Back in the late 70’s and early 80’s when I founded and owned Joel Bagnal Goldsmiths in Wellesley and Concord, Massachusetts, we were the first shop of which I was aware to use soft wax to make jewelry (pendants, rings, bracelets) with finger or thumb print impressions.
In some ways it’s the most personal thing we do. Over the years we have marked weddings, birthdays, anniversaries or simply gifts of love in gold or silver.
At one end of Life’s spectrum we routinely take prints of toddlers as young as two months old. At the other end I have had the high honor of pressing a wax imprint of two gentlemens’ fingers after they have passed.
Come to our shop and let us take impressions of your prints, or if needed, we have both kits and How To videos to work with you long distance.
