Bespoke Imprint Silver Jewellery & Keepsakes
From affordable polymer clay key chains to 925 silver pendants, everything I create is custom made to order in my home studio in Verwood, Dorset.
Whether it's a gift for yourself or a loved one, I can offer something to suit all generations and tastes. From a memento to remember your little ones first years or a cute paw print from a beloved family pet. My handmade keyrings and lanyards are particularly great as gifts for the whole family! The range also sympathetically caters for those whose loved ones who have recently passed away; a simple fingerprint pendent can be a beautiful memorial piece.
I hand make each piece of jewellery in my home studio using your own prints, so each piece produced is completely unique for you. Simply follow the steps below to have your very own personalised keepsake or piece of jewellery
Choose the style of imprints you would like to use (finger print or full hand/foot or paw prints). Check out prices and examples above and pick your perfect jewellery or keepsake for personalisation. Finally choose the options you want i.e. shape, finish, colour, text personalisation etc

3) SEND YOUR PRINTS
Fingerprints: You are welcome to visit the Ferndown studio (by appointment) and I will take the print directly for you or you can order a print kit if you are unable to travel to us. Check out the Taking Prints section below for full instructions.
Fullprints (hand/foot/paw): You can either send an existing print you have available or take a new one - check out our Taking Prints page.
4) I GET TO WORK
When I receive your prints I will send a confirmation email and start the process of making your piece. Everything is custom made to order, and in general I advise pieces can take between 1-2 weeks to create once prints are received. I will send another email when your order is ready and has been dispatched.
If you need the item sooner I may be able to fast track your item (workload permitting), please email for details before you make your purchase. Fast track means once we receive your prints we will make and dispatch the item within 7 days, there is an additional £10 charge for this service - email me with your request before you order.
To make sure your item is delivered as safely as possible I use Royal Mail signed for UK postal services.
This service is complimentary in the UK for orders over £70, for orders less than £70 a flat fee of £4.95 is applied to each order. I will email you to let you know when your item is on its way.
All my handmade items are made to order using the prints provided, due to this I do not accept returns. If you feel your item is not as described, please contact me and I will be happy to try and resolve your issue.
Ready to wear items can be returned with 14 days of delivery in new and unused condition and in the original packaging (at the senders expense)
VISITING THE STUDIO
We are happy to welcome our customers back to the Ferndown studio where we can take a print in person to produce your piece, please contact us direct to arrange your appointment.
TAKING PRINTS AT HOME
Full Prints: You may already have a print available which you want to use for your piece, if this is the case then we can start working on your jewellery as soon as you send it in to us. You can either scan or photograph the print (in good lighting) and email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The print is best with black ink or a thin coat of dark paint on a white background - if not black, a dark colour is best.
You can also take a print using a home scanner/photocopier (most modern home printers have integrated scanners), you can literally scan your hand/foot or paw, save a copy and email it to us. When taking prints from babies or pets you should make sure their palm/foot/paw is flush to the screen - don't worry if your fingerprints are visible in the scan, we can take them out in the editing phase.
Alternately, you can order a magic inkless print kit using the options available at checkout to take a print at home (instructions come with the kit). You can then scan or photograph an image of the print and email it to us at email@example.com.
Fingerprints: For the best print we recommend visiting our Ferndown studio (by appointment only), however if this is not possible we can send you a home print kit. As this print kit is a physical mould of your print you will need to package and return the print (returns label supplied), postage fee for this is not included and return postage is to be paid by the buyer.
In all instances we try to get the best and most true prints possible - occasionally we see prints which have particular smudges or smears … because we know they can be tricky to get perfect ones with wriggly little babies and toddlers … so we will then use our discretion to remove obvious extra messy bits to get the best image for your item.
