Petite Prints is a Christchurch business which was set up in 2010 by Gail Harris, Gail had a vision of capturing your loved ones fingerprints in fine silver, creating something which can be treasured forever. Petite Prints is now 10 years old and I (Lana Ogilvie) continuing on with the special task of preserving precious moments in time.
Where possible your loved one's impression will be taken directly into a silver clay. This means your jewellery has actually been touched by someone you love. If this isn't possible I can provide you with a fingerprint mould kit. You'll be able to keep that special person close to your heart at all times.
Each Petite Prints’ charm is lovingly handcrafted from fine silver. They are stamped with the fine silver hallmark (999FS) and finished with solid sterling silver fittings, unless otherwise stated. These charms come in a variety of shapes and can be purchased individually or you can choose to have them attached to a stunning piece of jewellery from the Petite Prints’ collection.
A great deal of time, care and attention to detail goes into making every single charm, meaning the finished piece is as individual as the person that created the fingerprint!
I am a mum of two rascals, a Designer, a Jewellery maker, a Painter, a Gardening enthusiast, a Sewer, and a ‘maker of things’. Gaining a Bachelor of Design at Christchurch Polytechnic, I majored in Graphic Design and Photography before joining an Advertising Agency as a Graphic Designer. In my professional career I've worked as a Senior Graphic designer, Studio Manager and Digital Project manager here in New Zealand and in Australia.
Now with a young family and after some busy years rebuilding our home following the Christchurch earthquakes, I'm very much enjoying being able to create something special and unique that will be truly treasured. I also love all the other hands on creativity projects I do with my family, whether that’s building cardboard fire trucks, baking flat breads, make fairy houses, gardening or rock painting. If you head over to my Instagram, I sharing some of my other creative projects on my stories there.
Thanks for reading.
