- Angelina Kafka
Statementalja&friends was founded in 2015 by the three jewelry artists and goldsmiths Alja Neuner, Elisabeth Habig and Angelina Kafka. United by their love for extraordinary jewelry and appreciation for craftsmanship, the three artists decided to take a unique approach to create a space for exploring jewelry as an art form.
The studio - encompassing a gallery, boutique and the goldsmiths’ workshop - is located in the heart of Vienna. One-of-a-kind conceptual art jewelry pieces are exhibited as well as high-end design jewelry lines by Austrian and international designers and artists. An essential part of the concept of alja&friends is the presentation of works by a variety of jewelry artists. Small series and jewelry lines by young designers are available regularly in the boutique, in addition to the curated and themed exhibitions that take place twice a year. With this approach alja&friends are aiming to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas and networking within the jewelry scene, while also educating the public about the many aspects of art jewelry.
