Elis Kauppi could be considered the Grandfather of modernist jewellery. As the foremost figure, his vision and contemporary designs inspired a generation of makers and launched Finland onto the international jewellery design scene.

In 1945, aged 24, Kauppi founded his renowned jewellery workshop 'Kupittaan Kulta', in Turku, Finland. Part of a younger generation of makers, driven to innovate in part by the difficult circumstances of war and in part by a desire to push the barriers of the accepted standards of jewellery design at that time, Kauppi's work would forever change the face of jewellery design.

Inspiration to so many who followed, his attention to simplicity and form stood out. As a true modernist, his designs emphasize abstraction, rejecting the popular flower and leaf designs that prevailed in much more traditional forties design. With strong focus on craftsmanship and integrity of design, his bold creations remain strikingly relevant today.

He was one of the first to use Finnish sourced stones such as granite and spectrolite, incorporating them into unique designs in fresh and innovative ways. The exciting results attracted international attention with Kauppi exhibiting internationally, and winning prestigious prizes. Without doubt, as a result of his creative work, demand for Finnish jewellery worldwide increased dramatically.

A true modernist, Kauppi’s designs emphasize abstraction, rejecting the popular forties naturalistic flower and leaf designs. With strong focus on craftsmanship and integrity of design, his bold creations remain strikingly relevant today.
