Baby Steps

Having a baby will change your life, and the love you share will leave an indelible mark in your heart. But even as your little one seems to grow up before your eyes, one of these custom footprint necklaces can be come a treasured memento of the first steps of his or her life.

After ordering this necklace, the recipient will be sent a footprinting kit, with helpful instructions and a 100% child-safe, non-toxic ink pad. The ink washes off easily with soap and water. Then, after using the included form to mail the footprints to artist Jenny Gaynor, the image will be shrunk down and printed on a handmade glass pendant. The pendant comes suspended from a delicate silver chain accented with tiny semiprecious stones. Pendant handmade by Jenny Gaynor in California.

Jenny Gaynor, a Los Angeles-based artist known for her airy, almost ethereal glass creations seeks to provide meaning to the things we touch everyday, thus creating handmade pieces of jewelry and art. Using her exceptional skills deriving from years of training under world-renown glass artists in Murano, Italy, Gaynor's vision to defeat redundancy has made her succeed in creating something that is truly unique.

Gaynor began working with glass in 1999 at Tulane University in New Orleans and got her Masters in Art Therapy at Southern Illinois University. She broadened her skills from glassblowing to lampworking, and with an insatiable desire to improve her proficiency, Gaynor spent several summers in Murano, Italy studying with the masters at the Abate Zanetti School of Glass and at Urban Glass in Brooklyn, New York.

In 2003 Jenny used her art therapy background to develop a children's program while in Murano. The program is still part of the annual curriculum at the Abate Zanetti School of Glass today. The marriage of her background as an art therapist and glass artist is beautifully portrayed in the use of symbolism in her art.

Gaynor's past accomplishments also include production glass blowing for Nuance Glass Studio in New Orleans, LA and Third Degree Glass Factory in St. Louis, MO where she also spent two years teaching glassblowing and lampworking.

Gaynor's vision is conveyed through the transparent quality of the glass medium itself. She fabricates all the glass components on her torch using the traditional Muranese lampworking technique and combines them with sparkling semi-precious gemstones. Whether in her lampwork jewelry or newly introduced custom photo transfer vases, her final products are a whimsical, charming, truly one of a kind piece of art.

All pieces are created by hand in Jenny's studio in Los Angeles, California.

Comments about CUSTOM BABY FOOTPRINT STAMP NECKLACE:

I got this last year for my first mother's day and it lasted until the friday before memorial day. I was at the drs with my daughter and the pendant fell off of the chain. i was lucky enough to find it, but now it sits collecting dust instead of being worn.

It's A [$]Sticker

By 

from USA

Comments about CUSTOM BABY FOOTPRINT STAMP NECKLACE:

Customers need to know that the footprint is merely a decal that's affixed to the glass (which, in my case, also had obvious imperfections). Uncommon Goods is doing customers a major disservice by not making this perfectly clear, considering that ALL SALES ARE FINAL and unimpressed customers have zero recourse.

      DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!

      By 

      from North Hollywood

      Comments about CUSTOM BABY FOOTPRINT STAMP NECKLACE:

      Please do not waste your money on this product. I thought it was great when I got it in the mail but I wore this necklace while wearing sunscreen and when I took of the necklace it had ruined the foot print image and desolved it right off the glass. The image is not actually in the glass they just "Glue" it to the glass. They tell you not to shower with it, but never anything about it disolving when you wear sunscreen. [$] wasted on a cheaply made piece of glass on a chain now.

        Comments about CUSTOM BABY FOOTPRINT STAMP NECKLACE:

        I got this as a first mother's day gift for myself! I love it and taking my son's footprints were so easy! I did not get a copy of my son's footprints in the hospital and thought this would be the perfect way to preserve them. It is a bit pricey, and the only downside to the product was that the image is laid on top of the glass rather than in the glass. I just got it so I cannot comment on the quality the print has being laid on the glass, but I would feel better about having spent that much money if it was infused in the glass and I was 100% sure it would not wear off. The work of the artist is wonderful, and I really do hope it lasts!

        Love this necklace!! I was very skeptical about it actually being my child's footprints, but it is!! They ship the kit and get the necklace back to you in a very timely measure!! The chain that it comes on is very pretty also! This will definitely be a piece of jewelry I treasure forever!!

            I received a kit as a Mother's Day gift and was so excited to get the completed necklace. The packaging was really cute and the instructions were clear. My necklace arrived one week later and was such an adorable representation of my baby girl's footprints! Its really simple and understated. This is a sentimental gift that I will always treasure.

                This was a gift for Mothers Day and I was so surprised and touched. My daughter's footprints are exactly replicated on the glass. It is a lovely idea and I have already gotten lots of compliments.

                  Comments about CUSTOM BABY FOOTPRINT STAMP NECKLACE:

                  I am very unhappy with this product. I could have done this myself for less than $100 and it would have had more than a $0.99 chain. It is not durable enough to be worn daily. Misrepresented, "infused in glass" means more than "printed on glass" to me. This is not an economy you can waste [$] on something so low quality. I will not buy another product from this company.

                    I ordered two of these for mother's day for my mother and mother in-law. The kit arrived quickly and as advertised took just under two weeks to get the necklaces. Still cute but I don't believe they are worth the price. I thought the prints would be in the glass but they are clear stickers on the glass! Very disappointed, feel like I could scan in and print out my babies foot prints and stick the sticker on a clear glass pendent. Just feel you should be warned that it is a sticker on glass the prints aren't in the glass.
