On a walk by the North Sea, Katja and Stefan Boscheinen watched their two-year-old son and wondered how they could capture his footprints in the sand,which started their journey of becoming jewellery designers.
Of course, this concept of using footprints in jewellery was not new, but the Boscheinens did not agree with existing methods of taking the prints, the quality produced, or the designs.
“We did not like that the footprints were taken with ink on paper. Most details were lost and the outlines were anything but sharp,” Katja Boscheinen explains. “Over the course of two years we developed our own way to take the prints using step-in foam and then transferring that onto silver.”
