the hands of a maker

fingerprint jewellery shiny polished
.
Since I took up making fingerprint jewellery all those years ago I have had to accept I will never have nice hands with beautiful nails... Surprisingly polishing silver is a very dirty job, as you will see from the snapshot above, the result of an hours late night polishing session. To get our silver to such a bright shine I go through 8 stages of polishing!

So when you get a piece of fingerprint jewellery from Hold upon Heart you can be sure it will sparkle, unlike my hands!!! Anyway, off to soak these mucky paws in the bath :)
