Thumbies are jewelry keepsakes crafted from the actual fingerprint, footprint or handprints of people we hold dear.
From a two-dimensional ink or scanned print. Meadow Hill’s artisans create a three-dimensional wax model that is then cast in 14k gold, sterling silver or white bronze using the ancient art of lost wax casting. Polished and engraved, perhaps embellished with a stone or chain, these one-of-a-kind keepsakes connect us to the people we love.
The higher the contrast is in the print you take, the better the detail will be in your finished keepsake Our artisans select the portion of your two-dimensional print, the portion that has the most unique characteristics. This area is then cast; the finished product replicates the ridges and life lines in that part of the original print. The images shown on each page have been sized to show the features.
Meadow Hill works with a network of funeral service providers who assist families with the collection of final fingerprints, presenting the Thumbies product, and placing keepsake orders. Ask your funeral home to contact us should they need assistance.
