Ever since the world of fingerprint jewellery took off, I've always loved the thought of having my own, especially when I had children. There is something so incredibly special about fingerprints. With every one's marking being totally unique, you never get 2 the same. Seeing hand and footprints on kid's paintings is such an amazing thing to look back on, so why not encapsulate that feeling in silver?
So after a lot of hinting that fell on deaf ears, I looked for some UK based jewellers that specialise in fingerprint pendants and found Liv and Lottie. After telling my husband what he would be getting me for my Birthday, I awaited the kit in the post! I wanted 3 fingerprints initially: Betsy, Mama and my sister, who lives all the way in Philadelphia. Luckily my parents were off for a visit, so I gave her part of the kit to them. You receive little clear pots, which was a blessing as they could safely store her imprint inside for travelling back to the UK!
The personalised necklace turned out beautifully as you can see! You can even personalise the front and back of the silver pendants with a name, initials, birthdate etc.
I am planning to get Richard, Pa and my fingerprints done near Christmas.
After being such a satisfied customer, I thought I would ask Liv and Lottie a few questions!
1.) What got you into jewellery making? How long have you been doing it?
I came across fingerprint jewellery when I was carrying my 2nd child and I decided to give it a go. I will always remember working with that first piece of silver clay and after a little practice I had created my very first beautiful silver charm with my eldest daughter’s fingerprint. I have been making fingerprint jewellery for just over 2 years now and I love creating each special print. It has also given me the freedom to work around my family.
2.) Why did you decide to create fingerprint jewellery? Why do you think it has become so popular?
I think I was drawn to the fingerprint jewellery especially because of its closeness with people and that feeling that you are creating a special memory in a keepsake for someone. I think fingerprint jewellery has become so popular now as its a great way for mothers wanting to capture there tiny ones prints and they also make a beautiful memorial piece.
3.) What has been your favourite or most memorable order/ project to do and why?
Its difficult to pin point a favourite piece it would probably be the first ones I created capturing my own children's prints, and they also symbolise the beginning of Liv And Lottie’s Little Charms so they will always be very special to me.
4.) Tell us a little about you!
Liv And Lottie’s Little Charms was created by Jodi Fusiara. The name was inspired by my two beautiful daughters and I have been creating personalised jewellery for over 2 years now.
