T. Kahres's organic, rockin roll jewelry!

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.
