Hi Dads!  Are you looking for the perfect Mother’s day gift?  Something that says you really thought about it, something so personal that she’ll be overwhelmed when she see’s it?
You are in the right place, us women just love this stuff.  What says ‘I know how much you love our children’ more than their little hand or footprints set in a handmade piece of jewellery for her to keep with her always?

So here are my top 5 gifts for the woman in your life this Mother’s Day.

  1. Fingerprint Necklace.The fingerprint necklace is by far my best selling product, it is simple but beautiful and can be customised with different writing styles. You can even have your own children’s writing on it if you wish.
    More than one child? No problem, why not consider the cascading charms option.

  2. Handprint Charm BeadIf your partner already has a charm bracelet this could be the perfect addition to it.  The heart, start, circle and square beads can be double sided with a print on either side.   If she doesn’t already have a Pandora or similar bracelet, why not get one of my gorgeous coloured nappa leather bracelets for the bead.

  3. Fingerprint stud earringsThese are new to the range and perfect if you prefer something a bit smaller. The studs can be made with the same print or 2 different fringerprints.  I can also do these with tiny hand or footprints if you prefer.

  4. Memory LocketI can can make little fingerprint or hand and footprint charms to fit inside your memory locket.  I can supply the locket for you, or just the charms if you already have one. The beauty of these is that other charms can be added to really personalise it and make it unique.

  5. Handwriting or doodle charmLast but definitely not least is the handwriting charm.  Your child’s own message shrunk down to fit on a charm that mummy can treasure for ever.
    Can’t write just yet? No problem, this can also be done with little one’s doodles and simple drawings.

Moon fingerprint charm for Luna

I simply love it when I get asked to make special pieces that have a real back story behind them.  So when I was asked to make this moon fingerprint charm for a little girl called Luna, I simply had to find out the story.  Thank you so much Katrina for sharing with me and allowing me to share with the world.

Moon fingerprint charm

Bespoke moon fingerprint charm

When I was pregnant with my second child the only girls name that I liked was Luna.

As I approached my due date, I knew this would be the name for our baby if it was a girl.
I remember waking up in the middle of the night as the baby kicked, poked and prodded me. And as I looked out of my bedroom window, I saw the most amazing full moon high up in the sky. It was the brightest I had ever seen and took my breath away. It was so stunning that I took a photo of it and knew then that it would be the perfect name as Luna means moon in Spanish.
Coupled with the sentimental saying that my family always tell one another…love you to the moon and back…I just knew it was right name for our little girl. If I’d had another boy I would have been stuck as I had no idea what he would have been called. Ha!!
So to order a bespoke charm that has been hand crafted with my daughter’s name and fingerprint on it means the world to me and is priceless. I will wear it with pride next to my son’s heart shaped charm and will cherish it forever knowing that a little piece of my kids is with me always.
Thank you again, you are amazing!!

Small Print, Baby fingerprint jewellery made from very fine prints

Small prints can be tricky to work with

Sometimes young babies only have very small print and the lines are not always very defined.  It can be difficult to get these very fine prints into jewellery without losing definition.
I have recently been experimenting with new methods of tranferring your prints from the mould into your chose piece of fingerprint jewellery and I am pleased to say that I have found a way that is giving me consistently great results even with the smallest of prints.

When you place your order for a piece of Silver Fingerprint Jewellery you will be sent a kit which contains a two part putty. The fingerprint is taken into the putty which sets hard when the two parts are mixed to form a solid mould of your baby’s print.  If you can see lines in the mould, they will be visible on the finished piece.
