One unique interpretation of this trend is jewelry that incorporates a fingerprint. Fingerprints are completely unique to each person, making them a fitting memento of a loved one. When placed in jewelry, these patterns are a contemporary way to keep someone close to your heart. Fingerprints can be reproduced using paper and ink that is then preserved using glass cabochons, Omni Gel™ or ICE Resin®. Metal clay is also a great medium for capturing fingerprints. Use birthstones, charms or other meaningful components to add further personalization to this jewelry style.
Fingerprint jewelry makes a wonderful gift for Mother's Day, weddings, anniversaries and other important dates. To get started, take inspiration from the featured projects.

"Hi, I enjoyed reading the article on how to make the Fingerprint Bracelet by Tammy. However I got lost in the cut outs. It would have been helpful to have drawings on how the construction was done along with the words. Sincerely,"
"Gee, it's too bad that not all jewelry can be made with fingerprint identification to protect the owner especially, when it pertains to theft. A great identification tool used in criminal cases."
"I just wanted to say THANK YOU for the article on Fingerprint Jewelry. This is what I'm wanting to do, but kinda nervous about it. Thanks so much :)"
"Great idea for the fingerprints just in time for mother's day."
"that gives me another idea.....many years ago a sculptor made fingerprints out of metal to hang on the wall.....could do the same on a small scale with wire!"
