Silver jewelry touched by the ones you love

Our children make imprints on our hearts from the moment they are born. Thanks to Smallprint silver jewelry, you can literally feel their imprint wherever you go.

Local mother, Suzanne Henderson is offering a unique service in the Okanagan opening Smallprint Okanagan, which specializes in the production of handcrafted jewelry that captures the fingerprint of your loved one in silver.

The items make a personal gift for any occasion.

“I first came across Smallprint in Saskatoon where my two children were born,” said Henderson. “It’s just such an original and fantastic idea. With my kids now in school full-time, I have been looking for a work opportunity that is flexible and lets me work with great people. Smallprint offers just that, but what makes it even better is knowing that I can create a truly unique and precious keepsake for my customers. I love what I do and I can’t wait to share Smallprint with everyone in the Okanagan.”

Smallprint Okanagan creates necklace pendants, bracelet charms, dogtags, cuff links, keyrings and more by gently pressing a person’s fingerprint directly into the silver, with the item then fired in a kiln to form solid silver.

No moulds are taken; which means the silver keepsake has literally been touched by your loved one. Hand and footprints, drawings, and love notes can also be turned into silver keepsakes. Since opening last month, the response to Smallprint has been incredible amongst parents and grandparents.

Bookings can be made for private one-to-one sessions or for larger groups. Suzanne will also be working through shops in the Okanagan and attending local events, details of which can be found on the Smallprint Okanagan Facebook page.

Smallprint operates franchises in 20 countries worldwide including the UK, Australia, United States and Canada. The company was the first and remains the only one to produce high quality silver fingerprint keepsakes, using a network of trained franchisees. The business was started in the UK by mother-of-two Maija Pykett in 2004 and is one of the fastest-growing jewelry franchises in the world.
