Thumbuddies pendants keep a loved one’s memory as close as a hug.

Thumbies® Inc., creator of one-of-a-kind jewelry and keepsakes worn or carried in memory of a loved one, announces the launch of its newest product line, designed in the spirit of a life celebrated, and of memories kept close.

The heartwarming pendants in the new Thumbuddies® line provide the comfort of a friendly “buddy” shape, with options that include a bear, a kangaroo, a mouse, a monkey, a turtle, and a dragon – with Thumbies’ signature fingerprint or thumbprint embedded within.

These exclusive character pendants are cast in bronze, plated in rhodium and fully sculpted on both sides. A stainless-steel chain is included.

The line was designed in part to acknowledge the growing memorial popularity of celebrating life rather than focusing on loss, as well as part of the Thumbies commitment to the continuous expansion of a product line created to ease the pain of loss with as much personalization as possible.

No Two Mourners Are Alike 

“People mourn and memorialize their loved ones in as many different ways as there are different people. We knew from our interactions with our funeral industry partners that demand for memorial objects and jewelry is growing, and includes a broad range of ages and relationships,” said Thumbies President Wayne Read.

“The Thumbuddies line expands our offerings to include a much wider range of people who will be comforted by keeping their loved one close with a memorial pendant,” Read said.

Arc Lighters Added to Line of Memorial Products 

The company’s line of memorial products has also grown to include a line of USB rechargeable arc lighters that use electrical current instead of open flame as the ignition source.

Like most Thumbies memorial products, the arc lighters are customizable to include the paw or nose print of a beloved pet in addition to the fingerprint, thumbprint or handprint of a family member or friend.

These comforting new products are available now. Visit thumbies.com for more information.
