Thumbies offers hand-crafted keepsake jewelry and accessories personalized with a loved one’s fingerprint, handprint, footprint, paw print, nose print, handwriting, and/or cremated remains.
Thumbies® fingerprint keepsakes, and Buddies Pet Keepsakes®, are designed and hand-crafted by jewelers and artisans in Woodstock, IL. Their product line allows for personalization using a fingerprint, handprint, footprint, paw print, or nose print. Or, memorialize your loved one with a small bit of cremated remains you can keep close with you at all times. In absence of either of these options, many people choose the handwriting or soundwave (e.g., from a voicemail). Every keepsake has engraving options.
Thumbies® also offers fully custom jewelry. Popular requests are a shape unique to someone’s loved one, such as a football helmet pendant, a penguin, or other beloved icon. Or, we can add diamonds or other additional features to an existing design to make it a one-of-a-kind design.
The artisans at Thumbies® take pride in the quality of the keepsakes they make, and the comfort and meaning they provide to families. The fingerprints are not lasered onto pendants, but instead Thumbies® creates a unique individual mold for each keepsake/fingerprint, and uses an ancient technique called lost-wax casting. Once the mold is created, molten precious metal is poured in to create a one-of-a-kind 3D model of your loved one’s print.
