift, or just give the kit itself and a gift certificate for the fingerprint jewellery! It's the perfect baby shower gift. There is nothing to expire in the kit, so the recipient can keep it until they are ready to use it.
RESULTS VARY BUT THEY ARE ALL PRECIOUS
When looking at your impressions, bear in mind that the resulting impressions are soft, organic shapes that compliment the unique, natural shape of your own loved one's finger, and your aim is to get a genuine impression not a perfect shape.
