By special request, we are now able to create child Handprint Pendants! This is an adorable gift for Dad or Grandpa as well as a fun memorable project for your family to do together.
Real handprint jewelry is a memorable way to preserve your child's handprint. After you have fun creating all your handprints using washable finger paint, choose your favorite one and then email us a close up photo of the print! If we approve the print, we will then turn your child's handprint into a special keepsake to wear or keep in your memory box.
FRONT ENGRAVING (raised engraving)
BACK ENGRAVING (deep engraving)
The backside of this pendant can be left blank or can be deep engraved with any text of your choice. We can fit up to 5 lines of text with 13 characters (letters, numbers, punctuation) per line.
To create a handprint simply use washable black or dark blue finger paint and press your child's hand into the paint and then firmly press the same hand onto a white piece of unlined paper. Then take a photo with your camera phone and email us the print to review before ordering.
For best results, please take a photo in good lighting (no shadows if possible) with the camera in focus on the print. The best way is to tape the paper to the wall and take the photo straight on. Tap the center of your phone to be sure the handprint is in nice sharp focus.
After your order is placed, we will begin digitizing your the handprint. Once the artwork is created we will send an artwork proof for you to approve before creating the pendant. We will email your custom artwork proof within 2-3 business days (Monday-Friday).
HOW IT'S MADE
What is Raised Engraving?
This handcrafted pendant features our signature engraving style called Raised Engraving. Our raised engraving is created by removing hundreds of fine layers of metal so that the letters and graphic literally pop out of the metal blank. This extensive process involves removing much more metal than our standard deep engraving and each piece generally takes 1-2 full hours just to engrave depending on the design.
Individually handcrafted, we sculpt our pendants by hand buffing and polishing the edges and sides of the blank to a fine finish using a variety of hand-finishing techniques.
Avoid Harsh Cleaners, & Chlorine Bleach
To clean, a couple of drops of mild liquid soap and warm water is all you need
Use this solution with a soft cloth to gently wipe it clean,
Always clean with the grain of the metal.
After cleaning rinse in clean water and then blot dry with a clean cloth.
Avoid Water & Saltwater
We recommend removing your jewelry when showering, exercising, or swimming to avoid soap or sediment build up inside your intricate dark grey engraving. To keep your pendant looking new we recommend avoiding water at all times.
