"GIFT LIKE A PRINCE"
Inspired by Pippa's gift to William and Kate you can have your own baby's hands and feet cast out of a precious metal of your choice!
With "Gift Like a Prince" you Have a Way to Preserve in Time the In-Prints of a Loved one, or your Puppy’s paw Print, replicating their Shape, Dimensions and Natural feel by Means of a Molding Process.
Behind "GIFT LIKE A PRINCE" we have Paola and Max that launched some Jewel Prototypes called "Les Liaisons" - five years ago. Paola is a Metal artist Trained in the Italian Metalwork Tradition and Max the Creative Director and its Product Manager. The Method used is Lost Wax Casting, a Centuries Old Traditional Technique, revisited by the Artist for this Specific Application.
Every jewel will tell the unique tale of a cherished memory.
"GIFT LIKE PRINCE" offers five options for the mold:
PUPPY / PET PAW print,
all available in bronze or silver 925.
The metals will be guaranteed and certified and every jewel will be engraved with the name of the print maker, the date of mold making and the silver 925 stamp guarantee.
All jewels can be worn as necklace pendants or as bracelet charms and will be accessorized with either a tissue/velvet ribbon or a leather or fabric chord.
HOW IT WORKS..
If the fundraising campaign is successful, Creativity Farm Uk will send each backer a kit containing non-toxic molding material (normally used by dentists) and instructions on how to make a mold of the foot or the hand of your child or of the paw print of your pet or of a finger print of your loved one (take a look on the video presentation to see how it is easy to make that). The kit with your mold will be mailed by you back to Creativity Farm Uk in London where it will be prepared for casting which will then be carried out by Paola in Valenza, Italy’s renowned jewelery making capital.
At this point the jewel will be finished by the artist who will use her creative talent to make the piece a truly unique work of art and sent back to you.
