About Us

Are you looking for jewellery that's as unique as you and your loved ones? If the answer is yes, then we can help you create that special piece for you. Like your loved ones, their fingerprints, hands and even paw prints are a part of what makes them who they are.

Hi, I am Rachael, the designer, silversmith and chief cook and bottle washer; oh and a mom of two adorable scallywags. With my husband, Chris, who also makes and does techie stuff, we run Sand Dollar Silver here in Nova Scotia creating memories in silver.

I started making silver jewellery in 2009 after my second son was born - I wanted some 'me' time and had always loved one-of-a-kind pieces of jewellery. I then fell in love with making personalised one-of-a-kind keepsake jewellery from silver clay. Like you I wanted something that was as truly unique as my little guys. I wanted to capture those tiny fingers and toes and keep them with me always.

We have a studio in the UNESCO heritage site of Lunenburg. It's a great family day out if you are coming down to have a print taken; contact us if you want some ideas of what to do down here. We can be found at the studio as well as craft shows in the Maritimes, pop-up shops in kids/baby stores and, when you order a kit, you can take prints of loved ones anywhere in the world. If you want something totally fun, how about a home party where you can receive your piece for FREE. Want to know more? Then contact us here.

We have been so lucky to bring joy and happiness into people's lives; the look on a fathers face when he sees his daughters fingerprint on a guitar pick or a new mother receiving a bracelet with her twin babies fingerprints on it. Seeing your little ones grow and then adding their sisters and brothers prints to existing jewellery is really such a privilege. Watching you and your family grow; oh that includes the dogs and cats too! We really do have the best jobs in the world.
