Recycled Bicycle Earrings: Clover
The Clover was chosen to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. It's fun, familiar and livens up what can be a dreary month of March. These earrings not only reflect your great sense of style, but your environmental conscience and maybe your love of bicycles! Even if you're not Irish, you can share in the great traditions of Irish culture. Slàinte!
This style includes a stainless steel fishhook ear wire and jump rings. The clover is from recycled bicycle inner tube and the link is from a used chain. Please Note: The links show signs of normal chain wear. They have been thoroughly cleaned and polished. We do not use new chain links unless they are left over from an install...if we only used new links, then it just wouldn't jive with our mission :) Therefore, the pair you purchase may differ slightly from those shown. Each earring has a 4mm Swarovski Xillion Bicone green glass bead to match the theme for each month.
Just to be clear: I am a bicycle mechanic, not a jeweller. That said, we take the same meticulous approach to making things as we do with our vintage bicycle restorations. These earrings were the result of the desire to use more of the materials we normally discard in our business. We also wanted to make something meaningful and fun; more than just another recycled bicycle earring. Something that spoke to an occasion or obsession.
We have 12 different styles to reflect different monthly themes. Stay tuned for more!
