Lilypad Loves: Fingerprint Necklace

It came, it came! My Fingerprint Necklace from Tina Steinberg came today and I love it. It is about the same size as a nickel, and LP's fingerprint is perfectly detailed. The fingerprint is very clear, all the ridge detail is captured, and the rest of the silver disk is smooth and shiny. LP's name and the date we made the fingerprint mold is engraved on the back.

The mold process was very easy, we did a few trial runs with playdough first, and wanting it perfect, I redid the actual print once. Tina Steinberg sends everything that you need to make the mold and ship it back to her, then about 2 weeks later she sends you a beautiful piece of keepsake jewelry. Lilypad Princess was excited to fit her finger right back into the silver print this morning. Here are a few detail photos, one for sizing and one so you can see the thickness of the disk. click on photos to enlarge

This is so clever! It must have been great for LP to put her little finger right into that fingerprint. Very pretty.
