Hold upon Heart is a small family business, located in gorgeous Shropshire in the U.K, offering a stunning collection of personalised jewellery & accessories, made with your unique fingerprints, handprints & footprints, pawprints & doodles and more. A perfect way to celebrate parenthood, to celebrate a wedding, or in memory of a loved one
Our jewellery and accessories are hand made in Shropshire by designer-makers, Melanie & Jeff, also mum and dad to three small boys. Working with solid gold, sterling silver, real leather & more, we transform your cherished memories into wonderful bespoke gifts, perfect for both him & for her. With diverse and unique collections, which include rings, charms, necklaces, bracelets, cufflinks and keyrings, as well as personalised paper prints, there truly is something beautiful for everyone.
Since we began making Fingerprint Jewellery in 2012, we have worked tirelessly to create a collection of the finest fingerprint jewellery. Our focus is very much on achieving a truly high quality product, whether made from 18ct gold or stainless steel. After all, each piece of personalised jewellery we create is incredibly meaningful, whether featuring prints from a new baby, or memorial prints from a loved one, and we realise that such precious jewellery needs to be made to last.
Our premium True-Touch fingerprint collection is made using the ancient art of lost-wax casting. Your own unique fingerprints are captured in jewellers wax, which picks up the very finest of detail from prints. Once perfect, the wax model featuring your unique print is sent to our expert caster in London's prestigious jewellery quarter. To transform the wax into precious metal, a master mould is created, and the wax is 'burnt out' leaving a void into which molten precious metal can be poured. Once the metal has cooled the mould is opened revealing a perfect replica of your unique print in solid precious metal. Each casting is returned to us to finish by hand. Each piece can be further personalised with an engraved message on the reverse.
Our Ink Print Pattern fingerprint collection is all about those fingerprint loops, whorls and arches, captured in stunningly crisp detail, poured over beautifully designed charms, pendants, rings, cufflinks and keyrings. Made using ultra modern engraving technology, the focus of these pieces is on recreating the beautifully unique swirling fingerprint patterns, enlarged to cover the entire piece of jewellery, creating a modern and graphic spin on traditional fingerprint jewellery.
Exclusive to Hold upon Heart, our Ink Impressions fingerprint collection, combines the beauty of our foundry cast True-Touch collection, with the wonderfully clear detail of our engraved Ink Print Pattern fingerprint jewellery. Combining lost-wax casting with ultra modern engraving technology, each piece in this collection is made by deep engraving an ink or pencil fingerprint into a charm or pendant with a perfectly formed 'dimple'. With an impression you can feel with your fingers, these pieces remain as tactile as our true-touch pieces, but with a guaranteed clarity of fingerprint detail.
Our Handprint and Footprint, Pawprint and Personalised Jewellery collections, are made using traditional jewellers techniques and modern engraving technology. We do not use imported mass-produced blanks, and many of the designs in these collections are exclusive to Hold upon Heart.
We also offer rather unique leather goods, that are debossed with your fingerprints, hand and footprints, pawprints, doodles and more. Again, each piece is hand made in our Shropshire studio, worked from real leather, using traditional leather working techniques.
Finally, we have a small collection of personalised paper prints, made using your little one's hand and footprints. These unique paper prints make a beautiful addition to any nursery wall, and combined with a gift boxed print kit, a great baby shower gift.
