URSA MAJOR JEWELRY Designer Kate Jones spent her childhood somewhere between the Caribbean and Maine, moving from a sailboat named Ursa Major to a house on a salt marsh. The inspirations for her work are wide and varied as this upbringing, but always reminiscent of the stillness of the sea. Kate launched Ursa Major jewelry in NYC in 2009. Currently splitting her time between quiet Maine and bustling New York City, all Ursa Major jewelry is handmade in-house using the most careful eye and finest, ethically-sourced materials. Ursa Major is an intimate practice, more than a business; the jewelry is as much about personal connection as it is function. Designed to be contemporary, yet timeless. Subtle, yet distinct. The definition of a modern heirloom.
