HEART THUMB PRINT NECKLACE
Close up of heart (indentation is the thumb print

Close up of back of heart

I made this to be more of kid's project for a child to do for a loved one, but it could be made into a more grown-up version by using jump rings, clasps and a chain instead of ribbon.

The pictures I took really do not do it justice because it looks much better in person and you can easily see the ridges of the finger print.

Cost for each necklace is less than 50 cents each.
