Nature Inspires Our Fall Urban Pewter Lineup

We’re thrilled to introduce our Urban Pewter Nature collection, just in time to celebrate fall. Our bold, organic, and earthy collection was inspired by the textures and feel that leaves and other elements of nature evoke.

As you know, nature is constantly changing and evolving. We wanted to capture the essence of the organic flow of the natural world, and to that end, we created sets using the Mayan sun, tulips, ivy and maple leaves, and coral tree of life branches.

The designs come in earrings, rings, bracelets, and necklaces--some of which can be worn together as a set for even more dramatic effect. They’re the perfect addition to your wrap dress, light sweater, or other fall apparel.

The Urban Pewter Collection is as affordable as it is functional. Prices range from $20 to $125, and this collection won’t be around long. We hope you love wearing this collection as much as we loved creating it!

Celebrate Your Love of Yoga With Urban Om

I find that yoga inspires more creativity in my jewelry making, and makes me feel more balanced in life. I’m off to a good start for my day if I get in a few Sun Salutations when I wake up. That’s why I created the Urban Om collection: jewelry inspired by the grace and flow of yoga asanas.

In the collection, I created Buddha-inspired rings, pendants and bracelets with the universal symbol for “Om,” and earrings sporting hamsa, the Middle Eastern symbol of protection against the evil eye.

No yoga practice would be complete without the King Dancer Pose, right? That’s why I recently added Tree of Life/King Dancer pendants to the collection, available in both pewter and 24 karat gold dipped pewter.

Our Seated Asana pendants, also available in pewter and gold, are popular with yoginis. And I’m especially proud of the Lotus pieces I crafted for the Urban Om collection. Each is handcrafted to accent the delicate features of the lotus leaves. Because the lotus symbolizes spiritual and mental purity, it’s great to wear when you need to clear your mind and focus.

If pewter isn’t your style, check out our new bracelet collection, made of antique brass, recycled wood beads, and brass beads. The beads are Mushana--paper beads made from recycled magazines and newspaper, created by Nigerian widows. The great thing about the Urban Om collection is that there’s something for every taste. I’ve even had people tell me they don’t practice yoga, but still love the collection!
