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 copper.
***A Wonderful & Special Gift Item!***
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 - you may indicate below.
The copper and silver coins are then soldered together to make one fantastic piece (I can leave them separate upon request). The total size of the pendant is about 1", and 2mm thick. Suspended from a sterling silver chain - your choice of length.
HOW IT WORKS:
♥ To order your necklace, just buy this item, indicating your wishes below. 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†contact 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.† PLEASE NOTE:† This is a labor-intensive item and may take up to FOUR WEEKS to†make before shipping.
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 "scraped" 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.
