Rita Winkler

Designer / Jeweller

Rita Winkler is a Designer/Jeweller trained in West Germany. There she worked as a designer and model maker for several jewellery companies before emigrating to Australia in 1985.

Since then she has taken part in many exhibitions here and overseas. She works for selected, renowned galleries throughout the country from where her work is collected worldwide.

Her contemporary designs encompass a vast range of simple but exclusive rings, earrings, pendants, lapel pins, cuff links, bracelets and uniquely crafted brooches in sterling silver, 24ct gold, various gemstones and pearls.

Architecture as well as nature inspire most of her designs. Looking outward she transforms that which already has been put into form.

Travelling in Australia, experiencing the Outback and in awe with the Australian landscape she deeply enjoys the land and the country life style.
