Finger Print Jewellery

Jewellery with a personal touch. 

This kit is a beautiful way to capture a moment with a loved one. We provide you with a soft ball of wax, which can be pressed in to anything from a baby's nail print, a grandparent's finger print, or an impression from a meaningful object. Whatever the impression you make, can be cast in silver or gold and returned to you on a necklace, or as a ring.

Instructions

Below you will find instructions on how to make your finger print jewellery from our finger print kit. Any marks, shapes or impressions you make in the wax will be visible in the cast. 

If you are interested in either gold plating or casting your piece in solid gold, please indicate your wish when returning your package, otherwise the piece will be silver. 

Gold plating costs 300,- per piece

Solid gold prices vary depending on the weight of wax and gold. 

01

Soften with heat

  • Remove the ball of wax from the packaging and drop it in to a glass of warm water. The water should be noticeably warm but not boiling. 

  • Leave it to heat and soften for around 1-2 minutes.

Ready, set, press

  • Press the wax against the area you want to make an impression of. 

  • To make a fingerprint, squeeze the wax between the finger and thumb, forming the finger print impression.

  • When children are very small they have very faint fingerprints, so if you cannot see, you could try an impression of their nail.To do so, simply press the ball against their nail. Your fingerprint will appear on the other side, which makes a nice connection between two people. 

  • You could also experiment with making impressions of teeth marks, stones, a dog's claw or other objects with an interesting shape or significant meaning to you.

Oops!

If you are not happy with your print, simply put it back in to the warm water to soften, roll it back in to a ball and try again.

Once happy with your print, leave to cool for 2 minutes.

 

Carefully place into a small zip lock bag and then place into the jewellery box from the kit. Tuck the hard seal to the bag behind the cushion inside the jewellery box, so it does not press against the soft wax print, when inside the box. (see image).

 

Be careful not to mark the wax with any additional pressure, as the wax is still soft so it can change shape.

Please include your name and address in the package, so it can be returned to you.

Delivery Address:

Asger Rygs Gade, 9, 3th, 1727 København V.

N.b. It is possible to gold plate your piece for 300,- and cast in solid gold  please indicate if you would like to do so when returning the package.
