Katzinka

I am a Melbourne-based goldsmith and jewellery designer. Born and raised in Germany, I studied goldsmithing at the staatlichen Zeichenakademie (state drawing akademie) and jewellery design at the Fachhochschule für Gestaltung (Pforzheim).

I immigrated to Australia in 1999, to study Jewellery and 3D design at Curtin University in Western Australia. After an inspirational time on Western Australian beaches I moved to Melbourne in 2001 and established myself as an independent jeweller. My collections have been represented at Galleries across Australia.

I get my inspiration from the old, the odd, the found, the image, contrasts and colours, stones, the sparkle, the light and the heavy, the story, the movement, the moment, distance and lines.

In addition to designing around found objects, I favour a two dimensional approach. My drawings and sketches are transformed through the use of traditional techniques of hand engraving and carving to create three dimensional wearable pieces. Allowing my drawings to come to life.

All pieces are designed and handmade in my little blue studio in Melbourne.
