Meet Adina Jozsef

Adina Jozsef’s jewellery practice embodies the principle that well-finished components form the basis of a well-finished look. Developing through creative explorations of shapes and materials, rather than following fashion trends, her portfolio updates the traditional values of hand skills and precious materials through modern jewellery designs and applications. The components within and between her collections compliment and resonate with one another, with each bearing Adina’s trademark contemporary elegance, refinement and originality.

Adina was given her first blowtorch for her 14th birthday by her ever-encouraging mother, silversmithing in her bedroom before embarking on tertiary studies at the Enmore Design Centre, starting with the Advanced Diploma in Jewellery Design and then on to the Jewellery Trade Certificate. She established her practice as Koukii Designs in 2001, rebranding as Adina Jozsef in 2014, and sold her wares at Paddington Markets every Saturday until the end of 2012, transitioning the studio’s emphasis to online retailing and special commissions.

For Adina, wearing her creations is as fun as the joy of making. Believing that superior craftsmanship has intrinsic worth, she relishes the challenge of finishing her pieces to a level of perfection. Adina has gained a deep, almost intuitive, understanding of the metal she uses. It is a material with hardness and resistance requiring physical effort to master, and her jewellery’s sleek lines, shapes and high polish defy its handmade origins.


At Adina Jozsef we do not cut corners when it comes to our workmanship and unless required for a particular design, our jewellery is not featherweight, this ensures your jewellery lasts normal wear and tear.  We do not save on weight just to bring the price down and believe that jewellery should feel good on the body, giving the piece a luxurious feel.

In 1988 a group of manufacturing jewellers, aware of the traditions and a need for a higher degree of consumer protection in the precious metals industry, instigated and formed The Gold and Silversmiths Guild of Australia. The Guild is the only professional organization in Australia with a traditional and comprehensive system of marking precious metal items. Guild Members names and marks are permanently recorded, they abide by set standards of material, their work is clearly identified as genuinely made in Australia, and the date of manufacture can be recorded. The Guilds principal aim is to promote the Guild Mark as a symbol of excellence.
