Sol Solis Jewellery review

Friday, 22 February 2013

Sol Solis Jewellery is a company run by 2 lovely Ladies called Rebecca and Ann. It was set up in 2010 after Ann completed a silversmithing course and incredibly they then taught themselves the techniques required to imprint a miniature hand or footprint, fingerprint, a simple drawing or even a pet's pawprint into pure silver.
 
Your design can be made into a ring, pendant, cufflinks, ear-rings, keyring or even a bespoke piece.
 
 
My lovely Husband decided on buying me a beautiful bracelet for Christmas with 3 charms.
 

The first charm has Livs handprint, the second her footprint and the third has her name & date of birth.
 
 

It came in a lovely little giftbox all tied up in a bow.
 
The first thing I noticed was the weight, it is a very chunky, solid piece, it feels wearable not like it will bend or break the first time you wear it. The quality really is excellent and to see the prints up close you can't argue that they are Liv's, the detail truly is amazing.
 
 
 

 
Inside the starter pack was 3 pieces of card, 3 small sealed inkless wet wipes and a list of easy peasy instructions.
 
The prints themselves were so easy to do, we had to make sure Livs hand was clean and dry, wipe with the wet wipe (no colour was transferred to Livs hand at all) then place on the card with a press and roll type motion, voila!
 
Rebecca had aleady advised me that any smudges could be edited out so we took photographs of the prints and emailed them over to check if they were ok before posting, to my surprise Rebecca stated that as the pictures were high quality we didn't even need to post the prints off, she could do it all from a photograph!!
 
After being sent 2 drafts to make sure we were happy with the shape, print placement etc and deciding what length bracelet to have, our part was all done. Three weeks later a parcel arrived that I wasn't allowed to see until the big day, let me tell you it was worth the wait!
