Material: Recovered bicycle parts. Materials include stainless steel bicycle spokes, semi-precious gemstones and precious metals. All earrings are hypoallergenic. By nature of stainless steel, all pieces are non-marking and non-tarnishing.
Gems and minerals are sourced from local gem cutters and dealers, with preference to gems cut by small scale, U.S. based artisan miners and gem cutters.
Care: Maintained with soap and water. Pieces will shine for years to come with no polishing necessary. To ensure lifespan of plating, store gold plated jewelry away from rubbing against other metals or abrasive materials.
Packaging: Comes in a mini cotton bag
End of life: Remove earring backers and dispose of in general garbage. Dispose earrings in metal recycling.
More reasons why we love them: Will Freeman and his team have a 100% supply chain transparency. We are proud to work with a company who celebrates the bicycle and its legacy of sustainability and freedom.
Their bicycle parts are recycled from community and retail bike shops up and down the West Coast, USA. BiciArte precious metals come from 100% recycled sources such as Rio Grande, Harmony Metals, and used coins. Our gemstones are sourced through small scale, primarily USA based artisan gem cutters and dealers. Read more about Biciarte and Will here!
