Paweł Kaczynski works in a variety of disciplines, but his main and most powerful mode of expression is nevertheless jewellery. His style is characterised by surprising combinations of materials, and amber is one his identifying marks not only in his native Poland but worldwide. Kaczynski is unique in his ability to transform silver, steel and aluminium to look more like textiles than metalwork. Like a spider, Kaczynski “weaves” amber into his metallic webs, which seem to be created of fragile threads.

Kaczynski graduated from the Academy of Art in Łódź. He began making jewellery in 1990 and became a member of the Poland Jewellers’ Association five years later. He is a member of the Six artists’ group, who are united by a desire to create uncommon, extraordinary and unique pieces of jewellery. Since 2001 this group of six artists has organised over 20 exhibitions in Poland, Great Britain, Austria and Sweden. Kaczynski himself has participated in more than 100 exhibitions worldwide and has won several awards. His work can be seen in the Kaliningrad Amber Museum (Russia), the Jewellery Art Museum in Kazimierz Dolny (Poland) and the Amber Museum in Gdansk (Poland) as well as private collections worldwide.
