Keepsake Business Tools, Equipment & Supplies

Keepsake Business Tools, Equipment & Supplies

Author : Michelle Williams

I am often asked what tools and equipment are necessary to Start a Keepake Business.  This very much depends upon whether you intend to start a Life Casting Business or a Keepsake Jewellery Business, therefore, I will outline below what tools and equipment you will need to get started, in either case:

Life Casting Tools, Equipment & Supplies

If you wish to start a life Casting Business, you will need to ensure that you have attended the appropriate Life casting Training Courses. Then you will need the following tools, materials and equipment to get started.

Baby Hand & Feet Casting Supplies

For traditional Baby Hand and Feet Casting, you will require the following essential tools and equipment:

These are the basic Baby Life Casting Tools and Supplies that you will need, which are all available to buy as a set, within in our Baby Casting Starter Kit.  However, you will also need Shadow Box Frames and Plinths to mount your Baby Casts, along with a muti-purpose tool, to sand and cut your Baby Casts down to size, along with a Hot Glue Gun for bonding and framing. 

However, if you wish to extend your range of life casting products and services, beyond traditional Baby Hand and Feet Casting, to include 2D Prints, Cold Cast Metal, Resin Casting and Clay Impressions, you find everything you need within each of our advanced Life Casting Starter Kits. 

Silver Keepsake Jewellery Tools, Equipment & Supplies

If you wish to learn how to make silver Clay Jewellery and are asking yourself, how do you make a fingerprint mould and how to you make a fingerprint necklace, we cover all of this, in our Fingerprint Jewellery Training Courses. However, if you are asking more specifically, what tools and equipment you will need to make Fingerprint Jewellery and Silver Handprint Jewellery, I am happy to outline what you will need below:

Silver Fingerprint Jewellery

To make Silver Fingerprint Jewellery, you will need the following, essential jewellery making supplies:

All of these items can be purchased independently through the amazon links on my eshop, or alternatively, I have put together a convenient low-cost Silver Fingerprint Kit, which contains everything you need to get started. 

How to fire Silver Fingerprint Jewellery

Although you can manually fire your Silver Fingerprint Jewellery, this is not recommended, as I explain in this video: Do I need a Kiln to make Silver Fingerprint Jewellery?  In addition, to the above tools and equipment, you will therefore, also need a small Jewellery Kiln. I would also recommend a Jewellery Barrelling Machine and Barrelling Powder and Stainless Steel Shot.

How to make Silver Handprint Jewellery & Artwork Jewellery

Aswell, as learning how to make fingeprint jewellery, if you also wish to learn how to make Silver Handprint Jewellery and Artwork Jewellery, you will need the additional tools, materials and supplies to make Silver Handprint Jewellery. 

All of these items can be purchased independently through the amazon links on my eshop, or alternatively, I have put together a convenient low-cost Artwork & Silver Handprint Jewellery Kit which contains everything you need to get started. 

You will also require a laptop and Printer/Scanner to create your Silver Handprint & Artwork Negatives.
