How those little ones leave their mark on us forever! This piece can be made with your child's *actual* handprint or footprint (the kind they take in ink at the hospital or you can do at home) or I can use a representative print. I will take the image, shrink it down, and etch it deeply into solid sterling silver.
♥ A Wonderful & Special Gift Item! ♥
♥ Also a beautiful memorial for those who have lost a child.♥
Your choice of words and symbols on the opposite side (you can get an idea of fonts and what would fit from the photos) in solid sterling silver.
Please see font and symbol examples here:
The solid silver discs are then soldered together to make one fantastic piece (I can leave them separate upon request). The total size is about 1" x 3/4". Suspended from a sterling silver chain - your choice of length. If no length is indicated, a 16" necklace with 2" extender will be sent.
HOW IT WORKS:
♥ To order your necklace, just buy this item, then leave your with your desired font & phrase in the comments. Then, I will provide you with an email address to send a file or a snail mail address to send an actual copy of your child's hand/footprint. If you have any questions at all, just convo us! I will send you a file that shows about what it will look like on the metal. Remember, it will not show detail like ink will, but it will be an actual representation of your child's hand.
About the Reverse Side:
♥ This item is hand-stamped, and the letters will not be perfectly straight - it's part of the charm of this artisan item :) Additionally, stamping is a much deeper impression, and also blackened, to be much more visible than traditional engraving. It will last longer, and will not "rub off" like some engraving. We have other hand-stamped items available in our store, if you would like to see more examples.
