Ursa Major, a San Francisco-based jewelry brand was founded in 2009 by designer Kate Jones. The inspirations behind Ursa Major’s designs have varied throughout the years. Yet, they have been faithful to the reminiscences of Jones’s childhood; a sailboat named Ursa Major, a house on a salt marsh and the stillness of the sea between the Caribbean and Maine.
Ursa Major jewelry pieces have a contemporary, but timeless appeal and are all made by hand with finest materials. The reference of nautical chic gives them a vibe of nonchalance, while the minimal details and forms make these jewelry pieces refined, distinct and wearable in everyday life. The same mood is carried in the newest collection. Titled No. 5., it was showcased in delicate lookbook story, photographed by Nastassia Clucas Bruckïn. The plot for the beautiful story were all those precious daily moments from the designer’s personal life.
