Handmade in Melbourne, Australia, Kalinowski Jewellery is created by the partnership of Viktor Kalinowski and Elaine Rieger. Known for the colorful anodized aluminum range, this contemporary jewelry practice is inspired by nature and focuses on clean forms with that pop of color! Anodized aluminum and sterling silver are the materials predominately used in the jewelry work.
A sculptor and jeweler, Viktor trained with professional artisans in Poland and is also self-taught through experimentation. Elaine has an art therapy background and a lifelong fascination with color.
Viktor Kalinowski jewelry and sculptures are in many private collections around the world. The Melbourne Museum in Victoria has acquired one of Viktor’s medallion objects, and he has previously been commissioned for several public sculpture works.
Viktor has exhibited in the United States three times, has won an Australian sculpture prize, and created a monumental stonework at the International Sculpture Symposium in South Australia.
