Run your finger across the surface of this sterling silver Buddies memorial keepsake and feel a spiritual connection to your beloved pet. The clearly defined detailed surface of the embedded print is from their actual paw prints, nose prints, or hoof prints. An instant family heirloom to be passed from generation to generation. Each Buddies is a custom piece of art. Three-dimensional Buddies are crafted from simple ink paw prints, nose prints, or hoof prints using the ancient art of lost-wax casting. A 3D computer imaging program is used to help create a wax mold of the paw prints, nose prints, or hoof prints from a scanned ink print. Our artisans meticulously sculpt the print to perfectly mimic the original.
