Thumbies feature a fingerprint to convey the power of the human connection. That can mean a bond with someone in your life you hold dear, or someone who has passed on, but with whom you wish to retain a tangible link. We can forge Thumbies from the print of any finger, or even from the imprint of a hand or foot.
To create that print in .925 sterling silver or 14k yellow or white gold we start by capturing the two-dimensional print with a digital scanner. Our skilled and experienced artisans select the portion of that scan that has the most unique lifelines and ridges, which is reproduced in a three-dimensional custom mold, then cast in metal with nearly perfect fidelity. After hand-finishing the piece, our team can swap out the standard bail for a genuine or Swarovski gemstone.
A variety of options for customization are available. For instance, instead of selecting a traditional charm, you can opt for a Heartfelt Thumbie, which still features a fingerprint but, naturally, in the shape of a heart. Or, feel free to look at our Thumbeads—elegant keepsakes that fit onto standard memory bracelets.
CREATE YOUR THUMBIE
Touch can be a central component of our connections to our pets, as much as it informs our human connections. To capture the power of those bonds, our Buddies Collection offers pet prints such as paws, noses, hooves, and talons.
As with Thumbies, to forge our Buddies pet prints in .925 sterling silver or 14k yellow or white gold we start by capturing the print with a digital scanner. Our skilled and experienced artisans select the portion of that scan that has the most unique characteristics, which is reproduced in a custom mold, then cast in metal with nearly perfect fidelity to the original imprint. We then hand-finish each piece and can swap out the standard bail for a genuine or Swarovski gemstone. Meadow Hill can now even cast Buddies in bead form, ideal for memory bracelets.
CREATE YOUR BUDDIE
Most jewelry represents something. In addition to representing it, a Meadow Hill Cremation Keepsake is the something. Our newest line, the Phoenix Collection takes inspiration from the legend of the phoenix and its rise from ashes to help pay the greatest tribute to a loved one.
Our artisans—all of whom have undergone bereavement training—handle your loved one’s remains with great respect to preserve the deceased’s ashes in a specially developed, protective resin and set it securely into a hand-finished pendant or bead.
The resin has been tested to withstand many common household chemicals and comes in five rich colors: yellow, red, green, blue, and purple. Select pieces can be augmented with genuine or Swarovski gemstones. There are four primary designs—the cross, Family Ties pendant, Infinity Heart pendant, and Bead—some of which, like our Thumbies, can feature a fingerprint.
CREATE YOUR PHOENIX KEEPSAKE
Meadow Hill’s Noble Bronze® collection answers the call of affordability. It’s a line of keepsakes such as the Classic Oval, Single Rectangle, and Open Heart, all featuring either a human fingerprint or a paw print and honoring our mission to keep the human connection tangible.
Noble Bronze pieces share the elegance and print-centric nature of the Thumbies and Buddies collections, but with twists. Designs range from the universally recognizable shape and look of the military-inspired KeyTag™ to the symbiosis of man and his best friend symbolized on the Double Rectangle, which can feature a human print juxtaposed with a pet impression.
