Fingerprint jewellery made from ink and paper prints

Usually my fingerprint jewellery is made from a mould of the finger, this produces an exact replica of the fingerprint in the silver.  However, I am sometimes asked to make jewellery for customers who are only able to provide prints on paper.

In order to make a piece from a paper print, a very different technique is needed.  The method is similar to that used for hand and footprints jewellery and involves the same equipment to reproduce the print in the silver.

The results as you can see below are very different. The 1st photo shows a print made from a mould, this print shows fine detail and the shape of the finger.
The second piece is made using a paper print, as you can see it is flat. The print lines are enhanced and blackened for a very different effect.

Making charms with paper prints is a much more skilled process than the mould method, and a service that not many artists offer.  The prints do need to be clear and as detailed as possible, this method definitely works better with adult prints.

This type of jewellery can be made with existing prints, taken using ink or if you want to take new prints I can send an inkless wipe to take highly detailed mess free prints.

If you have prints that you would like to use, you can send a black and white photocopy to me in the post, or scan the prints and email them to me.

  1. Good evening

    I am interested in getting a piece of fingerprint jewellery made in memory of my Dad who has passed away.

    The chapel of rest provided us with ink copies of his prints would this suffice as it is not possible to get a mould as we have already had the body cremated.

    Thank you.

      I am very sorry to hear your sad news, I am able to work with ink prints providing they are nice and clear with good strong lines. Unfortunately smudged prints do not work very well. If you’d like me to take a look juts send a photo of the prints over to me via email. Thanks Gemma
