And there is another really great reason to make to thumbprints and this is taking a bit of dark turn here but I think it’s an important idea. When my Dad was near the end of his life in 2013 I got his thumbprint. I didn’t put much thought into what if would look like as jewelry, I just grabbed a chunk of silver and pressed his thumb into it. It is the only tangible thing I have of his and it means the world to me. I can fit my thumb right in his and I do that often. So, I guess what I am trying to say here, is don’t wait until it’s too late to make these. Make them now, give them as gifts, someday they will be treasures to your loved ones. The ultimate memorial jewelry.

The metal now has a consistency of clay. Let your imagination run wild for a minute about what you can do with clay that you could not do with a piece of hard metal....
