Perfecting the FINGERPRINT
The custom FINGERPRINT necklaces are quickly becoming a fan favorite. Each one is so sweet and shows the personality of each child… I mean, no two are alike. How cool and special are they. I wanted to capture a couple of cuties in the process so I reached out to two people I knew wanted to get their little nuggets’ fingerprints captured.
First I contacted my friend Gray Benko. I knew she wanted a slightly more delicate version of the traditional fingerprints I had done before. Although, she deferred to me in the end for the perfect size, I decided to try to modify hers some to make them as thin and little as possible without losing any of the special quality. I am BURSTING to see what Gray thinks of them. They are so cute and her precious kiddos, Farris and Charlie are such characters and Gray incredibly lovely and an awesome mom.
The second person I wanted to send a test kit to was Marina Squerciati from Chicago PD. She had contacted us about a fingerprint necklace for her little girl. Marina is such a beauty and so kind and her daughter is little, so we thought it was a perfect test client. Her fingerprints turned out so cute and Marina sent some precious videos and pics of them capturing it with out kit.
Each kit comes with easy instructions for capturing each child’s fingerprint. The imprints don’t have to be perfect. That is often what makes them so special. A couple of times one has looked nothing like the other it is paired with, and I have asked the parents if they want me to alter them to make the necklace more uniform. It is typically indicative of the child’s personality and they want to leave it just as it is… which I love. These necklaces are so much fun, and getting them to clients makes me super happy.
Hope you all had a Happy Mother’s Day!
