our roots

Kalí Zoë Designs is a company created by two sisters, Arianna and Callie Spiros.  The jewelry they design and make are inspired by all things natural.

Callie and Arianna grew up on the north shore of Long Island, New York and have lived in many cities since.

Callie is a recent graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (BFA in sculpture and design). She is a metal artist, large and small, and is always enamored at the exploratory nature these processes lead to. In addition to creating and working at Kali Zoe Designs, she works the Metal Shop at CCA - California College of the Arts. Callie also received her 200hr yoga certification from Sivananda International Yoga Vedanta in Nassau, The Bahamas and continues to incorporate the practice into her daily life and work.

Arianna attended Tulane University in New Orleans where she studied anthropology and international development, and spent time living in Cape Town, South Africa and Geneva, Switzerland. She was a teacher for America Fellow and worked in arts-integration and leadership, in addition to studying and teaching ISHTA and Katonah Yoga. She is currently part of an Advanced Painting Residency at Columbia University but resides in sunny Miami.

Our jewelry is hand-made in the U.S. with recycled metals, conflict-free stones, and has a purpose beyond the usual confines of jewelry. Our unique Mudra design applies pressure to the LI4 pressure point between the thumb and forefinger. This point is known to relax the central nervous system, alleviate headaches, anxiety, stress, and increases circulation. Our other designs aim to connect the body to nature and in turn to your self.

After all, Kali Zoe translates to “good life, good wellness” in Greek.
