Friday Finds: Designs By Kerry

have you heard of Designs by Kerry ? if not, prepared to be excited when you visit her site ! if there is a special kiddo in your life whose childhood you want to be able to freeze frame for just a moment, you will want to check this out !

i lucked out to have been introduced to Kerry’s gorgeous work about 2 years ago by fellow Purple Eggplant, Mel. what’s so very special about this jewlery is that Kerry captures your child’s finger print and turns it into a beautiful silver pendant.

IMG_7939Kerry can create a single oval pendant, a heart pendant out of 2 fingerprints, or custom men’s dog tag type pendants using Art Clay Silver.

childhood forever captured.

what’s even cooler about Designs by Kerry, is that this is a home based business whicj means kerry is able to stay home with her own kiddos …while capturing memories for the rest of us !

gotta love supporting other mommas.

if you are local to Ottawa or surrounding areas { or making a trip here }, this is a definite mommas day wish list item ! i was lucky enough when’s C’s daddy bought me a pendant for my birthday. and amazingly, he was able to secretly pull off two trips to Kerry’s home ! it still stands out in my memory how C’s daddy was amazed at how “nice” she was.

having a pendant made involves 2 trips, but only one is needed with the kiddo. one trip for the clay impression and then once more to pick up the masterpiece after Kerry has shaped, sanded, fired, and polished the 99.9% pure silver fingerprint pendant !

on memy C thinks its very cool that its her finger print – a much smaller one – that i wear almost everyday around my neck. and that is also what is wonderful about this – it makes perfect everyday wear.

{ Designs by Kerry also creates sterling and natural stone earrings, bracelets and necklaces. full price list can be found on her site. We would love if you would let her know Purple Eggplant sent you over ! }
