How the Fingerprint Jewelry is Created
There are several methods used today to create fingerprint jewelry.
At Cremation Solutions we capture the print with an ink print on white paper. We can supply the kit to take the prints. If there is not enough time for us to mail you a kit, fingerprints may be taken using an ink pad and white paper. The thumb is usually the best finger to use. Once we select the best print, we scan it at a very high resolution and then transfer the print into wax. Our jewelry is made using the process of a lost wax casting. Engraving on the back of each piece is part of the casting process as well. Our process takes three weeks if the finished jewelry passing final quality control. The prints is kept in our data base forever, so if additional jewelry is desired, you need only give us the name of the print donor or the unique number that is on the back of each piece..
Another popular method is to capture the print in a product called precious metal clay, which allows for someone to place his or her finger on the clay. The clay is then rolled out and shaped using special forms. Then the metal clay is dried under the high heat of a gas torch or kiln. Using both the clay cutter and an emery board, the artisan can create an original piece of jewelry that will make the perfect gift.
Fingerprint Jewelry Can Be Taken Almost Anywhere
The great thing about jewelry made from a fingerprint is that the recipient can carry it with him or her. It often feels like the print donor stays with the recipient wherever he or she goes. There are many pieces of jewelry that look alike, but a custom piece of fingerprint jewelry will always be unique. By taking the time to have the piece of jewelry made, the gift giver shows that he or she actually put time, effort and thought into the gift.
Other Gifts Just Don’t Cut It
It’s very easy to give someone a gift card to a popular store. It’s also easy to grab a gift basket filled with chocolates, cookies and random knick-knacks. What is much harder is to find something that is truly unique and shows that the gift giver actually understands the recipient.
Personalized gifts are more memorable and the recipient of a fingerprint keepsake is much more likely to keep it for a long time.
Personalized Items Bring Back Memories
One of the best parts about having a long-term relationship with someone are the memories that are generated through experiences together.
