Christmas commission

I think this has to be my favourite silver fingerprint commission to date. The customer was keen on the pendants hanging along the chain rather than graduated sizes on top of one another. She requested aquamarine (which would be my choice) and a handmade silver flower and leaf. The two outer prints are of six year old twins and the central one is of a ten year old.

This is a new necklace style for me and I think I'll be offering this as an alternative to my other fingerprint designs. It'll reach my customer in time for you-know-when (thanks to the rather wonderful Royal Mail special delivery service), which is a lovely thought. I'm hoping she might wear it on the big day.

It's beautiful, Emma! The fingerprints bracelet you made for my daughter's birthday looks so pretty on her...she was wearing it when we went out with them one evening last week, and it really is a lovely creation.....I'm sure she will be wearing it on Christmas Day too!

Really, really lovely.

*SO* good to see you all today. I think I am having a bit of a sugar crash now though - I feel the need for cheese. No, really.

It's gorgeous Emma, I love the way the 'charms' are spread along the front rather than being gathered together in a bunch.

Emma, I love this piece. My granddaughters moved 2000 miles away.. I'm thinking when they come back for a visit I will have them give me their fingerprints on my silver clay.

So lovely. I like the iridescent effect and think they look beautiful arranged this way.

It's beautiful, Emma. What a wonderful idea for a necklace. Can I also say how much I love the phrase "Royal Mail"? It has a certain ring to it, much more so that "Canada Post". Best wishes for a merry Christmas!

Thank you, Emma, I am the delighted recipient of this fingerprint necklace. It's even more beautiful in "real life" as it sparkles and moves when I move. It's something I will always treasure.
