Paw prints on a charm

 

Hand on Heart Jewellery

I think over time I have pretty much admitted that I love having Sally personalised items, I remember for my 22nd birthday my parents asked me what I wanted, they wanted it to be something special as my 21st had gone a little awry. In my searches I came across a very talented artist and decided I needed to have Sally’s portrait done and that still hangs on my wall as a much loved piece today.

There’s a couple of things I still want to get over the years so come but I can finally say that list is one item down, as I was lately lucky enough to receive a gift pack for Hand on Heart Jewellery to turn Sally’s paw print into a beautiful piece of jewellery.

While they offer a number of different options, as to what you can have your paw print placed on, I was given the paw print charm bead which is just perfect for putting onto my Pandora bracelet.

Each of the jewellery pieces comes with a free inkless print kit, with which all you need to do is rub the paw with the included wipe and then press it down on to the special paper.

Now let me tell you it is hard to get a wiggly squiggly dog to get hold still while you try and get a good print; in fact our attempt looked like this.

Could you believe that they managed to turn one of those, into the clean print you see in the top picture? I can definitely say they managed to work a bit of magic there, I really didn’t think they would manage to clean it up.

So if like me you were put off by the prospect of needing a clean print and you have a squirmy dog, try not to worry too much, as Hand on Heart Jewellery are great at cleaning up images (although I would totally suggest checking to see if your pooch has furry paws before you start, as trimming them if they do will help a lot).

But what does the finished product look like?

Isn’t it gorgeous – it’s actually double sided as while the one side has her paw print on, the other has her name, the charm itself is made from sterling silver and it will fit onto most major charm bracelets including Pandora, Lovelinks and Chamilia.

I absolutely adore the fact I can wear Sal’s paw on a bracelet, that I often buy charms for on special occasion (and hey what’s more special than the lovely pooch Sal).

While I couldn’t pick it up on the camera there is so much detail to the paw print – you aren’t just looking at the shape alone, you can see the unique texturing of the paw, which I think just makes it extra life like. After all it’s like a finger print, the outline alone is nothing, it’s the shapes inside that distinguish it.

What’s more Hand on Heart Jewellery keep all prints on file, so if you ever fancy reordering, or getting another item with your paw / hand or foot print on you don’t need to worry about trying to take another print.

One thing I didn’t realise you could get was your pets nose print, which Hand on Heart Jewellery can put on to a keyring – I definitely need one of those soon I think.

The paw print charm bead costs £75 and of course can be ordered from the Hand on Heart Jewellery website.

What do you think of this beautiful bead, is it something you would get of your pet?

    I think that is the cutest thing! How funny about your attempts to get the paw print. Thinking about it, I’m not sure how my mum’s dog would feel about doing paw prints. I’d probably have to get someone to tempt her to walk across some paper for a treat or something!! x
