Take a look at our process of making Urbain pieces come to life!
What makes Urbain unique is that we gather the raw materials we work with ourselves. Since we've started we've traveled thousands of miles to find materials from underground mines, the bottom of rivers, and historic sites. Don't worry though, we get all of our materials legally!
There is a reason most makers don't gather their own materials. The rare materials we use are incredibly difficult to work with; but, that hasn't scared us! By using tools like files, drills, chisels, and saws we are able to turn the rugged materials into usable pieces.
Once the pieces are usable, we combine them with metals like stainless steel, sterling silver, antique brass, and 14k gold. These beautiful chains, clasps, and tags give the natural look an elegant finish. Others will ask where your pieces are from, but don't worry, you'll have an answer.
