In 2009 two hands began the journey into an ancient world of metal crafting that has spun into an incomparable art form and carved out a niche in the world of hand-made jewelry design. Brooklyn-based Soull Ogun is an architect of precious metals, exotic stones and other materials dreamed up through her cosmic connection to nature and actualized with striking precision. Her carnal instinct for geometry, astrological balance and the ethereal significance of the elements she chooses to work with creates one of a kind pieces that correspond to her perception of each client's complexity as though it were born from it's wearer.
"All things have a process. A cycle. A birth and death. Without one the other cease. The beauty of life is that ALL needs to exist for existence to happen. It's the beauty of fragile and strength. Beginnings and Ends. With a beginning comes an end and in that same respect, with an end comes a beginning"—Soull Ogun
As a self-taught metal smith, Soull has evolved along with her craft over the years. Beginning only with a craving to create something that reflected an ancient truth, she began to find her voice by opening her mind to inspiration in all the things that surrounded her. Since her creative inception she has found a welcomed audience among artistic minds who pine for an admix of the earth and the cosmos represented by wearable art. Soull and her brainchild, Alkhemi9 has been featured in FADER and StyleLikeU as well as publications from Japan and Germany.
Being a constant student of life and art, Soull is also bringing her midas touch into the world of larger scale and interactive designs as well as lifestyle and home decor. As her journey progresses she will continue to maintain her important rustic approach that is both organic and eye catching. Holding fast to the antiquity of human origin and the equilibrium of bringing ancient techniques into a modern space; Alkhemi9 is a fresh perspective on the original concept of art - spiritual representation and the raw expression of identity.
