About Us

 

It was during a vacation to Maine that my husband and I first saw vintage silverware in a totally different light. A local craftsman had transformed an old knife into a small flower vase; old spoons draped with shimmering beads had been upcycled into wind chimes; and forks reshaped to create small pieces of jewelry. It was wonderful to see how, with a little creativity, items long forgotten had been given a new lease on life. Little did my husband and I know at that time that this brief encounter was to become the start of our own personal love affair with antique & vintage metals; one that would lead to the launch of our own design company—Simply Kalina.  

 

Many of our product began life in a different form, often  reclaimed from the dusty corners of antique shops and vintage markets.  Neglected silverware isn't always attractive however with careful workmanship, imagination, and a lot of TLC, we have upcycled a multitude of forgotten treasures to create a line of jewelry and gifts for you to enjoy or share.

Most of our products began life in a different form, often  reclaimed from the dusty corners of antique shops and vintage markets. Neglected silverware isn't always attractive. However, with careful workmanship, imagination, and lots of TLC, we can give them a whole new lease on life.    

 

Creating bespoke pieces such as bridal bracelets, rings or pendants using family heirlooms brings us a tremendous amount of joy.

 

With all   commissioned work, we spend time listening to your needs &  tailoring designs to fit your budget and personal taste.  From the teeniest pearl to personalized engraving, our goal is to provide you with an end product that will become a lasting treasure for many years to come.

Who's Kalina?

People are often surprised to learn that Kalina is not a family name, rather an Australian girls name that orginated from one of the oldest tribes-the Wemba Wemba,.  Kalina means love.  

 

Having spent many years living down under, Ashley felt an instant connection with the Kalina name.  It seemed a perfect tribute to the beautiful sunburnt country that she loves so much and captures the essence behind the Kalina brand. Products that are made both with love, and from the heart.
