If you ask anyone "what are the best gifts they have ever received?" their reply will most likely be those gifts that were given from the heart. These kinds of gifts carry so much meaning and can be treasured throughout the years.
My hand made jewellery captures memories forever, I can create a stunning family keepsakes and unique personal gift for you to treasure.
I can capture your precious memories of tiny feet and hands or transform your childs drawing into beautiful bespoke jewellery which can be cherished.
We offer a full range of personalised gifts. If there is something specific that you want but can’t see please contact us as other options are available.
How does it Work?
After placing your order online you will be sent a kit to take a finger print. The price of the handmade jewellery includes the cost of sending a kit out to you, a postage paid envelope to return the print and the cost of sending the finished piece.
If you are a non UK customer there will be an extra charge to cover the international postage cost.
Once your items are completed and ready for dispatch, if you have provided an email address, we will advise you prior to dispatch.
All of the hand made solid silver charms are formed from using PMC (Precious Metal Clay). This is pure silver in a clay form combined with a binding agent and water. Once your order is received I will send you one of our very easy to use impression packs and instructions.
When I receive your prints I make a mould to transfer your prints into the silver clay. The clay is then dried, engraved, sanded and fired. The binding agent burns away leaving 99.9% pure silver. The Charm is then polished and boxed.
The charm can be hallmarked though it is not requirement on jewellery that weighs less than 7.78grams. If you would like your charm hallmarked please see the FAQ and contact me for more information.
Transferring a hand, foot, baby scan, kiss, child’s drawing or paw prints onto jewellery
You can scan and email, or photocopy and post your drawing or print. You can obtain an image of your hand or foot print by inking or painting the palm or foot and pressing this onto a piece of WHITE paper, try to avoid using yellow, the better the image at this stage, the better the end result. You don’t have to send the original.
Alternatively I can send you a free of charge inkless wipe kit. The inkless wipe kits are easy to use and mess free.
The pack has a non-toxic and mess free inkless wipe and two sheets of special coated paper. This is Non-toxic and safe to use. It was developed in the USA to footprint newborn babies for identification. It’s clean and easy to use - No paint or ink required so no mess!!
Rub the wipe onto the hand, foot or paw and then pressed onto the paper, as a result a perfect print is make without any of the mess of using paint.
If you are sending a child’s drawing try and choose one with strong lines. Detailed pictures don’t work as well as the picture is shrunk and some detail can be lost. Stick men work well with strong black lines. We do not need the original a photocopy will work well.
The print is scanned, edited and resized. A negative is then made and from that a stamp is created under an ultra violet lamp. This is then transformed into a beautiful piece of jewellery.
I keep your stamp for 2 years should you wish to purchase something else at a later date.
Fingerprint/Baby Nail impression pack
The impression pack contains a moulding compound, which comes in two pots. The compound should be combined until only one colour can be seen, then rolled into a ball. Your finger is then pressed into the compound to create a fingerprint impression. The compound should then be left to harden before placing back into the supplied packaging for postage back to me.
Instructions for using the impression kit
Remove the compound from the pots and combined both parts and mix well until there’s is no veining or streaking and only one colour can be seen. Work quickly to avoid the compound curing before use. Roll into a ball and place on a flat surface. Press your finger into the compound, wait 1 Minute, then carefully remove. Be careful not to use the tip of your finger as you are trying to capture the full finger print. Allow the compound to harden before placing back into the supplied packaging.
Instructions for using an inkless wipe kit.
Rub the wipe onto the hand, foot or paw and then press onto the paper, and remove. If you want a second try I have enclosed a 2nd piece of paper. Return to the address supplied.

EXCLUSIONS OF LIABILITY
The customer acknowledges that it has been advised that the production process used for fingerprint items is inappropriate for children less than 2 years. Therefore we recommend hand or foot prints until after 2 years of age.
We cannot guarantee that any person of any age will produce a well defined fingerprint. This varies from person to person, regardless of age.
The customer acknowledges that due to the purity of fine silver .999 jewellery is softer than .925 silver and therefore needs to be handled with special care. If worn every day the item may show signs of wear and tear and the detail may fade. This is more prevalent with charm bracelets, rings and keyring’s which are more prone to being knocked against hard surfaces.
