Aaron Shear and Barbi Touron are the co owners/designers for Urban Lace. Barbi Touron started out in a small garage below her apartment making jewelry for friends in 2006. As more people wore her jewelry and word of mouth spread, so did the demand for these unique creations. With orders growing beyond her ability to keep up, Barbi partnered with Aaron Shear and Urban Lace was born. They have been working together since September 2011 making new designs for the up coming year 2013. They believe that a business should be environmentally, animal and people friendly. They also feel that you should love what you do and do it without harm, without pollutants and with happy healthy employees. Barbi and Aaron strive to create Earth friendly products that not only people will love to wear, but will allow others to think about items in their everyday life a little differently. They hope their our jewelry will make people see a new way of living, a world where everything isn't disposable, but reusable.
