Keepsake silver fingerprint pendant making kit
Unleash your inner creativity and make your own fine silver fingerprint necklace and preserve one of life's most precious memories in an eco-friendly solid fine silver pendant. The kit and instructions come packaged in a beautiful box to make the perfect present – with optional wrapping available. If capturing the fingerprint of a very young child, please be aware that the definition of their fingerprint does not tend to develop until nearly a year old. No previous experience is required as the full-colour step-by-step guide takes you through the whole process - from taking the fingerprint mould, to firing the pendant and finally developing a high shine finish and fixing it to a chain. The necklace uses the magic of silver clay which is easy to use as well as being a wonderful eco-friendly product. It is made from 100% recycled particles of silver ground up into a powder and mixed with an organic binder to form a clay-like substance. When fired it transforms into 99.9% solid fine silver. The kit also provides access to a closed Facebook group which includes additional supporting videos, lots of inspiration and information, and where you can ask questions. Please note that your pendant will need to be fired on a gas hob. If you don't have a gas hob in your kitchen or a camping stove, you will need to purchase an additional firing kit available here. Keep and reuse this kit and top it up with a few extra materials to make additional fingerprint jewellery pieces. Alternatively, you can advance your skills with a selection of mini follow-on project kits which reuses the tools. The follow-on project kits come with more clay, materials, and instructions to make additional items of jewellery. The top-up kits include: - Fingerprint pendant making kit (additional materials to make another pendant) - Fingerprint keyring making kit (additional materials to make one keyring) - Replica acorn pendant making kit - Seashell pendant making kit - Textured heart bracelet making kit For the full range of kits see https://www.rebeccaoxenham.com/jewellery-making-kit Rebecca Oxenham Jewellery is inspired by nature so we want to protect our world for future generations. As well as using recycled silver and eco-friendly packaging, we also donate to One Tree Planted who will plant a tree for every product sold. Using recycled silver helps to limit the number of metals that need to be mined. This means less waste in landfills and helps slow the consumption of natural resources. It also avoids the use of child labour in mines. The box, tissue paper, packaging and postal wrapper are all made from recycled materials or can be recycled. Enjoy making your own unique, meaningful and beautiful jewellery that can be treasured forever!
