Covid-19 Update 02/08/2022:
I am still open for business but these are the precautions I am taking:
If you’ve purchased a handprint/footprint/Paw Print charm, You no longer need to send the prints back to me if you wish to stay indoors, instead take a photo and send them to me via FB messenger or a DM on Instagram. Alternatively email me a copy by sending them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
For Fingerprint Jewellery, as usual, a Pre-Paid Self Addressed Envelope will be enclosed with your order to return your prints.
All orders are sent by post. I offer Free UK delivery on all orders.
Making the charms from Silver means I am constantly washing my hands so rest assured all the necessary precautions are taken to ensure my hands are clean when making/handling your charms.
Your safety is the upmost importance to me so if you have any further questions regarding the above, please contact me, Loretta at email@example.com
The pictures on the website, our social media pages and marketing material are for illustration purposes only. Each item is tailor-made to your requirements and is crafted by hand and therefore will always be unique to every customer.
Fine (Pure) Silver
All jewellery keepsake items are made from Fine Silver which is 99.9% Pure Silver. This type of silver is delicate and we recommend you remove your jewellery when bathing, showering and doing manual work such as housework.
All individual pieces are handmade; as a result shapes and sizes can vary.
All of our pieces are put through a careful and delicate finishing and polishing process, to achieve a beautiful finish, but one that is never going to be flawless.
Very faint scratches will be visible if looked at closely. This in no way takes away from the beauty of our charms/gifts, and you can expect a very high standard of finish.
Fingerprint/Hand and Footprint Jewellery
Fingerprints typically develop after 6 months of age and babies younger than this may not have defined prints.
For younger babies we would recommend you choose a handprint or footprint charm or wait until they are a little older.
Whether you decide on a fingerprint, hand or footprint jewellery, it will be unique to your child so we are unable to change or enhance the definition.
From the date we receive your prints back, please allow 14-21 days for your jewellery to be made. If you need your item sooner, please send an email with the details. Please note this may incur an extra charge.
Engraved Jewellery and Gifts
We will start making your item from the date we receive your completed prints it will normally take 14 – 21 days for your item to be made.
This may take longer if your order includes items from our Fine (Pure) Silver Range and there maybe a delay in completing your order during busier periods such as Mother’s Day and Christmas.
We will keep you informed on the progress of your order and will notify you when your order is complete and has been posted out to you.
Should you need your item sooner, please get in touch before placing an order with us.
Once an order has been placed, a print kit will be sent to you with clear instructions on how to take your prints and how to return them to us. If you are still unsure of how to take the prints, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.
The fingerprint, handprint or footprint detail on the charms we create can only be as good as the print you have taken. We cannot improve the detail of the print. If you are not happy with the prints you have taken, you can order another print Fingerprint kit for £5.00 or a Handprint/Footprint Kit for £10. When you return the prints to us, we will take it that you are happy with the prints and we will proceed with making your item(s).
