Fingerprints are special and unique just like the person they belong to. Imprinting your loved ones fingerprints into silver jewelry creates a heirloom quality keepsake that can be passed down for generations. Patina Creek Silver is excited to offer fingerprint jewelry events. Whereas most sellers create jewelry from paper prints or molds, we use a special process and impress your loved one’s finger directly into the silver. The piece that is touched is the same one that becomes your special keepsake. It not only adds to the sentimental value of the piece but ensures that you get the best quality fingerprint possible.

As a Mom I know how challenging it can be to wrangle overstimulated children while trying to make a decision and place an order. We are excited to offer you the option of ordering your jewelry before an event from the comfort of your own home. I've included a variety of large product photos to help you in designing your new favorite piece of jewelry. In addition to the added convenience of online ordering, preorders are eligible to receive 10% off with the purchase of a bundle.
To receive the 10% discount you will need to add a bundle to your cart.* This option is available on every product page under the "Add to Cart' button.
- Choose the "SELECT BUNDLED PRODUCTS" button
- LOCATION - "add" the event you plan to attend and select "next"
- CHARMS - "add" the fingerprint charms you would like to purchase and then select "next".
- BASE & BLING - "add" the bracelet, chains or birthstones that you would like to purchase. Or add “NONE” if you only want to purchase fingerprint charms. Then select the "Add to Cart" button.
- If discounted prices do not show up in the cart they will be calculated on the CHECKOUT screen. If you have any issues please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- That's it! After placing your order all you need to do is show up at the event and we will take your fingerprints, finish your jewelry, and mail it back to you.
*The bundle discount is only available for customers who preorder fingerprint jewelry online before an event. Orders placed in person at fingerprint jewelry events are not eligible for this promotion.
WHAT IF I PLACE AN ORDER BUT SOMETHING COMES UP AND WE CAN'T MAKE IT TO THE FINGERPRINT EVENT?
I know life happens! Please contact me at email@example.com after missing an event to let me know if you'd like to try to attend an upcoming event or if you'd like to cancel the order. If I don't hear from you within two weeks of the missed event your order will be automatically canceled and money refunded.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY JEWELRY AFTER THE FINGERPRINT EVENT?
You should receive your order within three weeks of attending the event. Progress updates will be available online. If you need your order sooner for a special gift or occasion please let us know when you have your fingerprints taken. Rush orders are available for an additional fee. Expedited shipping options might be suggested as well.
CAN YOU MAKE FINGERPRINT JEWELRY FROM MOLDS OR PAPER PRINTS?
Not at this time. I am one of only a handful of artists in the country who makes fingerprint jewelry in person at events. Since there are already hundreds of sellers who make fingerprint jewelry from paper and molds I decided to stop offering that service in order to make more events available to you. If you need to have fingerprint jewelry made from an alternative method I would suggest checking Etsy online or visiting RM Johnson & Sons in Salem.
HOW CAN WE HAVE FINGERPRINT JEWELRY MADE IF WE CAN'T MAKE IT TO AN EVENT?
MY GRANDKIDS ARE GOING TO BE IN TOWN FOR A BIRTHDAY PARTY. CAN YOU COME AND TAKE THEIR FINGERPRINTS?
DO YOU DO PRIVATE FINGERPRINT JEWELRY PARTIES?
I understand that it's not always possible to make it to a fingerprint jewelry event so I offer private fingerprint jewelry sessions. Private sessions are $40 and one fee covers everyone who attends the session (even if they place a separate order.) Visit Private Fingerprint Sessions for more information.
All items from Patina Creek Silver are hand made one of a kind works of art. It is expected that there may be slight imperfections and that no two items will look alike even if it is the same fingerprint. All items created are done by hand and involve hours of personal attention to make these heirloom quality custom pieces.
Fingerprint items: May be slightly modified due to blurry fingerprints or added marks made during the fingerprint capture. Some items will have a portion of a fingerprint and not the whole print due to item size.
Babies and Senior Citizens: Babies and some young children’s fingerprints are fairly underdeveloped especially before age 4. You may prefer using the thumb or big toe. Baby fingerprint lines may appear faint on the finished piece, however, you will still get an adorable imprint/indentation of the finger/toe. This also applies to fingerprints which have had a lot of experience (senior citizens)
Handwriting and Hand drawn images: Images are engraved by hand and will be made as original as possible but please be aware that some slight variations may occur during the engraving process.
Returns and Exchanges: If you receive a damaged product or one with an error, please contact us within 14 days so we can work to make it right. Aside from that, all sales are final. Personalized, made-to-order items cannot be exchanged or returned. We reserve the rights to accept or refuse the return or exchange requests. Some cases may incur additional fees.
Warranty: Chains and bracelets are covered against defects by a 6 month manufacturers warranty. Please contact us for instructions to return for replacement if breakage occurs during this time period.
