Some Ali Kauss’ earliest memories are of drooling over jewelry. Growing up in an artistic and entrepreneurial family made it easy to dream of someday owning and operating her own business. Although, finding Metalsmithing took her a few years, when she finally did, it was like coming home.
Ali Kauss’ work is an eclectic mix of Spirituality, Metaphysics, and Art. She feels like there is a common thread found in all of these and we have the ability to carry a profound message of connectivity with the objects we choose to wear.
We are spiritual beings having a human experience. She infuses Reiki into each and every piece and holds the highest intention for the individual who wears it, and everyone that comes into contact with her. Ali’s work speaks to the concept of Wabi Sabi, which is the art of imperfection. She intentionally mars the surfaces of the metals, takes guidance from the materials, and incorporates non-intended moves in the designs.
