An impression of your loved ones fingerprints are carefully pressed into BronzeClay to make this special dragonfly. Once the bronze clay in fired in a kiln, it transforms into solid bronze metal.
After fired, I hand patina the wings just slightly. This helps them stand out a bit more, and in the right light, gives them a subtle touch of irredecence.
This dragonfly was made from a 9 and 6 yr olds fingers. Your dragonfly will vary slightly from the one pictured, but will be as special and one of a kind as the fingers that helped to make it!
Upon completion of your purchase, I will mail you an easy to use molding kit to get the fingerprint impressions of your little ones. Once completed, mail back to me and I will make your dragonfly pendant.
The bronze does shrink a little during the firing process, so your prints will be slightly small than the actual size I get back from you.
This pendant measures approx. 1 in x 3/4 in. Yours may be a touch small or even larger depending on the size of the prints I get back from you.
This listing is for the pendant only, but I would be happy to visit with you about options for making it into a necklace.
