Time for Urban Armour™!

Iron is an ancient, enduring metal--and while very strong, is actually very lightweight. A metal to carry us out of the heavy times and into the strong,

unencumbered future.

"Urban-Armour™ is hand-wrought one at a time using timeless metalwork techniques

spanning millennia.  Urban-Armour™ is created solely by Colorado studio metal

artist, Chris Nelson, using 95% certifiable recycled high karat golds and iron

brought to temperatures of 1400-2000 degrees as much as three times or more in

its production---purification by fire."

Urban Armour™ has a feel that brings us back to our primal adornment desires--molten gold, and powerful iron that not only feels good, but imparts a look of indestructible substance and beauty.


It is with great regret that we are writing to inform you that our dear friend and gifted metalsmith Chris Nelson has passed away.

We want to thank you for all of your loving expressions of prayer and well wishes.  Your messages were all read to Chris’s daughter and it brought her great comfort in knowing he was so loved.  As you can imagine she is heartbroken and overwhelmed.

Chris’s much loved and constant companion Pickle is with a trusted friend where he can enjoy life to the fullest.

We want to assure you that we are supporting Chris’s daughter and that things are being taken care of carefully and lovingly.  Sales of his incredible work and beloved tools will be done in the near future to raise funds for his final expenses.  We will be sure to advise everyone when this date nears.

At this time, please do not send any flowers or other items.  We will update this post with a mailing address for cards as it is finalized.

His friends,

@Kay, @Judy, @Tonya
