Most of my designs are inspired by NATURE, the ENVIRONMENT, and FOOD. I unite seemingly disparate interests in all things HIGH TECH and futuristic with heartfelt environmentalism to create objects that speak of my interest in the future of humankind. Designs are intended to be beautiful while reminding us of our tenuous place in the universe and our relationship with the rich network of life around us. All of my products are produced using modern technologies. These technologies allow for ease of customization and will ultimately allow distributed manufacturing. They include computer aided design (CAD), computer aided routing, laser cutting, and 3-d printing (CAM).

Urban Alchemist proudly represents jeweler T. Kahres who has successfully sold with us since the beginning in 2008.
Teresa Kahres has been designing her line of nature-inspired jewelry from her studio in the heart of D.U.M.B.O., Brooklyn; a stimulating community of burgeoning artists.
Although she also works as a silversmith, her love of the outdoors has steered her towards enameling, a medium that allows for the use of colors in a way that more closely captures the essence of the objects that inspire her.
The torch method enables her to manipulate these colors into fine lusters, and she often embellishes her pieces with her signature use of pearls. While her pieces, often castings of organic matter such as sea urchins, leaves, and shells, have an ethereal quality, they also possess strength and substance.
These super sweet stuffed animals are hand-crafted in a smoke-free studio in brooklyn with loving care and a bit of quirkiness. All items are one-of-a-kind, made from a combination of vintage/japanese/new fabrics. Urban Alchemist was in New York Magazine and Rabbitsmoon was featured!
Urban Alchemist choose some delicious antique replica porcelain milk bottles, available in half-pints, quartz size bottles as well as her famous glow lanterns. The designs include four distinct dairies: Cloverleaf Dairy, Hood Dairy/Boston, Concord Dairy, and Stephen Dairy/PA. Alyssa works out of a studio in an old warehouse in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
Joetta Maue's work has been exhibited throughout the country and featured on a number of blogs and online journals. Urban Alchemist now hosts a number of her intricately embroidered pieces on one of a kind vintage linens. Joetta also welcome's custom orders. Don't miss these spectacular works of art....
