After receiving your fingerprint (see the Taking Prints tab, above), a second impression is taken in silicone, which is then used to place the print into soft silver clay. The fingerprint is cut to your ordered shape and size before being left to air dry.
Each piece is then hand engraved with your child’s name and sanded in readiness for firing. The silver impressions are then fired in our kiln to 800 degrees where the organic binder burns away, leaving 99.9% pure silver. The pieces are finally tumbled and polished ready for packaging and posting back to you.
